Nalini means lotus, the lotus flower named (aquatic perennial) has been used throughout history in many forms.
Symbolically, medicinally and even used as fragrance to the Kings and Queens of ancient lands, the lotus is a sacred symbol of wisdom, of unity or the great Divine that lies sleeping within all of us.
Many nations such as Egypt, India and China have revered this sacred flower, as it rises through the turkey waters of 'maya' (The Illusion) into the higher consciousness's beyond our reach.
The flowers also symbolises detachment, as water rolls off the petals and back in to the ground, it give meaning that the purity of the soul, having reached enlightenment, can't be tainted.
The lotus flower in Buddhism also refers to rebirth and the core belief of reincarnation as the petals shed and the plant is regrown again.
How can we take wisdom from this beautiful and sacred symbol, well the beauty of the lotus is that we can take our own meaning from it.
It means to every individual something different, just as every individual lotus plant has different marking and is affected by its own individual surroundings, so are we.
We all look different, we all have our own journey and we all have our own markings, beauty is truly in individuality. We are a product of our environment willingly or unwillingly, we mould and shift our nature and to the context of situations that happen around us. We are the sacred and beautiful leaf's that repel the water and yet also the root that holds us firm to the ground in the murky waters of our embodiment.
You are the lotus, you are the flower, the stem and the root.
You are the embodiment of all that exists, reach your petals to the celestial sky above in hope of salvation.
