“When we resist change, it’s called suffering. But when we can completely let go and not struggle against it, when we can embrace the groundlessness of our situation and relax into it’s dynamic quality, that’s called enlightenment.” ..*
Buddhist Lotus Flower (Padma) According to Buddhist principles, the heart of a person who has not attained enlightenment is the embodiement of a lotus that has not blossomed yet. Once enlightenment has been reached their heart becomes a lotus in bloom.
The clever one relinquishes all, silently withdrawing, not dallying with pleasure yearning, such wise one remains unperturbed whether meeting success or touched by sorrow. Dhammapada 83 What-Buddha-Said.
