inspiration

the lotus flower. a symbol of hope, beauty, the ability to overcome adversity, to come thru a mucky path and end up somewhere lovely. i really don't think there are many things more beautiful and inspiring, literally or figuratively. i came across these today in an unlikely place and i'm so thankful i had my camera with me.

i like lotuses and numerology. when i noticed you posted at 4:44, i googled the meaning of 4. how's this for some symbolism?

"4 is the number of perfection in the earth. However, when certain numbers are multiplied they still relate to perfection. When the number is higher it can relate to time, money, government or spiritual matters. In this case, it relates to something going on in this physical realm concerning spiritual, physical and financial perfection. Three 4's can relate to three areas in your life God is going to perfect on the earth."

Spirituality- I still remember attending a yoga class and having a teacher hand out a picture of a lotus flower.

We have that same lotus in our ponds here. It is a stunner.
