Simply unbelievable

“…if you have eyes you will be able to see that the whole existence is joyful. Everything is simply happy…Look at the flowers – for no reason. It is simply unbelievable how happy flowers are.”Osho

I disagree sharply with many of the teachings attributed to Osho, but I have to agree with him about the flowers.  The daffodil, my favorite flower, seems particularly joyful to me.  Perhaps it’s just that the blooms arrive very early, when we need them most.  In less than a month, we’ll be seeing the first of them in bloom – something to look forward to amid the chilly gloom of a February day!
