Do you remember, as a child, ever having
looked through the lens of a kaleidoscope,
and being amazed at the pretty colours and
patterns that you saw in it?
I do, and I remember with fascination
the patterns that did not collapse on itself.
Only when tilted or shaken did new patterns form.
To me it was magic, and I tucked it away
somewhere in my memory.
Years later, I became interested in the subject of wholeness and read many books on mental and emotional healing, physical health and spiritual well-being. Creativity is a stepping stone toward wholeness, and I found that writing was an expression of my kind of creativity. I attended a writing course – and the mentor made us write something everyday.
So a collection of writings came into being, that I have recently re-discovered, re-read, and before re-discarding them ! – for I am an hoarder at heart – would like to share, from time to time, with you.
I have said all that to say this. Here is my writing on wholeness. I hope it makes sense, but understand it as though looking through a kaleidoscope !
FRAGMENTS OF WHOLENESS
Our lives are made up of many parts,
a kaleidoscope of parts, and patterns and colours. |
Colours that catch the light,
when turned in the prism of life.
Often the pieces will fall separately together
and lie randomly in part,
forming a picture in itself.
Other times we measure them to fit in the right places
connecting them purposefully
for reasons of our own.
Taken as a whole,
we see that we are made up of different parts
When life tilts at our securities
we tend to change the patterns
When we look carefully
we will discover the patterns we become
when weaved unintentionally.
Best of all is to know
that we are what we are
from the different parts we play,
to understand and to accept
the fragments of the whole.
