Be Like a Flower…

Our New England winter this past year was harsh… bitter… unrelenting… damaging.  It is perhaps because of this that Spring feels oh-so-much sweeter this year and I find myself reflecting on these words from Osho*:


Look at the trees, look at the birds, look at the clouds, look at the stars… and if you have eyes you will be able to see that the whole existence is joyful.  Everything is simply happy.  Trees are happy for no reason; they are not going to become prime ministers or presidents and they are not going to become rich and they will never have any bank balance.  Look at the flowers – for no reason.  It is simply unbelievable how happy flowers are.  ~Osho


Enjoy these precious days, my friends, and relish the simple joy.


*Osho was an Indian mystic and, while I do not agree with his religious views, I believe there is much truth in his words above!
