You see a flower wither and wilt and you say it has died.  But what is a flower?  You focus only on its outer beauty and call that the flower, yet inside the outer skin is life!  There is movement, flow, chemical processes taking place, and yet, the flower has no brain!  What a miracle is a flower!  The miracle of life!  And this same Life Force flows through you.  The body may wither and wilt, yet you are not the body.  The outer beauty is not indicative of life … it is the inner beauty shared by all things, all creatures, all of life.  That which enlivens a rose enlivens you.  Know this.  Savor this.  You are Life itself, to be honored, cherished, and appreciated.  L’Chaim!  To Life!
