This was a two day process. Yesterday while meditating I saw the 3-pointed celtic-like image. The rest came today while sketching out the entire mandala.
How easy is it for you to be off balance? For me, it usually takes a rude driver, eating dairy (lactose intolerant), too little sleep, or forgetting to stay centered and grounded.
Ever watch people who walk a high wire? They delicately balance themselves as they slowly and steadily walk across the wire. Rather than being rigid, they fluidly waver ever so slightly back and forth, constantly adjusting their balance with every step.
How many times have we declared we’re going to ____________ (fill in the goal) and then have a set back (loose our peace, eat that piece of cake, smoke one more cigarette, miss a deadline, etc.).
Forget about being hard on yourself for the misstep. Instead get back on the wire and keep moving forward. We’ll make better progress by doing a pattern of two steps forward and one step back than by stopping and giving up completely.
One of my favorite quotes of late is by Vernon Howard (www.anewlife.org) who said, “The single most important thing is for you to persist in spite of everything.”
Now go have fun coloring! 🙂
If the size of the file is a problem for you, let me know and I’ll make a smaller file version.
