I started this mandala one evening while listening to a CD(set) by Dr. Michael Beckwith*. I've been a enthusiast of his since the early 90s, and he is a major Catalyst for me in regard to my inward journey of spiritual growth and transformation. On this particular CD, in addition to a soul-awakening message, he takes us through a powerful guided meditation in which it I saw a starburst of silvery-white shimmering light well-up rapidly from the Core of my being and rush through me. It then flashed behind my eyes and lingered a bit...as if to say "Yes...I'm Real". An awesome experience. It was exhilarating, assuring and a whole lot more that I cannot find the words to describe right now.
Anyway, you might already know that "eyes" have been showing up in my mandalas since I started creating them in May of this year. - (Making them was part of the Integrative Breathwork Weekend that I participated in at FullCircle Retreat in Wisconsin.) - Since I create them spontaneously, the EYE...as well as everything else...really does decide if, when and where it will show up; I just let it come through and create it accordingly. As I was just about finished with this mandala, while still listening to Dr. Beckwith, I had a flash of In-sight and realized that it indeed represented the "flashing starburst of light" I saw during the guided meditation...my Spiritual In-sight. What a gift this is...what a gift life is!
