Flowers and Weeds

A flower falls, even though we love it; and a weed grows, even though we do not love it.

Great quote.

Truly a great way to articulate the principle of equanimity and why it's the only way to embrace a world of impermanence and ambiguity.

Peace to you, James.

Dharmasattva:

Yeah I thought it was a good one too.

And yes, it is a great way to put forth the principle of balance and interdependency.

I have a deeper appreciationg and understanding everyday for the the great jewel of the Dharma.

Peace to you as well friend.

I love weeds too. They have their purpose as everything does. They aren't "good" or "bad." :)

Blessings to you.
