The surrounding circle, or mandala, represents the emergence of intense personal growth and transformation. The center of the mandala exists so that we can circle around it and return to it again and again with intention throughout our process of creation. This is paramount when writing a book. If someone has a strong sense of purpose for writing their story, then they will keep coming back to that purpose, their why, and push forward in creating their book. The mandala represents creativity with purpose, a vision and focal point to bring forth something new to the world. It is a symbol of connection, wholeness, and completeness—a powerful expression of self.
