…look upon flowers as the enlightenment of plants.
Any life-form in any realm – mineral, vegetable, animal or human – can be said to undergo “enlightenment.” It is, however, an extremely rare occurrence since it is more than an evolutionary progression: It implies a discontinuity in its development, a leap to an entirely different level of Being and, most important, a lessening of materiality.
Since time immemorial, flowers, crystals, precious stones, and birds have held special significance for the human spirit … attributed to their ethereal quality.
I simply relate to these words blissfully. I am like ‘wow’! This is it how I feel about my life.
I think this kind of discontinuity is what happened to be when I had an episode of manic depression and subsequently learning to cope with my bipolar disorder over the last 2 to 3 years!
To me, it meant a leap towards being a different person, living life in a different way!
The book seems like a lucid spiritual writing and I think its going to be a good one.
