The Cutting Edge
Thank you for hanging in there with me during my blogging slow-down, and I love the wonderful comments you left for me :). I've been enjoying creature comforts of the season: a slower pace, staying warm, puttering and enjoying home. I've also been contemplating a crochet/knitting project, and cooking more than usual...but still not that much (ha ha)!
Now...about this mandala. I realized after making it that it's about me realizing my Cutting Edge of awareness, and of "cutting through static"...whatever that means on any given day; be it internal or external static. Actually, it's a reminder to me that "static on the inside = static on the outside", and when it's neutralized within there's no static without, just beautiful life reigns and a deeper, more expanded dimension permeates my experience of living...everything around me is...plush. When that happens my surroundings having a depth that's almost magical...or is it me? That's the amazing experience I have after participating in a community drumming circle where everyone is a kindred spirit. I did that with a friend this summer, I swear...there's something about drumming ...its rhythm vibrates within our bodies and surroundings and a force field of healing, protection, love and peace is everywhere! It is awesome! The power of drumming is a Cutting Edge...and a greater vibration lingers in its wake. Truly an amazing experience. I thank this mandala - #80 - for reminding me of that.
