The Divine Circle

 

 

MANDALA – A mandala is a geometric configuration of symbols. In various spiritual traditions, mandalas may be employed for focusing attention of practitioners and adepts, as a spiritual guidance tool, for establishing a sacred space and as an aid to meditation and trance induction. Wikipedia

Circles. Sacred spaces. No beginning. No end. Yet, beginnings become endings. Endings beginnings.

In the  Bhagavad Gita it is written, “Curving back within myself, I create again and again.”

Curving back I begin. I end. I begin. I end. Creating. Again and again.

Like waves. Ebbing in. Ebbing out. Returning. Retreating. Returning. Retreating. Again and again. Creating. Erasing. Creating. Erasing. No end. No beginning.

Like the bark of a tree, each circle of life grows bigger and wider with every passing moment.

The circle of life is constantly turning, curving back into itself, creating anew with each cursive return to the beginning that is the end of the beginning dissolving into the beginning again. Transformative. Just as every living organism on this planet is constantly weaving itself through a circle of transformation. Again and again.

Resistance is futile.

Life is a transformative journey. Our cells in constant motion. Our journey constantly evolving. Constantly curving back into itself to create, again and again. A more creative ‘me’ with every breath. A more connected ‘thee’. A more collective ‘we’.

Breath.

In. Out. In. Out. One constant wave circling back, creating, sustaining evolving life, again and again. Growing ever more powerful, beautiful, evolved with every curve back into itself.

I created a mandala yesterday in my Sheltered Wonder art journal. It feels… sacred. As if I am standing at the threshold of the divine essence of my human nature. It is calling me to step through. To release. To leap. To create. Again and again.

At the threshold, I stand bathed in the essential nature of the light that shines eternally from within, without and all around. Eyes closed. Arms wide open. Heart beating wildly, I curve back within myself to create again and again.

I step through. Again and again.

I begin again to create.

Life is wondrous. Life is miraculous. Life is a circle of Love.

Namaste

And… just to get your blood pounding through your veins, your heart beating wildly in love and life as you curve back within yourself to create, again and again….

  1. Louise, your post is so beautiful, filled with mystery and spirituality.
    Making me fly above in another realm. Creating.

    I love the whole post but will pick out one stanza that feels so close.:
    ” At the threshold, I stand bathed in the essential nature of the light that shines eternally from within, without and all around. Eyes closed. Arms wide open. Heart beating wildly, I curve back within myself to create again and again.”

    Your post is filled with such shimmering truths.

  2. First I had to watch the whole Lion King video (and now want to watch the whole thing coz, I’m still a kid at heart and love me some Disney or Pixar!)

    This was wonderful from beginning to end and I have to agree with Miriam. That stanza stood out and I reread it, letting it soak in.

      And thank you — it truly does amaze me sometimes what happens when I quit thinking and just allow myself to be present in the divine light of the now.
