FREE MANDALA WEEK FIVE

Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive,
and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.
—Anais Nin

Loving someone changes our lives forever. It is a risk because I know that I will never be the same if I choose to love and be loved. Love has shaped and re-shaped me, opened my eyes, opened my soul. Love has taken me on a journey that is exciting and sometimes frightening; one that is intensely happy and at times deeply painful. It is a journey without an end. A journey that draws me to explore far horizons and yet takes me closer and intimately to my inner core.

Through love I have discovered parts of myself, of others and of life that I never knew existed. Love is still a mystery to me, a magical force that colors my life. I cannot live without it.

PINK LOTUS MANDALA

Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself. Love possesses not nor would it be possessed, for love is sufficient unto love.’ Khalil Gibran Poet

 

LOVE vulnerability, trust and transformation

The pink lotus is perfection in itself. The bud does not try to open into the flower. It unfolds gently and naturally like magic. To be open to love requires trust. You need to risk being vulnerable. When we are in love we surrender our heart to another which begins the wonderful and beautiful process of unfolding. Through love you are transformed and with love you transform others. Love is perfect.

 

“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.”
Albert Einstein, The World As I See It
