“Winter Flowers” | Anthony Satori
“Look within. Within is the fountain of good, and it will ever bubble up, if thou wilt ever dig.”
— Marcus Aurelius
I’ve always been fascinated with, and delighted by, flowers that bloom at night, or in the heart of winter. I find the mere existence of such joyfully contrarian and ebullient elements in nature to be both refreshing and inspiring. Winter-blooming flowers are truly demonstrating what it means to dig into one’s own innate “fountain of good,” and to create one’s own most pure and natural beauty from within one’s own true self.
“Flower Burst” | Anthony Satori
“I don’t believe in an outside agent that created the world and then walked away. But I feel very strongly there is an intelligence at work in every flower, in every blade of grass… and it is that intelligence that, I wouldn’t say created the universe. It is creating the universe. It’s an ongoing process.”
— Eckhart Tolle
“Gentle Beginnings” | Anthony Satori
So here we are, approaching the Vernal Equinox, the beginning of Spring. It is a time for renewal, for re-simplification, for immersing our senses in the vibrancy of life all around us. It is a time to fall in love, again, with the simple pleasures of being alive: warm air, sunshine, the sky and the sea… music, friends, food and conversation. It is a time to begin sowing fresh seeds of hope, cultivating nascent sparks of interest and desire, and cherishing the gentle beginnings of robust flowers.
“In Bloom” | Anthony Satori
“Being aware of one’s life, one’s revolt, one’s freedom, and to the maximum, is living, and to the maximum.” – Camus
The vital energy of the universe is bursting forth all around us. When we become aware of this essence, consciously choose to pay attention to it, and tap into our own inner resonance with these universal vibrations of beauty and life, we are in that very same moment awakening the infinite connection to the eternal that resides within each of us.
