The Message of a Flower

‘Let us have constantly before us a few flowers, just a few simple blooms on our table or office desk to keep us in touch with the Infinite.

When we look lovingly into the tender face of a wayside flower we see not a mere neglected, unappreciated blossom, wasting its sweetness on the desert air but something of the imagination of the Divine mind.

For, those who look upon nature with appreciative eyes and understanding heart enter into the inner meaning of things. Their thoughts become spiritualised, their consciousness enlarged, their inner life quickened, as the Unity of all life is absorbed into their being.’

by Henry Thomas Hamblin
