Happy




"Look at the trees, look at the birds, look at the clouds, look at the stars... and if you have eyes you will be able to see that the whole existence is joyful. Everything is simply happy. Trees are happy for no reason; they are not going to become prime ministers or presidents and they are not going to become rich and they will never have any bank balance. Look at the flowers - for no reason. It is simply unbelievable how happy flowers are." ~Osho

It seems Osho was somewhat channeling Francis of Assisi with that quote who himself was paraphrasing concepts attributed to Jesus of Nazareth who likely was paraphrasing some other wise source. Some sentiments are simply timeless and cross all artificial boundaries. Thank you Diane!

Such a nice way to celebrate life with such pics and such a quotation.
The flower reminds me of waffles... never seen such a flower in the past.

Happy, happy! How did I miss this post?! LOL (Ruffles potato chips must have copied these flower petals...)

I wonder what flowers these are with their crinkly petals. When I see yellow flowers, it reminds me of my mother who loved that color. She was a very sunshiny person.
