i'm listening to eckhart tolle 'a new earth', and eckhart starts out by using flowers as a talking point and an analogy for enlightment. but talking about it and being there are two entirely different things.
emily dickinson was all about being there.
i think if you understand this poem by emily you won't have to listen to eckhart tolle.
The good Will of a Flower
The Man who would possess
Must first present
Of minted Holiness.
