Mandala Stone #18

Collective Unconscious

braid of memory
reaching back
all beginnings.

Diverse connective links
build bridges
across awareness,
always moving toward
deep inner knowing.

by time,
pushing past skin
of fragile
present moment,

unwinding secret path
to all that lies hidden
beneath swirling fog
of blue-green

  1. Oh one of my favorites…….the “ancient braid of memory”…..the “unwinding secret path”. And the image is so beautiful.

      This is a particular favorite of mine, and I don’t really know why. It has always spoken to me of the Collective Unconscious, and again, I don’t quite know the reason, but that’s unimportant I guess. Glad you like it Sherry, and again thanks for being here.



  2. Yes, I love this one! The ancient braid is so wonderful!

    Annell, it is awesome to think we are tied in some way to all beginnings. Glad you like it and are enjoying the Mandalas.
