I love kaleidoscopes, a simple toy fitted with mirrors and a few odds and ends that when you turn it in the light, creates an infinite number of beautiful perspectives.
The beauty of a kaleidoscope is not in the amazing image that is created in the moment – it is that as soon as that kaleidoscopic wonder disappears, another amazing image will form in its place. Followed by another and another, for as long as you want to play.
I think of kaleidoscopes when I think of growing consciousness – becoming aware of another beautiful perspective in its impermanence and consistency. They are a reminder to take myself lightly, to trust and to play.
