On my birthday, Elliot and I took a ride to the orchid farm to try out my new camera. The coi fish pond was brimming with delicate purple lotus flowers.
Beyond the soulfulness of pure saturated light and color,
as best seen in the myriad flowered faces of Nature,
is the beautiful face of God
smiling down in blessing upon us.
I had forgotten that another name for a lotus is a sea rose. A lotus symbolizes divine birth, purity, an opening to greater spiritual awareness. The unfolding petals suggest an expansion of the soul. Lotus bring the message that higher knowledge is available if we choose to open up to it. This flower alerts us to a newer vision that will be unfolding soon.
While rooted in the mud, its flowers bloom on tall stems that make it appear as though the lotus is floating above the dirty waters of attachment and desires. Drops of water easily slide off its beautiful petals, also symbolizing detachment.
Enjoy your day with the Angels.
Love and peace,
