Future generations hold a great responsibility on their shoulders. It is through their active participation and their courage to share what they think, feel and do... that I was inspired to color this little mandala, formed by four colors that represent something special to me, in the hope that it might bright up your day a little bit and motivate you to believe that the seeds that are being planted for our world's future will not be in vain.
First, the color purple. Imagination and spirituality. The color purple is said to help align oneself with the whole of the universe. In the hope that younger generations reflect on their spirit and rely on their creativity, I chose this color as the first color in this mandala.
Next, blue. No limits. The sky and the sea. I chose this color next since it is associated with freedom, intuition, sensitivity, and inspiration. I hope that future generations will try to be compassionate and that they will take into consideration the feelings of those who surround them before taking action.
Following blue, comes red. A bright color that represents power and courage. I also associate the color red with love. It is my hope that love will guide our thoughts and actions, to ensure a future world where peace is not a myth.
Finally, the color yellow. Sunshine, hope, and happiness. A final touch to wish you joy.
