Lotus Flower Symbol
The beautiful strong, and yet delicate, lotus flower is the perfect analogy for our growth as human beings.
Life begins with the roots growing deep into the mud at the bottom of a pond. There is a density and heaviness, just like our material or physical world.
As we grow and experience life, our thoughts come alive vibrating at a higher frequency than the physical body. This is the water where the stem reaches towards the light above.
Finally, the flower opens above the water's surface basking in the light and freedom of the open air.
This is our spiritual journey. To begin with the physical, mental, and at last enlightenment. Here you come to know ease and spiritual truth--the least dense of these three realms.
Today is the first day of the rest of your life!
