Hi I'm Jade Alyssa ♥
Sand mandala at Thikse Monastery, Ladakh, India.
Imagine sighing after finishing a detail and it blows out everything you’ve done
That’s basically what these monks do actually.
They create such intricate mandalas to demonstrate the beauty and the fullness of life then blow it all away without a seconds thought to teach us the impermance of life and the “transitory nature of material things”.
Bear in mind that this is a very basic and shallow understanding of the very nuanced and meticulous rituals that surround these sand mandalas.

Sharks are one of the most feared creatures of the sea. Scare away the boogeyman by using this shark fin lamp as a night light. Found on Behance.
A full moon, crafted out of rainbow moonstone, rests in the branches of this tree pendant. The tree is created using wire-wrapping techniques with high-quality silver wire. Hung on an 18” silver-plated chain. Sold on Etsy.

I can’t not reblog this.
This is the best thing on the Internet. We undress everyday and it shows us how confined we are. Those imprints show how uncomfortable we are throughout each day just to impress other people. We create prisons in our own clothes. We are a prisoner in a socially constructed idea of what is beautiful.
