lotus

A Quote by Patricia Cori on darkness, destiny, evolution, exquisite beauty, god, illumination, lotus, lotus flower, mud, recognise, and splendour

Like the lotus, you experience three primary stages of evolution. The first is marked by ignorance and darkness, when you lie below the dense mud - a closed chysalis - which, by nature of existence, will eventually be pulled upwards by the warmth of the Sun. The second is exemplified by the climb through the clouded waters of your emotional experience, yet still the flower reaches to the Sun, knowing no other destiny ... no other purpose. The third brings full illumination in the splendour of the light. The Lotus flower blossoms, baring its exquisite beauty to all those who are aware, enough to recognise God unfolding.

A Quote by Buddha Saying on independent, opinions, lotus, mud, stalk, peace, and world

The one who wanders independent in the world, free from opinions and viewpoints, does not grasp them and enter into disputations and arguments. As the lotus rises on its stalk unsoiled by the mud and the water, so the wise one speaks of peace and is unstained by the opinions of the world.

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on buddha, lotus, and water

As a lotus flower is born in
water, grows in water and rises out of water to stand above it
unsoiled, so I, born in the world, raised in the world having overcome
the world, live unsoiled by the world

Buddha (563 - 483 BC)

A Quote by Chandogya Upanishad on self, soul, conciousness, peace, light, love, lotus, brahman, heart, free, true, truth, and heaven

The Self is hidden in the lotus of the heart.
Those who see themselves in all the creatures go
day by day into the world of Brahman hidden
in the heart. Established in peace, they rise
above body consciousness to the supreme
light of the Self. Immortal, free from fear, this
Self is Brahman, called the True. Beyond the
mortal and the immortal, he binds both worlds
together. Those who know this live day after
day in heaven in this very life.

A Quote by Morrigan on waterlily, lotus, divine, and enlightenement

"A pristine waterlily undiscouraged by its surroundings, rises from the depths of a murky pond. It's lotus petals perfume the air, as it flowers and blooms brilliantly, purely, divinely, despite and probably because of its origins. Becoming a spiritual person does not mean you to leave your prior life behind, but instead you integrate, learn, remember, and respect what brought you to this point  in the first place."

A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on self-knowledge, soul, path, wisdom, purpose, mission, prophet, souls journey, and lotus

Say not, "I have found the truth," but rather, ”I have found a truth.”
Say not, "I have found the path of the soul."  Say rather, "I have met the soul walking upon my path."
For the soul walks upon all paths...
The soul unfolds itself, like a lotus of countless petals.

Kahlil Gibran (1883 - 1931)

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on desires, justice, water, lotus, overcome, sorrow, and drop

But when one masters this wretched desire, which is so hard to overcome, then one's sorrows just drop off, like a drop of water off a lotus.
