The thought to get my own mandala has been floating in my mind for a while now. But why a mandala is what my mom would ask? A mandala has different meanings. It is a geometric figure and derives from Hindu and Buddhist symbolism representing the universe. It is also a symbol in a dream, representing the dream’s search for completeness and self unity. And that is exactly the path I am on. Life for me is just one big journey and I want to get everything out of it. I want to feel complete in a way that is not forceful. I am not too floaty, I barely mediate as it is just not my thing, I do ocean and surfing, I like theories, straight forward stuff. But I do believe that I have this one life, a life that needs to be lived and if I have hit speed bumps, pot holes or any other kind of obstacle that make this journey more difficult, I don’t want to ignore it. I want to make sure that I grab this era called “life” to overcome those obstacles. And that is why I want to have a mandala. it represents the journey I am on right now.
Luckily, I am blessed to have this amazing friend that is an incredible drawer. She works with a pen and points and with just some small directions she created this mandala for me. The result is really one of the most beautiful things I could carry with me for the rest of my life.
