Be grateful of what is beneath you, for its holding you above it. Be aware of your surroundings and a way will appear. Stand up firm so you can see far. Look up so you can see the light.
Lotuses grow from mud. It’s the same with you. All of your problems, all of the stuff you don’t like about your life make up the mud so that your lotuses can take root and bloom.
Beautiful lotuses can only grow from the un-beautiful. Everything you experience can help you to become a happier person.
