Zen of Two Flowers

If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.
Buddha

One thing I'm learning on this journey, is that every day is different and has its challenges. This weekend I went off some of my eating/practices and yesterday paid the cost. This a.m. I was doing a bit of beating myself up and yet trying to find some equilibrium. Not a good combination. I looked up and saw on my altar the two flowers I had placed there on Saturday. Suddenly I had my lesson:

flower is dying
open up your life's breath
flower now blooms

So in gratitude I bow to the universe for the teaching. Namaste.
