LOTUS & SPIRITUALITY

*Inspirational quotes about Lotus Flower


​Oh, Human ! 
This village (life) of yours is balanced on the lotus
leaf and​ your lifespan is just alike a drop of water
running down that leaf, which may fall any minute.

Lord in the Vedad


"May Your Consciousness blossom like a Lotus Flower"

By means of microscopic observation and

astronomical projection the lotus flower can
become the foundation for an entire theory
of the Universe and an agent where by we
may perceive Truth.

Yukio Mishima

If you feel lost, disappointed, hesitant, or weak, return to yourself, to who you are, here and now. And when you get there, you will discover yourself, like a lotus flower in
full bloom, even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong.
                         Masaru Emoto,The Secret Life of Water




The Self is hidden in the lotus of the heart. Those who see themselves in all the creatures go day by day into the world of Brahman hidden in the heart. Established in peace, they rise above body consciousness to the supreme light of the Self. Immortal, free from fear,  this Self is Brahman, called the True. Beyond the mortal and the immortal, he binds both worlds together. Those who know this live day after day in heaven in this very life.
                                    Chandogya Upanishad 




Say not
"I have found the truth"
but rather 
”I have found a truth”
Say not
"I have found the path of the soul" 
Say rather
 "I have met the soul walking upon my path."
 For the soul walks upon all paths...
The soul unfolds itself,
​like a lotus of countless petals.
Kahlil Gibran 


The one who wanders independent in the world,​ free from opinions and view points,does not grasp them and enter into disputations and arguments. As the lotus rises on its stalk unsoiled by the mud and the water, so the wise one speaks of peace and is unstained by the opinions of the world.     Buddha     
 



As a lotus flower is born in water, grows in water and rises out of water to stand above it unsoiled, so I, born in the world, raised in the world having overcome the world, live unsoiled by the world.  
Buddha


God is the Sun and when His rays fall upon your heart,
 not impeded by the clouds of egoism, the lotus blooms
and the petals unfold.
Sri Sathya Sai Baba

Lotus Flower Meditation


Sit in your meditative pose and breathe slowly... deeply...

Relax  your mind and your entire body...

Inhale and move your consciousness up slowly...

from the base of the perineum up to the center of your chest...

Continue to focus on your chest as you breathe deeply...

Allow your awareness of the sensations in your chest to deepen...

As you breathe in, breathe into the heart.and as you focus on the heart,imagine a lotus flower slowly opening its petals as you inhale...

As you exhale, just rest your awareness inside the lotus flower...


As you rest within your lotus flower, feel the abundance of unconditional love emerge...

Continue to breathe slowly  as you exist harmoniously within your heart flower...

Once you feel in harmony in your heart flower, bring your palms together in the Salutation and take a moment to feel gratitude for the benefits you've received...

The Blue Lotus of the Nile was associated with the sun God Ra as the Bringer of Light. 

Blue lotus, echo of my ancestors, I drink you in, and I am transported to a time of day dreams and ecstasy. 

Wine and flower petals, golden elixir, passed to me in the dream time,flowing through me, pulsing the ancient dream. 

Opening to the morning sun, spilling your fragrant nectar into the air around me, closing in the evening you magically disappear floating on the waters of chaos. 

Dance with me blue lotus the dance of ancient gods, spinning, turning to renew, releasing me to higher realms. 

Memories awaken, of days long gone, standing in your fragrant presence, memories seeds, still live within my spirit. 

You are like the Nile, river of my birth,her tributaries reaching, like a blossom to the sea. 

Blue lotus, mystical flower, come to me, dance in my spirit once moreand transport me home to the place of my birth, on the blue Niles shores. 

Blue Lotus, Nefertiti, echo of my ancestors, I drink you in and I am transported....

​God in the aspect of Divine Mother is frequently depicted as sitting or standing on a large lotus, a symbol of purity and wisdom, hence a symbol of the Christ (Kutastha) intelligence, the ‘only-begotten’ reflected intelligence of God the Father in creation.  Kutastha Intelligence initiates and guides all the activities of Cosmic Nature, the active principle or vibratory power of God manifesting in His creation.  ‘Blue lotus feet’ poetically suggests Her origin in the Kutastha Intelligence, which is associated with the color blue. Aum, Holy Ghost, Cosmic Nature are all symbolic names of the Divine Mother.”
“Cosmic Chants” by Paramahansa Yogananda, Beautiful chant “Blue Lotus Feet”.



We were talking about the space between us all and the people Who hide themselves behind a wall of illusion never glimpsing the truth, Then it's far too late when they pass away.

We were talking about the love we all could share When we find it to try our best to hold it there with our love With our love we could save the world if they only knew

Try to realize it's all within yourself, no-one else Can make you change and to see you're really only Very small and life flows on within you and without you.

We were talking about the love that's gone so cold And the people who gain the world and lose their soul They don't know, they can't see... are you one of them ?

When you've seen beyond yourself Then you may find peace of mind is waiting there And the time will come when you see we are all one And life flows on within you and without you.     
Swami Kriyananda
A pristine waterlily undiscouraged by its surroundings, rises from the depths of a murky pond. It's lotus petals perfume the air, as it flowers and blooms brilliantly, purely, divinely, despite and probably because of its origins. Becoming a spiritual person does not mean you to leave your prior life behind, but instead you ​integrate, learn, remember, and respect what brought you to this point  in the first place.

When the heart is open the lotus blossoms
 where there appeared to be no lotus . 
Unknown

But when one masters this wretched desire, 
which is so hard to overcome, then one's 
sorrows just drop off,  like a drop of water
off​ a lotus.

Buddha

​You shall obtain the fruits of your mind's desires, by focusing your consciousness on the Lord's Lotus Feet. He is totally pervading the water and the land. He is the Lord of the World-forest. Behold Him in exaltation in each and every heart.
Sri Guru Granth Sahib

The honey in the flower or lotus does not crave for bees ; they do not plead with the bees to come. Since they have tasted the sweetness, they themselves search for the flowers and rush in.They come because of the attachment between themselves and sweetness. So, too is the relationship between the woman who knows the limits and the respect she evokes. 
Sri Sathya Sai Baba

The Self is hidden in the lotus of the heart. Those who see themselves in all the creatures go day by day into the world of Brahman hidden in the heart.Established in peace, they rise above body consciousness to the supreme Light of the Self. Immortal, free from fear, this Self is Brahman, called the True. Beyond the mortal and the immortal, he bindsboth worlds together. Those who know this live day after day in heaven in this very life. 
Chandogya Upanishad
