The more we love ourselves by doing what we love, the more we grow consciously... then forgiveness of others just becomes a ritual to follow. The past will fade by the time we start by loving ourselves, the present will become more beautiful and the future will become brighter and brighter. The whole universe becomes one when we love ourselves.
In this painting, the Mandala is a representation of the Universe and the tree symbolises inner growth. The more we grow in self-love the stronger our roots become.
