Just like the beautiful, pure lotus flower emerging from the muddy water

Just like the beautiful, pure lotus flower emerging from the murky, muddy water – there is value in everything that happens to you. Let it all inspire you to find your inner strength and use it as motivation to blossom into everything you desire to be.

Most people are afraid of suffering. But suffering is a kind of mud to help the lotus flower of happiness grow. There can be no lotus flower without the mud.” β€”Thich Nhat Hanh

    Through both joy and pain,
    we transcend grow and gain,
    The sky would nourish us with rain ,
    To feel the love and relive again ,
    So the sunshine we can obtain…
    Nothing would go in vain ,
    Higher levels of awareness to attain…

    I feel absolutely the same….muddy at times to make lotus blossom….if I don’t succeed, then I use that mud diffently….in the form of my poetry….this adds the nourishment of hope….that begins the process & transforms into the very lotus….thank you for your beautiful sharing ❀️
