Since we discussed metaphors earlier – here’s one that’s been useful to me. Many times a day, at work, I pass by a pool featuring dozens of the loveliest lotus flowers ever. It’s striking to see this beautiful symmetry right next to pond scum, and (to me) serves as a reminder that beauty & ugliness are both in the eye of the beholder, and are both merely constructs in consciousness. Also, the water droplet on the lotus leaf is a reminder – to be “in the world but not of it”.
