begin with stillness
begin with stillness...those words caught my eye yesterday, and sank deeply into my psyche. that's how i feel each time i begin a new mandala...i find the center point...the still point. i begin with stillness. everything flows from there.
stillness...your world could be going to hell in a handbasket, whirling - spinning - out of control, and yet you can still right yourself, find your center, "begin with stillness" in the midst of it all.
that's the magic of the mandala - to draw a circle - a boundary - a buffer between you and everything not you.
to find the center...your center...to drop down deep inside yourself to where everything is calm and peaceful...and still...and go from there.
begin with stillness.
