Chinese Painting --Withered Lotus

Someone said that when lotus flowers are blooming, you must see them, when lotus leaves are fade, you need to see them even more. So withered leaves also represents a spirit, tough and tensile, or a broad spiritual connotation only with less charming.

It seems to tell you that mean your life is , meet it and live it; do not shun it and call it hard names. It is not so bad as you are. Life is transient, just like the lotus flower. Cherish your time, love your life, poor as it is. Superfluous wealth can buy superfluities only. Money is not required to buy one necessary of the soul.

有人说,花开的时候要看荷,叶残的时候更要看荷,可见风荷老叶并不是代表衰败,颓废。虽然少了一些曾经的风姿,但是更多了一种坚韧的韵味,更具博大的胸怀。

它仿佛在告诉你,不管你的生活多么卑微,多么糟糕,都要好好过你的生活,不要逃避它,也不要抱怨它。生命其实很短,就像它一样短暂。珍惜你的时光,热爱你的生活,不管它有多么贫穷。其实每个人所需要的必需品都很少,多余的财富只会让你买多余的东西,而灵魂的必需品都不需要金钱来购买。

beautiful thoughts

I agree ..
love it or hate it - that's life
you may not like what it's giving you now
but surely it's only a blessing in disguise
as what looks like a problem could actually be an opportunity in disguise :)

Maybe it is.
but what color do you think ?
In Chinese painting, many things (flowers , birds, landscape )can be painted by ink.

u kill it . i love you

In antiquated China blooms symbolized feelings. For example, twin lotus blooms on one stalk or two trees with branches interlocked were envisioned to be dedicated couples. The lotus blossom means respectability, and the peony, riches and rank.
