There it sits in all its glory
Perfect pink petals open to the world for all to see

It’s center core burning bright and golden like the sun,
Its stamen fluttering like ballerina’s dancing in the gentle breeze, attracting Bees

Pollination is its goal and its final destination in life
Born from the murky depths of the lake entrapped in mud

Until one day, life awakens its core and the journey to the surface begins
A gentle bud pushing away the mud, rising up to reach the sky

Onward and upward it grows, rising up to break the surface and out into the air, to take its first breath

The time has come; the grand opening is here, the splash of colour, the gentleness, the joy,
The happiness and smiles on the faces of those who see its birth
Its beauty, its simplicity, its colour, its texture

The Lotus,
A flower worthy of the Buddha
The seat of enlightenment

Nature’s perfection, a gift from high.

Namaste with Love
Always

Therefore your problems and challenges are a sign that your life is asking to grow. We can say Yes or No… More here: http://thankingthespoon.com/2013/02/03/7-ways-to-make-the-most-of-your-problems-buddha-style/
