The Mud Flower
The mud flower offers a simple phrase for your reflection - no mud, no lotus. The image presents a 14 petaled lotus flower unstained by the abundant mud that surrounds it. This ancient flower is honored by many as a symbol of enlightenment, purity, self generation and rebirth. From the foundation of mud the most beautiful and magnificent lotus emerges in full bloom as a poetic metaphor for the human condition. The mud serves as a symbol of the more stubborn challenges of life which can sink our spirit of optimism to push forward. However, our deeply held dreams usually do not simply appear for us but rather require the dirty daily work of embracing and overcoming the obstacles that stand between where we are and where we desire to be. We cannot have the fragrant beauty of the lotus without the murky muddy waters. Identically, we cannot have knowledge, wisdom, and rebirth without the challenges which present us the opportunities to gain it. According to numerology, the number 14 embraces the initiative of the number 1 coupled with the stability and order of the number 4. This number offers the encouragement to take the initiative needed to activate your divine dreams and to stay focused as you build on your aspirations while honoring and sharing the wisdom that life’s muddy moments have provided for you.
