“Excellence implies striving for the highest standards in every phase of life.”
— John W. Gardner
“You cannot move on to a new phase in life if you bring your old baggage with you, let the bad go, and move onto the new.”
— Patrick Read Johnson
“Learn to appreciate the caterpillar and the whole process of metamorphosis! The beauty and lightness of the butterfly only exist after going through these phases.”
— Karina Fonseca Azevedo
This week’s MotW reminds us that all through life we go through phases, one phase leading into another. Our challenge becomes appreciating each and every one of them for they are what brought us to where we are today. We are especially encouraged to embrace our current phase…and it is a phase…know that it will eventually lead us to another and then another, whether on this realm or the next.

My Mission: connecting with our Inner Light in delightful, inspiring ways
For me, creating mandalas is more than just coloring pretty patterns in a circle. I do it because my spiritual evolution and creativity require it of me. My mandala designs come about within an active meditative state, connected with my higher self, my spiritual guides and nature spirits.
Together, we bring into form, mandala art the allows me to re-connect with my own inner peace and joy, letting me explore and expand my own creative spirit to however far and in whatever direction I want to take it.
As part of my own spiritual journey, I encourage, and hopefully inspire, others to explore their own creativity, to help them re-connect with their own inner peace and joy. As a means to that end, I make all of my mandalas available for people to color. Why should I have all the fun?
