FREE MANDALA WEEK FOUR
It's impossible to explain creativity. It's like asking a bird, 'How do you fly?' You just do.
Eric Jerome Dickey
Being creative is an intense feeling. I am not always comfortable with the urge, the inner pressure to make something, to create something. That something is not necessarily clear to me - it is not a set idea or picture but rather a feeling. It is a force or energy that comes from within seeking a way out. I am faced with the unknown, something that is still forming, something I am discovering about myself. What will it come out like? What will it look like? Maybe it will be painful or unacceptable or perhaps something beyond what I imagined it could be. Can I do it?
Being creative is like giving birth. You just have to do it.
DRAGONFLY AND LOTUS MANDALA
VICTORY- self confidence, stepping forward, success
In T’ai chi the final movement representing self mastery is known as ‘picking the lotus flower’. The dragonfly represents positive force, agility and victory. Their fast and agile flight shows mastery and poise. Together these great symbols come together at a time of completion. Acknowledge what you have already accomplished and recognize that the end is in sight. Be confident that you have the skills, knowledge and experience to create a positive outcome. Remain focused and use your expertise to complete the task with great success.
