Countless petals

The lotus in the fishpond outside of my classroom bloomed today.  A mythical bloom, straight out of Vishnu's belly button and into the new world unfolding from and around me.

I cannot resist.  I'm going to share a picture of our local lotus.

Say not, "I have found the truth," but rather, "I have found a truth." 
Say not, "I have found the path of the soul." Say rather, " I have met the soul walking upon my path." 
For the soul walks upon all paths....

The soul unfolds itself, like a lotus of countless petals.

Kahlil Gibran (1883 - 1931)
