Coming Up Roses

My post yesterday  reflected on the seeking of a story worth telling.

Thanks to all those that chimed in with comments!

In a transparent revealing of my stream of consciousness, I’ll share that this morning’s writing exercise has left me only with thoughts of the roses at the Self-Realization Fellowship Lake Shrine in Malibu, California.

Dedicated by Paramahansa Yogananda in 1950, the Bohemian and I visited the temple in May 2012. Beautiful and serene, we soaked in the calm and smelled the roses.

These roses appear in my mind, as a quote from Yogananda is given via the Lake Shrine Temple’s website:

“Come into the silence of solitude, and the vibration there will talk to you through the voice of God.”

I believe God can be found in the fragrant folds of these petals, sharing an infinite supply of stories.
