The Simple Splendor of a Rose

The Simple Splendor of a Rose
Wake Up to Live with Desiree Leigh


"Compare the serene and the simple splendor of a rose in bloom
with the tensions and restlessness of your life.
The rose has a gift that you lack;
it is perfectly content to be itself.
It has not been programmed from birth,
as you have been, to be dissatisfied with itself,
so it has not the slightest urge to be anything other than it is.
That is why it possesses the artless grace and absence of inner
conflict that among humans is only found
in little children and mystics."

~Anthony DeMello, The Way to Love
