Tupac's Rose

The Rose That Grew From Concrete

Did you hear about the rose that grew from a crack in the concrete?
Proving nature's law is wrong it learned to walk with out having feet.
Funny it seems, but by keeping it's dreams, it learned to breathe fresh air.
Long live the rose that grew from concrete when no one else ever cared.

--Tupac Shakur

Tupac's rose is like the lotus flower in the last post. Cradle and nurture it now before it disappears, before beauty and joy and love are lost.

With bodhichitta at the foundation ofour thinking, everything we do or say wil help others be liberated...
