Fireworks For The Soul

Flowers know the secret of beauty. 130 million years ago, plants learned that modifications in their form, texture, color, and odor can evoke the experience of beauty in other sentient beings. And they have been doing it ever since, wherever plants grow. Still today, flowers exercise the power of attraction as a reproductive strategy—so strongly, that 70 billion units of consciousness are moved by them. The amount of energy that goes into their cultivation and exchange is immeasurable. We use them not only to experience beauty personally, but also to express gratitude, appreciation, and love to one another. Even painted or photographic images of these masters in the use of light, prompt a response that is universal and akin to fireworks. We may not understand the nature of beauty, but we recognize it with every Wow!

 

Flowers don’t worry about how they’re going to bloom. They just open up and turn toward the light and that makes them beautiful.

What had to happen for flowers—and these images of them—to exist?

Literally, everything.
