The beauty of life:
The Lilies and Roses are blooming now. Dahlias are at the end of cycle of springs, which started with Marigold. Rose plant and Lilies had me worried. During winters, these plants went in hibernation type recluse. I was wondering. We did have few other winter casualties like dried expiry of oldest holy basil plant. However Lilies are blooming again.
The flower and plants are real Guru, rest are all fraud. If only we learn to lay dormant without action like Lilies and Roses, we can save ourselves from a lot of trouble.
We falsely interpret scriptures to justify actions when none is required.
Flowers bloom without any fear of withering or of afterlife. Three children of Holy Basil survived without even crying for the mother Basil who could pass away unencumbered. It is not that plants do not feel or respond. They heal with affectionate touch and recluse into pondering if left alone. Plants rooted to ground get less lonely than those in pots.
It appears the plants do not need flowering of life. The come prepared with flowering as well as bloom. Completely prepared for doom. Be it winter or summer. Knowledge untrammelled and untarnished by intelligence. Pure Beauty. The beauty of life.
