beauty

IMG_3679

 

The lotus grows in the mud and mire,

yet blossoms into a beautiful flower,

unfolding its sparkling petals toward the sun.

May the lotus inspire us to nurture the beauty

of our own human consciousness.

Although it has no value,

beauty is an intrinsic quality of all things

because all things are interconnected.

The beauty of the sunrise is the beauty

of kindness is the beauty of the river

is the beauty of you yourself.
