one by one

"The lotus is the most beautiful flower,
whose petals open one by one. But it
will only grow in the mud. In order to
grow and gain wisdom, first you must
have the mud - the obstacles of life and
its suffering. The mud speaks of the
common ground that humans share, no
matter what our stations in life.
Whether we have it all or we have
nothing, we are all faced with the same
obstacles: sadness, loss, illness, dying
and death. If we are to strive as human
beings to gain more wisdom, more
kindness and more compassion, we must
have the intention to grow as a lotus
and open each petal one by one."
