One of my fellow Goddesses, Poseidon’s Muse, blessed me with a wonderful and very thoughtful gift. She created a Lotus of Light for me to add to my sidebar (and as soon as I figure out how, it will be added. ) I wanted to thank her publicly and let her know how her seemingly simple gift is touching me.
I fell in love with some orange bowls Monday at a thrift store but was unwilling to part with the $20. (I’m cheap). These silly bowls have been on my mind ever since. I put in the description on google and found the bowls.
I discovered that they are vintage Cathrine Holm and selling for quite a bit on Ebay. And guess what the pattern is called? ” LOTUS” My wonderful hubby went back to the store after lunch and picked them up for me.
So until today, I have never given any thought to the Lotus flower and now I’ve been touched by it twice. I decided the universe is trying to tell me something and I looked up the meaning.
“The lotus flower is one of the most ancient and deepest symbols of our planet.
The lotus flower grows in muddy water and rises above the surface to bloom with remarkable beauty. At night the flower closes and sinks underwater, at dawn it rises and opens again. Untouched by the impurity, lotus symbolizes the purity of heart and mind. The lotus flower represents long life, health, honor and good luck.”
So the lotus starts with it’s roots in the mud, but manages to climb out of the mire and blossom into a breathtakingly beautiful flower. I like that!
Thanks Universe and thanks PM!!!
