Aspiration in Nature

philodendronAt home I have a Philodendron plant, less a meter away from my meditation place. The plant is happy and shows me every day, what progress, eagerness and aspiration means. Leaf after leaf is created out of nothing and especially this time the birth of a leaf attracted my attention because it showed so much aspiration, it wanted to be the newest, highest and the most straight forward of all. From plants (and from all forms of nature) you can really learn. Let me quote one poem of Sri Chinmoy:

An aspiring soul
Is apt to drink
The eternal beauty
Of Mother Nature.
