I just checked out the book by Eckhart Tolle entitled “A New Earth: Awakening To Your Life’s Purpose” today at the Vista Library. My friend bragged about what an outstanding book it was and how it changed her life, and I must say it has been a joy to read.
The spiritualist Eckhart Tolle talks about the beginning of the world and the first flower that ever bloomed and how it began and spoke of how Jesus talked about how we should be more like flowers. (I am not quite sure how, to be honest with you. Maybe you can elaborate on that thought.) Also, Tolle talks in the book of how flowers, more than any other primeval plant were associated with the human feelings of beauty and love and inspired countless poets and philosophers and painters and writers.
Also, Tolle mentioned that flowers influenced the concept of Zen in Buddhism and because of their fragrance and beautiful colors were one of the first things that we treasured and valued as beautiful that were not needed for survival.
And so goes what I have read of the book. As I read more, I will write about what I have learned.
What do you associate with beauty and love?
