The Lotus Flower

a beautiful pink orange water lily/lotus in a dirty muddy water

 

Anybody who has ever seen a lotus flower growing and emerging from a dirty pond can't help but see the beauty and deeper meaning that this exquisite plant provides.

From muddy waters, beauty emerges, and the lotus flower shall always rise above the mud.

This is such a great a symbolism for life as well, that trying times and difficult situations that are hard to navigate can ultimately lead to beautiful outcomes and help to grow into even better human beings.

The lotus always looks so clean and pure against the background of the dirty pond and that juxtaposition has led to powerful symbolism and integration of the lotus across many cultures.
