Ultimate paradox: When you focus on the giving, you get so much more.
“Living in the present moment is living free of the burden of the personality.”
I chose this quote from Tolle and then I found this beautiful photo on unsplash.com. I looked up the name of the photographer to give credit…
“Instead of seeking liberation in some future moment, realize that the “limitations” you are experiencing right now are openings into presence…into space. When you surrender to that, you are rooted into the formless and deep peace.
Nothing in the world of form matters that much.”
The yellow poppy symbolizes wealth. This is due, in part, to a legend:
“It’s mainly due to some legends and stories that these meanings were attached to the flower. According to a Greek legend, the poppy was the creation of the god of sleep. Helping the goddess of corn when she lost her daughter, the poppies were used to sooth her to sleep.
If she rested the corn grew and because she fell asleep, the corn started to grow again. It’s viewed that the poppies are essential to the growth of corn. Corn is more than food but also a source of income. That’s why yellow poppies mean wealth.”
“The difference between a flower and a weed is a judgement.”
