Mama Mantra: No Mud No Lotus
A mantra is a statement repeated over and over, often used to allow greater concentration in meditation. I offer different mantras every Monday and encourage you to find the mantra that speaks to you in the moment.
No Mud. No Lotus.
If you are a frequent visiter to this blog then you know that this is one of my all time favorite mantras. No mud, no lotus. Know mud, know lotus. I love the imagery of one of the world's most beautiful flower thriving in sewage for just as we must blossom through challenges, so must the lotus. This mantra gives me perspective when I need it most. I repeat it when I have a hard time seeing above my circumstances and can't imagine a more beautiful reality emerging on the other side of the problem.
