Flowers in the mire/Fleurs dans la boue

Flowers in the mire/Fleurs dans la boue

It’s like this: The high plateau does not produce lotus flowers; it is the mire of the low swamplands that produces these flowers.
Vimalakurti

(C’est comme ceci: Le haut plateau ne produit pas les fleurs de lotus; c’est la boue des marécages en-bas qui produit ces fleurs.)

    It is a statement not AGAINST separation but FOR nonseparation!
    It is saying yes to whatever arises — even no.

    We say close the gap between your self and your Self.
