Seeing beauty in a flower can make people aware, if only for a moment, of the beauty that is an essential part of their innermost being, their true nature. The feelings of love and joy are intrinsically linked to the recognition.
If you are alert and look at a flower attentively without naming it mentally, it becomes a window on the formless for you. There is an inner opening, no matter how small, to the realm of the mind.
From: The new earth, Eckhart Tolle
