MY SPRING MANDALA

Mandala c.davidson

It has been a long winter (and still continues) even though it is the middle of March in Nova Scotia. I felt compelled to create this mandala to conjure up my own internal spring.  Pema enlightens us, “Each person’s life is like a mandala – a vast, limitless circle. We stand in the center of our own circle, and everything we see, hear, and think forms the mandala of our life…we don’t get to choose what or who shows up in it…everything that shows up in your mandala is a vehicle for your awakening…”

I am practicing, standing in the center of my own shifting mandala… choosing (most of the time) to be present . I wonder what will happen today? And can I bravely stay open and present  in the center of my life?

What has happened or is happening in the center of your mandala today?
