2. “REMEMBER THE LOTUS FLOWERGreat people will always be mocked by thoseWho feel smaller than them.A lion does not flinch at laughter coming from a hyena.A gorilla does not budge from a banana thrown at it by a monkey.A nightingale does not stop singing its beautiful songAt the intrusion of an annoying woodpecker.Whenever you should doubt your self-worth, remember the lotus flower.Even though it plunges to life from beneath the mud,It does not allow the dirt that surrounds itTo affect its growth or beauty.Be that lotus flower always.Do not allow any negativity or uglinessIn your surroundingsDestroy your confidence,Affect your growth,Or make you question your self-worth.It is very normal for one ugly weedto not want to stand alone.Remember this always.If you were ugly,Or just as small as they feel they are,Then they would not feel so bitter and enviousEach and every time they are forcedTo glance up at magnificentlyDivine YOU.”

3. “We are often given pills or fluids to help remedy illness, yet little has been taught to us about the power of smell to do the exact same thing. It is known that the scent of fresh rosemary increases memory, but this cure for memory loss is not divulged by doctors to help the elderly. I also know that the most effective use of the blue lotus flower is not from its dilution with wine or tea – but from its scent. To really maximize the positive effects of the blue lily (or the pink lotus), it must be sniffed within minutes of plucking. This is why it is frequently shown being sniffed by my ancient ancestors on the walls of temples and on papyrus. Even countries across the Orient share the same imagery. The sacred lotus not only creates a relaxing sensation of euphoria, and increases vibrations of the heart, but also triggers genetic memory - and good memory with an awakened heart ushers wisdom.”

4. “Everything turns in circles and spirals with the cosmic heart until infinity. Everything has a vibration that spirals inward or outward — and everything turns together in the same direction at the same time. This vibration keeps going: it becomes born and expands or closes and destructs — only to repeat the cycle again in opposite current. Like a lotus, it opens or closes, dies and is born again. Such is also the story of the sun and moon, of me and you. Nothing truly dies. All energy simply transforms.”

6. “When he appeared before the lord, his lordship was smitten immediately with the boy's unadorned beauty, like a first glimpse of the moon rising above a distant mountain.

One by one his other qualities became apparent, from his nightingale voice to his gentle disposition, as obedient and true as a plum blossom.”

When that music starts rising in you, that’s what the Secret of the Golden Flower is all about: suddenly a flower bursts open in you, a golden lotus. You have arrived, you have come home.”

19. “One day, the lotus spoke again. "You remember me? The flower that grows through the mud?" I did. I said as much. "Have you ever considered my significance? I'm everywhere - art, religion, nature.... Have you ever wondered why?" ... It spoke, "Nothing touches me. I radiate beauty. You can do the same." "How?" I asked. "Easy," it said. "I grow in a pond. I take the water and nutrients I need to grow, and let the rest sink to the bottom. What's in mud, anyway? Water, nutrients, life and a little bit of sludge. Let the sludge go like I do. Then stand tall above the leaves.”
