Musings from a New Hampshire Snow Day

Inspired by my post from a couple of weeks ago, my daughter asked to stop at our local nursery for some flower therapy.

She took lots of photos, but this one in particular blew me away.


If only I were a painter!

This morning I picked up Eckhart Tolle’s book, Oneness With All Life, which contains selections from his book, A New Earth, and as I like to do, flipped it open to a random page.  Here’s what I read:

Seeing beauty in a flower can awaken you, however briefly, to the beauty  that is an essential part of your innermost being, your true nature.  Joy and love are intrinsically connected to that recognition.  Flowers can become for us an expression in form of that which is most high, most sacred, and ultimately formless within ourselves.  Flowers, more fleeting, more ethereal, and more delicate than the plants out of which they emerge, are like messengers from another realm, like a bridge between the world of physical forms and the formless. They not only have a scent that is delicate and pleasing, but also bring a fragrance from the realm of spirit.”

Happy Friday and my this weekend bring you much rest and joy.
