...for my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes. ~ Yoda (Star Wars)
Consider the function of vegetable roots and how they carry nutrients from the soil into the flesh of the plant and then we eat that flesh and it nourishes us. We are so connected to everything and the connection is, like Yoda reminds us here, the Force.
Part of why I love creating this mandala art is so I can transform the crude matter into luminous light. It's as simple yet as profound as that.
Bright blessings to you on your path!
