Even In Murky Waters, the #Lotus Blooms #repost #inspiration #Saturdaythoughtsby Ellen DuBois on 07/14/18
I thought of this saying while looking at this picture. I took it a few days ago and as you can see, the water is very murky. We've been in quite a severe drought here in Massachusetts. Actually, I don't recall ever having this little rain.
Look at the beautiful, pink lotus blooming in the midst of all that green, murky water. Beauty and life appear where you wouldn't think it possible. As a matter of fact, my eyes were so focused on the color of the water, I only saw the lotus after my best friend pointed it out.
Life can be a lot like that. We are what we focus on. We see what we focus on. Rather than giving all my attention to the sorry state of the water, I chose to focus my attention, and my camera, on the soft, gentle beauty of that one, pink lotus.
We all have the capacity to bloom, even in troubled times. We all are capable beings able to not only see, but BE the light in the darkness.
Even in Murky Waters, The Lotus Blooms.
