When you sit still with this flower, one that has surpassed human evolution, existed longer on this planet than us, and you stare into its roots, its essence becomes more evident, and this clarity connects you deeper to your own truth: you are the lotus. You are more than what you can see, than what you can perceive with your five senses. Just by simply being alive now, without your descriptors, without time to define you, you tap into this level of consciousness where time and death do not exist. Everything is beauty. Everything is alive. Nothing is fragmented. Everything is Love. This is the enlightened feeling Oneness. Your intelligence is fully capable of this recognition and appreciation, Now. You only need to be aware.
