#652 There in the garden of the soul rests a rose bush, with a rose about to bloom. The rose represents the self, with an aspiration to be beautiful and bright in the eyes of the divine gardener. The gardener tends and nurtures the little rose, softly speaking words of encouragement…does it hear, will it continue to grow? Will it be vivid and bloom brightly, or are there other influences on the little roses which may threaten future and potential? Can these be overcome…?
