A kaleidoscope is an optical instrument.

Kaleidoscopes are toys that always mesmerised us during our childhood.

As adults, we too enjoy the designs it creates.

Sir David Brewster of Scotland invented this instrument.

The term Kaleidoscope has originated by utilising Greek words…meaning ‘observer of beautiful forms’ (wonderpolis.org) also means, a changing and enjoyable mixture or pattern. (Cambridge Dictionary)

Do Kaleidoscopes remind you of anything?

Just think my friend.

Our lives remind us how things can change with in a blink of an eye!

“Life is like an ever-shifting kaleidoscope – a slight change and all patterns alter” Sharon Salzberg

  1. I always loved Kaleidoscopes and the amazing patterns they can make! Life or indeed the material realm is full of patterns or repetition! The “Sun Rises and the Sun Sets” over and over just like each of us go through our patterns or repetitive movements and motions whether out of necessity or our unique interests!

    To me the spiritual world or heaven is far beyond patterns as it is timeless and constant perfection, so nothing needs to change! Here in this realm we are prisoners in a sense of the laws of physics and time/space continuum; a temporary facade or condition like the ever changing Kaleidoscope! In my log essay that follows I will let the words of one of our most brilliant souls to have graced this planet with his deep thinking put this concept in perspective; who put it most astoundingly!

  2. Sometimes we only think that whole, complete, artistic things are beautiful. But, I believe that broken things are beautiful too, like all of the images through a kaleidoscope. All the little fragments, pictures unto themselves, falling into place to share their own version of a whole. Thank you for writing about this, my friend.
