And the seed can not even believe it has the potential to become
a beautiful flower.
The road is long, and it is always safer not to go that route
because the route is unknown, nothing is guaranteed.
Nothing can be guaranteed.
Thousand and one are road hazards, many pitfalls - and the
seed is secure, hidden inside a hard shell.
But the seed tries, makes an effort, pull the hard shell which
its own security and begins to move.
Immediately the fight starts: the struggle with the land, 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 to the seed, the seed could have survived
for millennia, but for the outbreak the dangers are many.
But it still moving into the unknown, into the sun, toward
the light source, not knowing where, not knowing why.
Huge is the cross to be loaded, but the seed has a dream and
the seed moves.
The same path is for man.
Much Courage is required.
This chart shows a small wildflower that has met the challenge
of rocks and stones on its way to emerge into the daylight.
Surrounded by an aura of bright golden light, shows the majesty
of his little self.
Shameless, is equal to the brightest sun.
when we face a very difficult situation, we have a choice:
We can be angry and try to find something or someone to blame
for the difficulties, or we can meet the challenge and grow.
The flower shows us the way, how his passion for life, guides
it out from the darkness and into light.
There's no use fighting against the challenges of life, or try
to avoid them or deny them.
They are there, and if the seed will become a flower, we have
to get through.
Have the courage to become the flower that you have to be.
When you're alone, you're not miserable, you're just alone -
and there is a tremendous difference between loneliness and
When you are lonely you are thinking of the other, missing
Loneliness is a negative state.
You feel you'd be better if the other were there - your friend,
your wife, your mother, your beloved, your husband.
It would have been better if the other had been, but he is not.
Loneliness is the absence of the other.
Being alone is the presence of yourself.
Being alone is very positive.
It is a presence, overflowing presence.
You are so full of presence that you can fill the whole universe
with your presence and there is no need for anybody.
When there isn't a 'significant other' in our lives we can either
feel isolated, or enjoy the freedom that being alone brings.
When we find no support among others for our deeply felt truths,
we can either feel isolated and bitter, or celebrate the fact
that our vision is strong enough even to survive the powerful
human need for approval from family, friends or colleagues.
If you're facing this situation now, know how you are choosing
to view your privacy and take responsibility for the choice
The humble figure in this card shines a light from within.
One of the most important contributions of Gautama Buddha to
the spiritual life of mankind was to insist to his disciples,
'Be a light unto yourself.
' Essentially, each of us must develop within ourselves the
ability to find our way through the darkness with no company,
no maps or guides.
Life repeats itself without your attention - unless you notice
it, it will repeat like a wheel.
That is why Buddhists call it the wheel of life and death, the
wheel of time.
It moves like a wheel: birth is followed by death, death follows
birth, love is followed by hate, hate is followed by love,
success is followed by failure, failure, success follows.
Just watch! If you can see only for a few days, you'll emerge
a pattern, a circular pattern.
