“Don’t go outside your house to see the flowers.
My friend, don’t bother with that excursion.
Inside your body there are flowers.
One flower has a thousand petals.
That will do for a place to sit.
Sitting there you will have a glimpse of beauty
inside the body and out of it,
before gardens and after gardens.”
We are inundated with billions of bits of information at any moment but we only process a few thousand to decide our "reality".
Rather than trying to understand by looking out into the world what if we actually went to the Source, which is inside of us.
When we are able to go to the flower with a thousand petals inside will we truly know.
The Kingdom of Heaven is within.
