Mandala of Healing – Pathways to the Divine. series 8. part 9. This great healing sojourn started way back in 2000. it was an offshoot from an earler Mandala exhibition-talk process that started around 1997. In 2000 the ” idea ” was given to me out of the blue to start a healing process using the structure of a 3d mandala as the focalpoint-doorway for spiritual healing communities to flow through to touch in some benificial way those in need. in both the local community around Roseville. Sydney and of cause those who were nominated for absent healings.
This series of 9 healing process’s really took on a life of their own. each meeting-gathering was different in content and quality. I just put the physical components together as a focal point for Greater Life to do what it does best.And that is to try and make itself known to those who have “Ears in their Hearts”. and are open to receive both physical and spiritual healings. I played no role in this healing process except installing the 3d mandala’s. Greater Life does all real healings via loving spiritual communities . which surround all of us when we are open to them in a real heart felt guesture of asking for help. those in need have to make the effort to ask for help in a personal prayeful way…….these sacred moments do not go unnoticed by Greater Life. we just need to ask in a humble way for help. and if we are truly focused on what we want and need it will be given.
Getting back to the process of “ideas”, now over the last 30 odd years or so. I have been given in vision and via what I called “Inner Ideas” all sorts of wonderful images, poetry etc etc. lots i have constructed into spiritual art-works via the mediums of Painting, sculptur, Printmaking, Photography, Drawings and this year. into Land Art. I have struggled with this concept-process of ” Inner Ideas “…..I usually just except the process given…..From where..?? and get on with doing –constructing it. showing it and then moving along to the next great idea given out of the “blue”…not really being able to describe where in came from in plain English to those who ask questions of Where..? Why…? How…? and can you prove it..? I usually just shrug my shoulders and say well it was given to me in vision or I just had a flash of an “Inner Idea” and leave it at that. I recently came across a wonderful piece written by my late teacher of the Great Work. Dr Philip Groves on the process ” Ideas ” in his writings dated 5/10/1992. quote
Ideas = are a psycho-cosmological instrument that transfers values from a higher level. It’s something that actually exists. Ideas stimulate thoughtsnbut are not thoughts, Idea = eidos =a pattern, form or structure = a presentation to our psyche. Ideas come from beyond us. and outside us. ideas are devices whereby things from one World enter things of this World. We think what what arises from self, comes from self–this is not true. There are values, meanings, energy and virtually inexhaustible content in Ideas. ideas will have a pattern or presentation in the psyche. Be offected by this concept of ideas. We need a relationship to ideas. Metanoia = is a new thinking about ideas. have a new feeling about ideas. Internal thought is saying ” What does this represent ? What does this correspond to ? What insight do I have ? end quote
Lots to ponder upon here, huge questions to put out there for all to share, Re-this above quote from Dr P Groves writings. it gives me foundations, structure and valuable insights into the where. the how and the why of this process Ideas …(for me Inner Ideas)…which are given to me to present and attempt to unfold over my time ahead and into Eternity and Beyond.
I have very much enjoyed putting these healing mandalas together over the last 7 years. but as with all things it has come to a physical end. now I need to draw up all the sacred mandalas, symbols etc etc given in vision during this sacred healing Sojourn through the mandala. then put it all together into a lovely bound a3 journal. hoping to complete this over the next 7 months. a big undertaking. but a fruitful one.
A few photos of the event held Sunday 17/9/17. in Roseville, Sydney. Enjoy.
