Spiritual flowers

Spiritual_flowersEverything in nature corresponds to an inner quality of the human heart and mind.

In this way we can discover many hidden secrets about reality by taking a higher or more elevated view of things we find in the natural world. That includes flowers.

Flowers are pretty. Flowers delight us. And that happens to be exactly what flowers represent in the deeper world of human psychology.

Since flowers precede the forming of fruit in the physical world, they inwardly symbolize the happiness we feel in the anticipation of doing something nice (loving) in the world.

When we give flowers to another person (as many do on Valentine’s Day) it represents the joy of something more promising coming in the near future—directed at some individual in our lives. This sharing might lead to marriage, but always represents a strengthening of some bond between people (the fruit of their relationship).

Happy flower-giving this Valentine season!
