The Flower and the Bee

I read this amazing quote this morning from Mark Nepo's book of Awakenings.

"The flower doesn't dream of the bee. It blossoms and the bee comes."

This give me such chills! It is written in reference to finding love, but it seems to me that this thinking can be applied to so many areas of life. There are so many places where I yearn to be fuller, better, more fullfilled, have more of what I want. And dreaming of those "bees" is so much less affective than doing the real work of blooming. And I see the incredible power in the small places of life where I've begun to bloom...the bee truly does come.

Good wished for us all to bloom to our full potential!

It gave me chills too, blooming is an ongoing thing i think. it reminds me of "bloom where you are planted".
