3-13-17 – “Stepping Down”
I absolutely love this piece looking back on it at a different time. When I created it, as with most that I create, I become dissatisfied midway through, doubting my abilities, doubting my connection. Recently, I had read a book that covered some of Carl Jungs’ observations of mandalas. When a clockwise motion is seen, it usually indicated movement towards the conscious mind, the latter, left, moving towards the unconscious mind. I am aware of an opportunity for growth within myself in that I feel stupid doing something if its not really that good, or if people are better at something than I am. No competitive sports were played when I was a child, maybe I need to get some of that out. I had decided that this mandala would be my very last, however looking back now maybe it was signaling an ending of another kind.
