REMEMBERING TO STOP AND SEE THE FLOWERS
If you hold up this picture of sunflowers really close all you can see is flowers.
Right now, try to imagine being surrounded by a sea of sunflowers.
All you see in any direction is sunflowers swaying in response to the changing breeze.
It s nice to begin a day by viewing flowers as they open to the sunrise.
Seeing flowers can remind us that everything is really a flower, an opening to an aspect of life.
A blooming flower exhibits the essence of that particular kind of flower.
An apple the essence of an apple tree, a tomato the essence of the tomato plant.
In the same way a table, a chair, a computer everything starts as the idea that was born in someone s mind and brought to reality.
The table is like a blooming flower of an idea (of a table).
Or actually the blooming of a seed of an idea in someone s mind.
Within the seed may be just an inkling, a wish or dream.
Seeing flowers is also a subconscious reminder of our own flower of life blossoming to life in this moment.
As we are right now is the flower of our life and dreams grown to this moment in time.
Flowers live short lives relative to the universe of things.
So do we;
Live Blossom Now.
