Flower Zen

Posted by on May 10, 2011 in Philosophy | No Comments

Today when I walked out my parents’ house one thing immediately attracted my attention: a bonsai tree in full bloom in front of my neighbor’s house. I had to stop and look at it. Then I took a picture to share with everyone. (It’s an Adenium Obesum or Sabi Star)
It makes me recall a Zen Saying that goes like this: “Spring has its profusion of flowers, Autumn has its resplendent moon. Summer has its cooling breeze; Winter has its soft carpet of snow. If you don’t have a heart full of vexations then every season is a good seaon.”
We are so often pressed for time by vulgar everyday things. How long has it been since you slowed down and looking at the things changing around you?
