the only truth I know is my own experience

Fragrance May 17, 2009

You have seen how a flower shakes off all that is not needed, blooms out, pierces its head outwards, opens out just to give fragrance to others.

If you want to give fragrance to others, how far is there fragrance within you?  Is there fragrance within you that you are going to give fragrance to others?

Learning from flowers April 11, 2009

I met a florist lady who told me the one interesting observation of hers.

Flowers for sale are being picked up at their baby-stage, as buds.

They they are being treated with chemicals for the transportation.

Then they fly over the ocean from Latin America to Europe, being pressed in boxes.

Then they have to wait till the best price will be given for them at the auction – to be again several times transported to their final destination.

The whole time form the pick up till the final sale they are not allowed to bloom, and have to be kept in a hard condition.

And finally, when the flowers land at our warm homes, they open up and give and give and give their fragrance, beauty and joy to everyone! How much power of life and love they posses that after all that treatments they still make people happy!..

I just thought this might be a nice story to tell, because of the obvious comaprission with human being: people with beautiful souls are often compered to flowers – even if they suffer a lot, their power of love is still there to spread beauty and joy around!

And I strongly believe that everyone is such a flower.

LOVE,
