Mandala yoga mat with grip: The Seed is Planted.
The yoga mat with grip titled “The Seed is Planted” is about the beginning. Everything starts with an idea, a conversation, a seed. Once that seed is planted, creation begins, whether it’s a project, a report for work, a book, a painting, a home, a family. It all begins with a simple thought, act, or seed.
Mandala yoga mat with grip: And So It Grows Expansion and Creation – Tapestry
Once creation begins, there is no stopping it. Expansion begins immediately and takes on the form or essence of the seed that was planting. A tiny seed becomes a large apple tree because the instructions to expand and grow were within the seed. This mandala yoga mat depicts the essence of water and the creations within.
Mandala yoga mat with grip: It Takes All Kinds – The Universal Need to Express
As we being to grow, we need to express. As anything begins to grow it needs to express. The small daisy bud becomes a flower. A baby grows to be a child, teen, then adult. An idea becomes a journal entry, then a painting, book, blog post… Everything in the universe has a desire to express, to shine the inner light of its essence. This mandala mat with grip is popular with kids and adults!
Mandala yoga mat with grip: Self Actualization – The Universal Need to Evolve
All of creation is evolutionary. Once something begins to express itself, it needs to evolve. Perhaps part of it is to remain alive, for survival. In human beings, it seems to be that evolution is necessary to truly express one’s essence. This mandala yoga mat with grip has symbols and colors that evoke evolutionary thought.
Mandala yoga mat with grip: The Circle Of Life: Relationships
“No man is an island” is a famous quote we’ve all heard (John Donne 1572-1631). Some of us may think we are, however, there is no escaping the fact that we belong to one race – the human race. What happens to each of us individually affects everyone around us in profound and subtle ways. This mandala represents how we progress from the relationships we are born into to (the small white flower in the middle), and expanding and reaching other people and groups of people (school, friends, places of worship, neighborhoods). All relationships affect other relationships in obvious and not so obvious ways. We are always connected in some way to everyone we have ever met.
Mandala yoga mat with grip: Co-Creation – Contracts are Made
Everything is dependent upon everything. We are all interconnected. As we evolve we make contracts with those who are on our path. Some are sacred contracts we make with others to help along our path of evolution. This mandala yoga mat depicts the indigenous story of snakes shedding their skin as they evolve and grow.
Mandala yoga mat with grip: Grace and Ease – The Art of Allowing
There is a benevolent force in the Universe. While life and creation may seem chaotic, there is a flow, a purpose for everything. When that flow, that power, is tapped into, there is an experience of grace, of ease. We can witness it in nature. This is my favorite of all my mandala yoga mats. A mandala in the clouds.
Mandala yoga mat with grip: Ever Changing – Always Changing
The only thing we know for sure is that things change. Everything changes. Change is beautiful. It’s what gives us the seasons. Our emotions go from happy to sad, angry to compassionate. This makes for a beautiful spectrum of balance and harmony. This mandala yoga mat with grip evokes the natural change of the seasons, which helps you remember that change IS natural and evokes feelings of calmness.
