Today’s Mandala Message: Awareness as to what is stopping us and what can help us move forward is half the journey. Taking positive action on both is the other half.
I’m finishing up with Principles #9 and #10 from Jack Canfield’s “The Success Principles” entitled “Success Leaves Clues” and “Release the Brakes” respectively. Today I set my intention to focus on both principles in general. I let the mandala guide me to the color choices. Now that I look at it, I sense that the pink/purple sections represent #9…they look like arrows pointing us in directions we can go. The green/grey sections represent #10; the grey symbolizing the brakes, the green symbolizing “go!”. The yellow/gold sections symbolize the treasures that awaits us when we release the brakes and follow the clues.
So how about you? How much are you aware of what’s internally stopping you? Are you open to following the clues to forward movement? Are you open to going in a different direction?
“Truth, like gold,— Leo Tolstoy
is to be obtained
not by its growth,
but by washing away from it
all that is not gold.
