NASH FLASH

Motive is EVERYTHING.

Prior to taking any action of significance, be quite sure that you know why you are doing it.

If you are hoping or praying for something to happen, be very clear about why this is so important to you.

The underlying motive WILL prevail.

  1. Hi Laura:

    I like this mandala…I would love an explanation of mandalas. I believe in what you wrote…Motive…the “Y” behind action….right now I am in flux but in a good way….the motivation:creating a life for myself outside of parenting. I am trying to create a career for myself. I will be moving within the year to an apt in Jersey City. I will have a new job. I will be happy. Visualization will make it real

    Much love

    Sandy

    • WHAT IS A MANDALA?
      fom wikipedia:
      Mandala (Sanskrit maṇḍala “essence” + “having” or “containing”, also translates as “circle-circumference” or “completion”, both derived from the Tibetan term dkyil khor) is a concentric diagram having spiritual and ritual significance in both Buddhism and Hinduism.[1][2] The term is of Hindu origin and appears in the Rig Veda as the name of the sections of the work, but is also used in other Indian religions, particularly Buddhism. In the Tibetan branch of Vajrayana Buddhism, mandalas have been developed into sandpainting. They are also a key part of anuttarayoga tantra meditation practices.
      In various spiritual traditions, mandalas may be employed for focusing attention of aspirants and adepts; as a spiritual teaching tool; for establishing a sacred space; and as an aid to meditation and trance induction. According to David Fontana, its symbolic nature can help one “to access progressively deeper levels of the unconscious, ultimately assisting the meditator to experience a mystical sense of oneness with the ultimate unity from which the cosmos in all its manifold forms arises.” [3] The psychoanalyst Carl Jung saw the mandala as “a representation of the unconscious self,”[4] and believed his paintings of mandalas enabled him to identify emotional disorders and work towards wholeness in personality.[5]
      In common use, mandala has become a generic term for any plan, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically, a microcosm of the Universe from the human perspective.[citation needed]
