23-04 “Alert”

Download to Color Section 02 of the 2023 Mandala of the Year

Continuing with honoring the Chinese Year of the Rabbit which started on January 22, Section 2 of the 2023 Mandala of the Year is now available. This month’s characteristic associated with Rabbit energy is “alert”.

BTW: It may seem like, that so far, all of these sections look the same. Granted they are similar and yet I assure you as the months go by, the full scope of this mandala will make itself known to you. Hang in there.

When we think of being alert as being alert for danger. It’s a valuable instinct. However in this section’s case, we mean being alert to opportunities. It means to pay attention to the signs all around us that lead us towards the opportunities that support the manifestation of our dreams. Our challenge becomes being open to how these opportunities shows up. If we think they can only come one way for us, we’ll likely miss out on all the other possibilities that our limited thinking may keep us from seeing.

So be alert, be present, and trust that the opportunities are already on their way.

“When you wash your hands,
when you make a cup of coffee,
when you’re waiting for the elevator
– instead of indulging in thinking,
these are all opportunities
for being there
as a still, alert presence.”

— Eckhart Tolle
