Waiting to Sprout

     “Your heart is full of fertile seeds, waiting to sprout.  Just as a lotus flower springs from the mire to bloom splendidly, the interaction of the Breath of Heaven and the Breath of Earth, and the subtle functioning of fire and water cause the flower of the spirit to bloom in this world.”

– Morihei Ueshiba, The Art of Peace
