Mandala Monday: moment to moment

Blue White May Mandala

“That nothing is static or fixed, that all is fleeting and impermanent, 

Blue and White May Mandala

is the first mark of existence.

Blue and White May Mandala (1)

It is the ordinary state of affairs.

Blue and White May Mandala (2)

Everything is in process. Everything—every tree, every blade of grass,

Blue and White May Mandala (3)all the animals, insects, human beings, buildings, the animate and the inanimate—

Blue and White May Mandala (5)

is always changing, moment to moment.” ~Pema Chrodron

  11. wow, everything is in full bloom in your mandala today! I read a book years ago called Living in Process. Excellent book. The words you wrote from Pema just reminded me of that.
    Have a wonderful day!

  14. Oh Dear Patty such words of wisdom but the wisdom comes from what lies behind the “words” which become more real as we face our own impermanency! Your mandala is so very beautiful – thank you so much! and thank you for your lovely visit to my garden of Autumn colours!
    Thank you for your kind healing thoughts of Andrea who will be coming home from hospital tomorrow we hope but then to face the hard next phase!
    Love and hugs,
    Suzy

  21. This is stunning. I considered joining this week, but all I have is food. And even though I looked at Dawn’s rules, it seems flowers prevail. I sure like what you did, though.
