When I was a youngster, I had a hard time with math. I especially found geometry boring, dry, and uninteresting. If high school geometry teachers had approached the subject in a way to show us how it related to the beauty of the universe, I might have been inspired to appreciate it differently.
Recently I read on Painter of Blue's most thoughtful blog, Art of the Spirit, When the mind engages with sacred geometry it is elevated and expanded in a particular way. It engages us without going through the feeling body. Much of western art is about emotion and the heart. It is a more Eastern approach to spirituality to travel to God through the Divine mind.
I know that the principles of sacred geometry are embedded in my mandalas inspired by nature. That is why you see cathedral windows in some of my work, because cathedral windows are based on these same mathematical formulas.
I have begun poking around looking for more information on this topic. What did we ever do before YouTube, anyway? I thought I would, over the next week or so, post some videos I have found on this most intriguing topic.
Enjoy. And let me know what you think.
