Let them bloom

When we practice the art of mindful living, we water the positive elements in ourselves and each other.

We see that the other person, like us, has both flowers and garbage inside, and we accept this.

Our practice is to water the flower in our loved one, and not bring them more garbage.

When we try to grow flowers, if they don’t grow well, we don’t blame them or argue with them.

Our partner is a flower.

If we take care of them well, they will grow beautifully.

If we take care of them poorly, they will wither.

To help a flower grow well, we must understand it’s nature.

How much water and sunshine do they need?
