Seek the lotus

no mud, no lotus

“No mud, no lotus.” ~Thich Nhat Hahn

Without mud to grow in, a lotus does not blossom. Likewise, the “muddy places” in our lives can equally give rise to our own version of blossoming lotuses. You can focus on the mud, or you can look for the blooming lotuses. The more you seek them, the easier they become to find.
