Here are all the mandalas that went into the video I posted recently. I welcome you to download them and use them as an aid for meditation. The merkaba is a particularly powerful and simple mandala. The essence of the mandala is the point with the circle around it–the ineffable self. The two intersecting tetrahedron show the play of opposites, yin and yang, the dual aspects of the psyche or any situation. By seeing them in perfect harmony, we invite that harmony into our own psyche, or the situation we may be contemplating. Enjoy!
An assortment of photographs and mandalas to bring us back into the awareness of beauty, harmony, and the still point in the heart of the storm. Santa Cruz is a beautiful town, and all the little statues I find here have such an aliveness to them…
May the healing power of nature ebb through these photographs, may we all remember the solace that is to be found in trees, flowers, sunlight and rain. May all beings be happy and blessed.
The Star of David is a universal symbol for harmony, the integration of opposites, expanding and contracting forces in perfect equilibrium. It points to stillness in form, to the perfect beauty of consciousness, which is beyond tension and conflict. These images play with the six-fold symmetry of the Star of David in pulses, suggesting rhythm, movement, and sound.
This image transmits the feeling I get from sacred geometry. It feels like revelation in the most innocent and pure way. The beauty of sacred geometry is that it doesn’t have much to say. The same way a flower doesn’t have much to say. It opens for the bee, who instinctively draws out the nectar. It speaks in a language that is clear and pristine.
I feel that sacred geometry is the true higher learning. Really, it’s a sort of unlearning. Our modern world view is that life is a precarious balance which we must strive to maintain. Sacred geometry teaches that the essence of life is balance and harmony. Sacred geometry shows us the energetic blueprint which guides all of life in perfect fractal patterns. Contemplating these forms begins to dissolve the gap between the personal and the impersonal. Between emptiness and form.
