Efficiency is born from working smarter and not just harder. Don't get me wrong, you have to work hard, but in order to maximize your efforts you must become more efficient. The less energy you expend on any given activity means you'll have more left over to accomplish more tasks. Strive for efficiency. I believe in you.
Too beautiful, I had to share 🌸 "Imagine that you are a #lotus seed buried beneath a muddy lotus pond. There is mud all around you, and you can feel them clearly. Above you, above this muddy pool of dirt, mud and filth, are sunshine and air. You are not disheartened as you begin your journey towards the surface.
With a determined heart, you begin to wiggle in the earth. You grow roots deep, deep into the mud. Your little stem grows up slowly. Suddenly, "pop" you are out of the mud! Your stem grows higher and higher, taller and taller. You rise up slowly, fighting against the muddy water. All of a sudden, you are out of the muddy pond! You reach up towards the warm sun, shining down on you.
Your lotus bud begins to grow on top of your stem. It expands and grows larger and larger, finally bursting into full bloom. A lotus flower. You stand beautifully above the muddy water, not dirtied by the mud from which you grow. You are #beautiful .
Everyone who saw you marvelled at your beauty! Your determination to grow out of the muddy pond reminds them of the #Buddha and his journey towards Enlightenment. The Buddha, like a lotus, is determined to grow out of the muddy surroundings, that is the defilements and sufferings of life. He has done all that is to be done and he is showing us that we can all do it too. We may have defilements but we all have the potential of growing out of our defilements and achieving wisdom, like the Buddha.
You are a beautiful lotus flower, and your role is to remind people to rise above their defilements and sufferings, just as you are arising above the muddy water and not dirtied by the mud from which you #grow " 🌿 #tea#bath#vape#taste#smoke
