22-248 Color

Today’s Mandala
Color

“I found I could say things
with color and shapes
that I couldn’t say any other way
– things I had no words for.”

— Georgia O’Keefe

“Sketching is almost everything.
It is the painter’s identity,
…style, …conviction,
and then color
is just a gift to the drawing.”

— Fernando Botero

“Try to forget
what objects you have before you
– a tree, a house, a field, or whatever.
Merely think,
‘Here is a little square of blue,
here an oblong of pink,
here a streak of yellow,’
and paint it just as it looks to you,
the exact color and shape,
until it gives you
your own impression
of the scene before you.”

— Claude Monet

Today’s MotD inspires us to color our world with love and light as a way to raise the Earth’s vibration. From the perspective of storytelling, one of two things continuously happen throughout: an action and some color. The action moves the story along: “Lightning struck the house”. The color adds description, depth, and dimension to the action: “Lightning struck the house. Five generations of the Smith family lived and died in that old farm house.”

As a noun, one definition of color from the Oxford Dictionary: “the property possessed by an object of producing different sensations on the eye as a result of the way the object reflects or emits light.” As a verb, one definition of color from the Oxford Dictionary: “make vivid or picturesque”.

Our challenge becomes coloring our world in such a way that reflects our Inner Light and enhances, inspires, and enlightens the way others experience the world, thereby giving others the permission to color the world with their Inner Light.
