Quest for the Center

Quest

My Being seems to be on a never-ending quest for something…

…something that it seems to be searching going round and round, taking on different hues…

…all the while not realizing that what it seeks can be found within itself…

…right at the Center –

The Center of My Being.

The Art of Rangoli is the ultimate dance form for me.

As my eyes follow the colorful lines curving through and around the perfectly spaced dots, my spirit soars… Dances in unison with the lines…

Dancing lines…

… and a splash of colors… The beauty of the Rangoli appeases my senses in more ways than one.

In fact, I feel it goes beyond the five senses and touches my soul.

As I gaze on and on at this amazing piece of creative art that is Rangoli, I am bathed in a glow of incredible peace and well-being.

The flowing lines and vibrant colors seem to have a therapeutic effect on me.

Is it the symmetry? Is it my penchant for order? The repeating patterns of lines and curves have a calming effect on my nerves…

The two sides of my brain – the left with its logical thinking and reasoning abilities, and the right with its intuitive abilities – seem to get balanced when I am creating, looking at Rangoli.

I feel centered, emotionally stable.

Rangoli, true to its meaning being associated with color and cheerfulness, with its symmetry and visual appeal, has a rejuvenating effect on me.

I am enamored by this Sacred Geometry, I am enraptured by this Divine Art of Rangoli.
