Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature.
~ Gerard De Nerval
I adore flowers and all that is found in nature. But especially flowers and trees. There is something so magical about them and their fragrance and ease in which they blossom captivates my heart.
The little prince speaks of his rose in the book, The Little Prince.
“People where you live,” the little prince said, “grow five thousand roses in one garden… yet they don’t find what they’re looking for…
They don’t find it,” I answered.
And yet what they’re looking for could be found in a single rose, or a little water…”
Of course,” I answered.
And the little prince added, “But eyes are blind. You have to look with the heart.”
-Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
To look with one’s heart is to see with the eyes of love and compassion. When we choose to look with only our eyes, at only the surface of any relationship or situation, we are blind. Blinded by reasons that don’t matter, by superficiality, by greed, by ego and perhaps even by dark emotions.
We all have a knowing inside, call it what you will – intuition, soul, self, innateness, whatever word you choose, but we know that in using our gifts, we connect with others and together we bring more love and light to our planet. One by one we emerge from the cocoon of ego reasoning to brighten the lives of the other roses whom we touch soul to soul, heart to heart, mind to mind. It is in making those connections that we find the beauty in the tender rose.
I wish you love and light as always. I pray you to see with your heart, shine your heartlight and know that you are love. Let your soul blossom and shower your loving presence into the world. Feel the gift of loving connections from all of us to all of you.
