The Painted Vase 2


Sometimes life takes us around in the same circles. Where we questioned our ability to advance in life.

It feels like we have been going around the exact same block doing the same things. We notice, and at other times we fail to see it.

And the red hump was going around in circles; but, each time flourishing more and more. There were sentimental and intellectual elements that were occurring as the this red hump, that became clay and even now was being transformed into something marvelous that was taking place.

The little red hump had grown in stature. It had even had a color change once it was mixed with water. It was no longer that same hump. The things that transpired within had now started to show on the outside.

What was it about the way that the Potter was spinning this wheel and molding this clay that made an extreme difference?

Finally, after continuously going around on the Potter’s wheel in circles. This clay had gotten it shape and new look.

To be continued....
