No mud, no lotus…


lotus in a mud

There is the mud, and there is the lotus that grows out of the mud.
We need the mud in order to make the lotus.

  1. Well said – as usual! Of course, this truth applies only to Earthly “life” so, “in the fullness of time” there is no mud and there is no lotus 🙂
    Notice that I did not write ” . . . there will be no mud . . . .”.
