Flowers of Peace

For this evening’s #colour_collective colour Imperial Purple another illustration of ‘Flowers of Peace’.

I figured, we can never sow too many flowers of peace.

This world is like a flower…

“This world is like a flower. Each nation is a petal. If one petal is infested, does it not affect all the other petals? Does not the disease destroy the life and beauty of the flower? Is it not the duty of each one of us to protect and preserve the beauty and fragrance of this one world flower from being destroyed?

This world of ours is a big, wonderful flower with many petals. Only when this is understood and becomes deeply ingrained in us, will there be any real peace and unity.

The tug of war between nations is like a tug of war between the petals of a flower. Competition between the petals will only result in all the petals withering away. The entire flower will be destroyed.

Division will only dissipate our energy and vitality; real power is to be found in unity, not in division.” ~ Amma (Mata Amritanandamayi) #EmbracingtheWorld


May all beings in all the worlds be peaceful and happy.

Have a peaceful and joyous weekend!
