The Meaning of Life
The Meaning of Life tends to sometimes whisper to me in quiet moments. One place where I tend to 'plug in' to the beautiful mystery of it all is, surprisingly, my bathroom. Today while I was sitting on my toilet peeing, I took in the view outside my bathroom window. My eyes were drawn to a white rose right outside my window. This rose was altogether unusual because the roses on that bush are generally pink, and the color really made it stand out to me.
Something about this rose continued to draw me in—the sunlight dancing around and through the petals, its similarity to a lotus flower—and suddenly it all came together with an inaudible 'click'. The breeze, the sky, the colors, the warmth: I could see, hear, feel, taste and touch Spirit, and I thought, “This is it. This is the meaning of Life.”
I think we can all experience beautiful moments like this, as often as we are open to it. Remember to look for the beauty in things, even if, perhaps especially if, you're in the bathroom at the time.
