It all starts with a dream, with a vision, hope and desire… Look inside your heart and soul and see if you have one hanging out in there… Now imagine its a seed… think of the most fertile, black, rich soil and carefully plant that seed with love and positive intention…. Focus on nourishing that seed until it blossoms… and sprouts.
There is a blossom… what will you do with it? Will you nourish it, and continue to feed it, or will you be happy that you had a sprout blossom and walk away and be done….? There is a choice?
With water and nourishment the blossom sprouts and soon there is a beautiful flower… a rose… on the rose there are many thorns. A hard firm stem filled with thorns, but if you can look past the hardness and the thorns there is a beautiful, delicate flower with many soft fragrant petals….You know that in order to get to that beautiful soft flower, you have to take that hard stem, and step on many thorns… but you can bare them, the beauty of the rose is lightening the path of the hard stem and the pricking pain of each thorn.
There is a choice again.. to throw away the rose because of the thorns… or to see the beauty and softness of the flower and reach for it…..
At the top you find yourself sitting on the rose and along comes a BEE… You see the bee and you feel that old familiar feeling… fear. Will the Bee take the nectar from the flower?? (you feel the beauty of the flower and dont want to lose that). Will the BEE sting??? SO many thoughts go through your mind. The programming is there to reject the BEE to fight it, but it only makes for AN ANGRY BEE… where someone will surely get stung… and you are the one on the flower…
Instead you decide to resist your programming.. You welcome the bee… you say hello and watch quitely as the bee takes sweet nectar from your beautiful soft flower… and the bee flies away… The flower is still there… and you are not stung or in pain….
You’re thankful for the climb up the hard stem with thorns, your thankful for the flower, and for the bee for not stinging you, thankful for yourself for not reacting… and your thankful you still have the beautiful softness of this beautiful flower… and now you’re thankful because…
You have HONEY….
Life is SWEET.. a gift…. if we chose to see it that way….
