It is a late bloomer... The rest of the azaleas have already exploded in a well-timed orchestration of color: whites along the driveway, reds around the house, pinks in the courtyard, each coming in and out of bloom in accord with the early springtime clock. They've already donned their more modest green cloaks of summer. But this variegated pink and white azalea blooms to its own clock, its own rhythm, its own frequency. It is the quintessential soloist, a loner: it has its own color, timing, beauty and pitch. It stands out of the crowd and expresses its beauty now, a month after the rest of the azaleas have already faded.
For so many of us, the idea of stepping out of sync with the larger part of society is unthinkable. Much of this is conditioning. Sometimes we don't know that there is any other way. Sometimes we are afraid to be different, to potentially face social ridicule or banishment; at other times we are so attached to the superiority of our world view that we reject the possibility of any other offering a better alternative.
Yet, when it comes to reclaiming control and ownership of our health, we may have to step onto a different path.
Wishing you a joyful day, and a joyful engagement in life!
