I used to hate flowers

Good Morning Dear Ones 🤍

I used to hate flowers! I know weird right?!? But it’s the truth! But they die and don’t last so why would I want them? That’s how I felt and that was my reasoning. I was like I’d rather have some new yoga pants they last forever,.

I know to some people that seems really silly, but to me it helps see how I’m always growing and learning. It’s only been in the last 2 weeks that I’ve changed my mind on the flowers.

As soon as I picked up a book by Thich Nhat Hanh called Touching Peace, I was forever transformed. I’ve taken this passage to ALL of my yoga classes this week because it’s been that profound on my soul.

We think the way we think, and we feel the way we feel, and we live our life asleep on auto pilot until one day we wake up. And I lie when I say one day we wake up. I should actually say, every single day for the rest of your life your going to have to wake up over and over again.

If you have no spiritual tools and no plans for your spirit it can’t grow. One must work hard to find the peace that lies inside all of us.

Wake up from the voices in your head. Wake up from the story you are telling yourself. Wake up from living the exact same life every year for the rest of your life. Wake up from being programmed and simply begin to explore new worlds of possibilities.

If you would like to dig deeper into yourself then this is for you. Transforming our compost made me love flowers again. It helped me understand the beauty before the death, and the connection between them both.

For one does not exist without the other.

Transformation of pain to love is exactly the same as flowers and compost. As yin and Yang, as good and bad, and black and white. You see we are nature ourselves, and we are ALL of things and none of things at the same time.

When I went to my moms house the other day she gave me some flowers, and instead of saying no thank you, I took them and made them beautiful.

As I watch the flowers return to compost I understand they will be on their way back to flowers 🌸 sooner then I could have ever imagined.
