Teaching mandala meditation

I had several students today come take my mandala meditation class.  We made mandalas and meditated on them.  It was beautiful to see how it came out. 

This picture is of my mandala.  It shows the center point, an eye.  When you meditate on a mandala, you try to focus on the center point of the image.  We sat for five minutes staring at our mandalas on the wall. 

I saw my grandmother's blue eyes in this mandala.  I saw the eye looked like it had something important to say.  And then it looked like it was simply exhausted. 

I took it as grandma telling me to slow down a bit.  Take life as it comes.  Be a little less serious about changing the world for the better.  Maybe the world gets better- maybe not.  But it does not hinge on what I do.

Then I noticed my mandala is a little off-center and looks like a patch, the way I colored it with pens mostly.  It has a woven quality.  It strikes me as looking very strong.  Maybe a little bit misfitted, but significantly strong. 

With mandala meditation, you work with it every day- coloring it in, adding to it, meditating on it (maybe you could call it "listening" to it), and journaling about what it tells you each day.  I will keep you updated...

By changing the sealing methods, packaging technology also can be used to form continuous paper and fabric product containters actually.

Everyone for their behavior should bear full responsibility onto others you do not use, you can not afford to push, who would not carry it for you.

But the tablet screen's review edge is rather narrow and the battery runs out rapidly. Moreover, you might get a 10 -inches tablet for less than $100 more. The Acer Iconia Tab A100 offers a full Honeycomb experience on a 7-inches tablet , but the way that a more imposing Honeycomb tablet is less than $100 off sours the bargain.
