The purple lotus is rare. Born submerged, the lotus plant extends its crown-like flowers toward the light, past the still surface of the water.

I was filled with gratitude when, as though witnessing a miracle, I found myself standing before two perfect companions growing side by side in a quiet pool. On the journey of becoming, here I was in the presence of two realized beings who, for a moment in time, had attained their perfect realization.




Sit with me to witness…

Witness the activity in your body
Witness the activity in your mind
Witness the activity in your heart
Then witness
the witnessing itself
May your Soul’s journey be as realized
as that of the purple lotus

The beautiful lotus rises through the murky waters of ponds and lakes. When it blooms, it floats upon the surface, its perfect petals untainted by the mud from which it has emerged. In the sacred symbolic language of Hinduism and Buddhism, the lotus perfectly embodies the soul, rising up through the murkiness of worldly experience until it reaches the surface of the spiritual realm and blooms, vibrant and pure, free from taint and attachment.
