"When we look deeply into the heart of a flower, we see clouds, sunshine, minerals, time, the earth, and everything else in the cosmos in it. Without clouds there could be no rain, and without rain there would be no flower."
"People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us."
-- Iris Murdoch
I so agree with both of these. Go out and buy a couple of stems of fresh flowers. Or just pick a dandelion from your yard and put it in a tiny vase. Use it as a meditative support. Relish its existence.
