Beauty in Diversity

people, art

“Just as a bouquet having flowers of different colors is more beautiful than a bouquet of flowers the same color, there is one Truth that shines through the rivers and mountains, flowers, the sun, moon and stars, you and I, are all expressions of this One Reality. It is by recognizing this truth in life that we can discover the inherent beauty in this diversity.”

—Amma

FLOWER CHILDREN

“All of us, children and adults, are beautiful flowers.  Our eyelids are exactly like rose petals, especially when our eyes are closed.  Our ears are like morning glories listening to the sound of birds.  Our lips form a beautiful flower every time we smile.  And our two hands are a lotus flower with five petals.  The practice is to keep our “flowerness” alive and present, not just for our own benefit but for the happiness of everyone.”

– Thich Nhat Hanh

The Magic Garden

 

“The sun is shining – the sun is shining. That is the magic. The flowers are growing – the roots are stirring. That is the magic. Being alive is the Magic – being strong is the Magic. The Magic is in me – the Magic is in me. . . It’s in every one of us.”

– Master Colin from The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett

“This is our function in each other’s lives: to hold the space for each other’s beauty, that our beloved can leave us and we will feel in his (or her) absence how beautiful we are.”

—Marianne Williamson, from “A Woman’s Worth” quoted in “The Heron Dance Book of Love and Gratitude.”
