Intimacy of a flower

2016-05-08 19.12.03-2

I love this deep look into a flower, as if it opens up its heart, intimately, to the world and most people just pass by. Does a flower need admiration? I do not think so. Yet those who stop to admire it are enriched; beauty washes over them.

It seems, however, that flower is happy just by being a flower, regardless of whether its beauty is externally affirmed or not. When we do notice it, it is as if it wants to remind us – you too are beautiful, you too can enrich the world, if you but share whatever is deepest within you heart. If you but open up to the world, as I have, you too will blossom into the fullness of life.
