Life is like a mandala

“Each person’s life is like a mandala—a vast, limitless circle. We stand in the center of our own circle, and everything we see, hear and think forms the mandala of our life.” ~Pema Chödrön

There are many things in life that we have no control over, but we have more choice about what we focus on and what we spend our time seeing, hearing, and thinking than we often imagine. If these are forming the mandala of our life, we would do well to pay more attention to what we choose to let in. Those choices create our life.
