So many readers have commented on the connection between the muck and the Lotus, that it seemed only apt to devote an entry to the Lotus and the proverbial jewel within Her. Om mani padme hum. The jewel, resting within the thousand-petaled lotus which blooms within the awakened heart. Omg, mani padme hum. The lingam resting within the yoni. Om mani padme hum. The most exquisite lotus blooming pure from the filthiest, muddy waters, and humanity arising, finally and pure, from the muck of the collective psyche of impressions, separating us from the knowledge of who and what we truly are.
Listen, the Lotus does not arise exquisite despite of the filth of the mud, the Lotus arises exquisite because of it. Listen, the Lotus does not arise exquisite despite of the filth of the mud, the Lotus arises exquisite because of it. Listen:
All existence is a mirror of the Divine Creative Intelligence of the Infinite. Born into form through the gates of the Divine Mother, the Manifestation delights in its own existence and the Manifestation delights the Infinite. We are the Manifestation. We are, each of us, an embodiment of the Divine. And Divine, when the Doorway of the Heart opens, it is the Infinite which awakens within us.
