Mandala - Discovering Unity in the Cosmos.

The Universe is the indivisible Unity of all Existence. The Tao is the Essential Spirit of Nature in the Universe. The Mandala is a vision of the Unity within the Spirit, and a Sacred Diagram of our place in the vast Complexity of the Cosmos. Each of us is the center of the Mandala, and every center is a point of Focus, Stability and Peace. We carry the strength of that position within ourselves, although it seems we are not aware of it. We often feel lost, as if there were no right place for us, and we spend our lives searching for a way to belong. We are an Essential part of the Universe in all its Chaotic Splendor, connected to every point in the Totality of the Cosmos. Yet we seem blind to this Connection, so we spend our lives searching for a way, for a purpose, to reach that indefinable place where we can feel that we are part of something bigger than ourselves. But The truth is that we are linked, intimately and inextricably, to all the Wonder that surrounds us. The Reality that is so difficult to see, to understand, to believe, is that we already belong, that we are Connected, that we are one with the beautiful Spirit of the Universe.

The importance of the Goddess symbol for women cannot be overstressed. The image of the Goddess inspires us to see ourselves as divine, our bodies as sacred, the changing phases of our lives as holy, our aggression as healthy, and our anger as purifying. Through the Goddess, we can discover our strength, enlighten our minds, own our bodies, and celebrate our emotions. Mother Earth by ~CORinAZONe
