A flower’s blossom can represent the fleeting nature of life. They appear brightly, seemingly out of nothing from bare branches, but all too briefly… then they are gone. They can represent the Buddhist insight that all things are fleeting and change, that everything like the seasons themselves keep changing, where the only thing of value is the cultivation of awareness in order to appreciate this very moment.
Sometimes the sheer beauty of color and perfume flower blossoms express transports us to an awareness of the sacred.
