When admiring the beauty of a flower, it's hard to imagine how something so beautiful could grow from a small hard seed or an ugly onion-like tuber. The mystery of becoming is hidden, but the innate potential is alive. If you've ever worked with plants, you know that you have no control over the results. You can only do your best to provide the necessary ingredients: water, sunshine, fertilizer. But ultimately an invisible energy that I call Divine Love unfolds the petals.
Sometimes we humans have a strong need to control, judging and forcing issues in an attempt to get our way. But do we really know what's best? There is an old lesson--never force an issue; but learn the art of allowing, know that an Infinite Divine Intelligence is orchestrating the entire universe.
Christ told his followers not to worry. "Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow. They neither toil nor spin, but I tell you, not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these." The message is that God provides far better than we can imagine when we let Him. It's important to do the preparation work, to till the ground, etc. but then step back and let Him lead. Angel messages, thoughts of pure intuition will guide as to what steps we may need to take next.
The lily is a flower of new birth. Something wonderful is dawning within each of us, an awakening to a new vision. The Angels encourage us to be like a lily, surrender and let it happen in joy.
Love and joyful blessings,
