Roses and thorns within!

rose-n-thorns

A certain man planted a rose and watered it faithfully and before it blossomed, he examined it.

He saw the bud that would soon blossom, but noticed thorns upon the stem and he thought, “How can any beautiful flower come from a plant saddled with so many thorns? Saddened by this thought, he neglected to water the rose, and just before it was ready to bloom, it died.

So it is with many people. Within every soul there is a rose. The God-like qualities planted in us at birth, grow amid the thorns of our faults. Many of us look at ourselves and see only the thorns, the defects.

We despair, thinking that nothing good can possibly come from us. We neglect to water the good within us, and eventually it dies. We never realize our potential.

Some people do not see the rose within themselves; someone else must show it to them. One of the greatest gifts a person can possess is to be able to reach past the thorns of another, and find the rose within them.

This is one of the characteristic properties of love. To look at a person, know their true faults and accepting that person into your life. All the while recognizing, the nobility in their soul.

Help others to realize they can overcome their faults. If we show them the “rose” within themselves, they will conquer their thorns. Only then will they blossom many times over.

    So beautifully expressed, and yet so true! If only we could see beyond the faults and find that goodness hidden in everybody, we’ll not only be helping them discover their true self but also unlock our hidden potential, our goodness and discover our own selves as we were meant to!
