Like my own Oklahoma gardens, which even on their best days are a bit on the wild side, my spirit is probably less orderly than most. Even at
37 I mean 25 I am still brimming with confusion and questions, still wandering a bit more than I would like some days.
Have you ever seen Mandala art? It is sometimes used as a form of meditation in the Hindu and Buddhist cultures. Not worship, just a physical activity, guided enough to be focused but certainly freeing enough to allow for all manner of expression and intepretation.
In reading more about fractals I remembered the mandala and cannot help but sense the common ground here. Maybe there is a cosmic message to be found regarding circular motion, patterns, and following that inarticulate voice.
And how interesting that a Christian writer used this global mainstay to help his readers visualize the human spirit. I think it is a beautiful use of imagination.
