Just take a look at Nature! it has never happened before! it has never happened that one of the nature’s most beautiful creation has trouble in blooming!
In nature Rose flower seed yields blooms into Rose!, Lotus seed blossoms into beautiful Lotus flower. every potential seed becomes it’s destined flower.
Look at Man!
In essential Man is nothing but a Buddha, a Jesus, a Mohammad.
But he can bloom into Hitler, Osama, Saddam,
your misery in life is nothing but you longing to bloom into a flower,
Your pain in life is nothing but unknown calling of awareness,
It does’t matter how succesful you are going to be in terms of Materialstic goals, platonic relationships,
you still need inner Romance,
Inner lover affair,
you are butterfly in need of metamorphosis,
Till then you remain a seed unfulfilled your potential,
Essentially, you are a Buddha. In the seed you are a Buddha, a Jesus, a Mohammad but in the seed you are imprisoned. Let the seed be broken, let it be shattered into the soil so that roses can start growing within you. A man of consciousness becomes a garden of roses. One of the ancient tarot card on courage says as follows.
Nothing can be guaranteed. Thousand and one are the hazards of the journey, many are the pitfalls – and the seed is secure, hidden inside a hard core. But the seed tries, it makes an effort; it drops the hard shell which is its security, it starts moving. Immediately the fight starts: the struggle with the soil, with the stones, with the rocks. And the seed was very hard and the sprout will be very, very soft and dangers will be many.
There was no danger for the seed, the seed could have survived for millennia, but for the sprout many are the dangers. But the sprout starts towards the unknown, towards the sun, towards the source of light, not knowing where, not knowing why. Great is the cross to be carried, but a dream possesses the seed and the seed moves.
The same is the path for man. It is arduous. Much courage will be needed
you need to gather courage, and this courage means disappearing into the soil, losing yourself in complete let-go. Losing ego , losing thought occupied mind.
Meditation is nothing gardening your potential. Meditation is nothing but creating a ecosystem to realize your potential.
