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.




Love Much,

Even people who know nothing of the long history and culture of the lotus are captivated by it. Its beauty has inspired and nourished people for thousands of years.

What's even more interesting is that it also provides food, clothing, medicine, a research tool, and much much more. The lotus is truly an amazing plant at all levels.
