- Jan 29, 2011Hi! I am inspired to post by my good friend Abanna whose birthday is today - Happy Birthday!!!
So this reminds me of a birthday of mine where I was handed a yellow iris by Guru and I have never felt so much power in a flower! I found this poem by Sri Chinmoy that totally describes it:
My mind will tell me
Only what others have taught it:
"A flower is beautiful."
But my heart feels and sees everything
As a new experience.
It may even discover tremendous power
Inside a tiny flower.
Then how can we say
That the heart is mistaken
When it tells us,
"A flower is powerful."
Excerpt from Twenty-Seven Thousand Aspiration-Plants, Part 19 #1886 by Sri Chinmoy
