This one I colored using Dry Erasable Board Markers and regular color markers. The title comes from the book The Fifth Mountain (by Paulo Coelho) that I was re-reading at the time when I colored this mandala. As mentioned in one of my earlier posts, it is my most favorite book of all time. The book talks about the unavoidable and the growth.
The idea of the unavoidable in one’s life and the possibility of growth as a result is quite powerful. It is unavoidable for the flower to leave the state of a seed. But this unavoidable results in its growth into a beautiful flower. I am a risk averse person (on most occasions). Given a chance, I’d avoid taking any risks as it may lead to change inevitably. However, sometimes, risk and change are unavoidable. The only option, or the best option, in such a case is to accept the unavoidable and use it for growth – personal, professional, family, community, etc.
