    "The lotus is a flower that grows in the mud. The thicker and deeper the mud, the more beautiful the lotus blooms." May you live like the lotus: at ease in muddy water!

      The lotus flower symbolises the ultimate perfection; its purity is not touched by the mud from which it originates. (I think this is a water lily, actually... but still a beautiful pic and quote.)

    The lotus is the official flower of India. It represents long life, honor, and good fortune. It is also a symbol of triumph, since the lotus is rooted in the mud and can survive to regerminate for thousands of years. Even though it grows in mud, it remains pure and produces beautiful flowers. Thus, it symbolizes purity of heart and mind.

    The light shines through the cloudiest of days, wrapping me in its warmth and security. I open, like a flower, growing, stretching, reaching, reveling in its embrace.

    The lotus is a symbol of purity. Its roots are in the mud, but the flower remains above dirty water. Live a lotus life, be in the world, but unaffected by impurities.

    Ephesians 4:15 Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, 16 from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.

    Lotus flower. ♥ A beautiful flower grows of muddy water.

    Lotus blossoms differ from a lily by their height off the water. Whereas lilies can rest on the water or just above, lotus can rise several feet above. As a lotus is able to emerge from muddy waters, un-spoilt and pure, it's considered to represent a wise and spiritually enlightened quality in a person; and is a very important symbol in Hinduism, Buddhism, as it was for the ancient Egyptians.
