A World in a Universal Drop of Water

 
A World in a Universal Drop of Water
 
 
 
As I reflected on this mandala it reminded me of looking at a drop of pond water
 
and seeing a whole invisible world brimming with life completely unaware of my existence. Am I the observer or the observed? The symbols also represent parts of me invisible yet living that I may not be aware of and there to discover. The passage that I love by William Blake came to my mind when I was reflecting on the mandala. (Fragments from “Auguries of Innocence” by William Blake
 
To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.
