The lotus flower has a unique characteristic in that it blooms and sheds its seeds at the same time. In Buddhism, karma says that, just like the lotus flower, our life is made up of cause and effect. Every cause — be it action, word or thought — will imprint an effect that can be seen in this lifetime. The Buddha is often seated on a lotus flower. The lotus produces a beautiful flower even with its roots in the dirtiest water. The symbolism is that a person can rise above being rooted in the ugliness and suffering of this world, and should try to be pure and help others with the beauty of the spirit

I love you babe.

“The road to hell is paved with good intentions; the road to heaven is paved with good work”

It’s a virtue.
