‘The miracle is not to fly in the air or walk on the water; but to walk on the earth.’                                                                                                  Chinese proverb

Seen as the bringer of hope freeing us from endless cycles of the sufferings of life, the white elephant is revered as sacred.

Suffering is part of the human experience. Our physical body suffers hunger, cold, and pain and we suffer emotionally through hurt, betrayal, and loneliness. Being consumed by the constant demands of life one can feel a sense of loss, an emptiness, and alone. Such demands may seem never ending and can take from us our vitality and joy in ‘life’. The green temples are symbolic of sheltering and protecting your body and mind with a balanced diet and positive thoughts, so that you can heal.

The four white elephants in this mandala are turning the circle of time to remind you that nothing is permanent, not even suffering.  Renowned for their long memories, power and strength they show you that slowly and steadily you will find your way.  You have what it takes to do it. There is an opportunity to break free from a pattern that repeats itself in your life. You can push through even the greatest of obstacles and reconnect with your vitality, happiness and joy to live the life that you planned to have.

AFFIRMATION: I chose to let go of hesitation and find my way through, around, over or under any obstacle to create a new and fulfilling life.

“The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science.”
