Why did it bloom, if it’s going to wither?

There is a new flower in my garden.

It is soothing to watch it blooming.

But it will wither and go back to soil by evening or so..

Then why did it bloom initially..?

    One more question to your question Akhila, ” When finally we are going to be one with the soil, why are we born?”

    Because that is life my dear Akhila, all things that have life in them have to wither and go back to their soil. This is how life has been made. So why give so much meaning and enjoy. Loved your simple and great post.

        Yes and you must always try and try to be happy and live happily and make others happy too. Yes of course our own shadows will not want us to be happy too.

    Because it will come out in a different form… these are just the two sides of the existence which helps us to appreciate both aspects of life !!

        May be… but even rebirth will also have to go through this cycle… this is just a cumulative productive time span that every life exist and then perish !! 🙂

            Something doesn’t really end…
            Something which was there before us, and will always be there even in our absence !! Similar to “satnam” !!

    To show you that in Lif there is beauty- accept it , enjoy it , love it but alos remember life is a process of change and it is natural – things don’t always stay the saem. Death is not scary -it is about transformation xxx

    You are just a guest here. This world is just an illusion,Your life is short
    Money, ego, house, jewellery,nothing you will take along with you.
    You came here empty handed, you will go empty handed. You know this, but you are acting ignorant, and wasting your life
    The way you are lost in everyday life you have forgotten God in this problem of ego We have seen this yet
    Those who run after material thing lose, One who understood real meaning of life cries over life
    You believe the mortal life,
    thinking of what do you love this life?

    In their daily troubles, whoever is there, is lost,
    In reality, who has understood what is life..

    It bloomed because you made it bloom. You wanted to see the beauty. Just like you are doing everything else in your world without thinking about it. You made that flower bloom in the same way you make your heart beat or hair grow. Nature is the living subconscious.

            exactly i cant sort out your qeuries ( its too complicated ) i think god almighty has decided it , ” only you can play your role perfectly “if god has substituted someone else instead ,it wouldnt be an ideal piece.

    To make your smile bloom and hopes florish. And, it goes back (of drops down) to remind you that it’s a happiness and sadness are just the ups and downs. When one goes the other comes, so enjoy both✌

    It’s same like we have to die one day yet we are born..to live our short span of life to the fullest,to explore and experience,to be happy and to make others happy.That’s the virtue behind the mystery of life and death..we have to feel the both eventually.

      Maybe we will end up in another universe at a later point and time. I think we stay in soul groups where the group goes together and plays different roles life to life.
      I don’t think anyone is peeping over us. I believe the human race is in its infancy. Maybe some day if we grow up they will pay attention to us.

    If there was no ending to things, there would be no beginnings. There is no beauty without ugliness, and so on. We need contrasts and opposites in life to give it meaning: if the flower would bloom forever, would we even give it a second look or thought?

    From dust to dust is the rule of nature. What goes up must come down. So what blooms must wither, at least one day! So enjoy the beautiful fragrance while it lasts, my dear Akhi!

        Because the whole point of the period between it becoming a bud and then withering is the beauty of blooming and spreading its beautiful fragrance to the world, that is for you to enjoy. Well, if you would rather wallow about its withering when then it is fresh and spreading out its beauty, then is it not you who is at a loss? Is it not you who is missing the best part of witnessing and enjoying that beautiful flower?

    Hey Akhila, I already moved my blog (Kizo Daniels’ Blog) from this old address to my new blog address: http://www.kizodanielsblog.com

    I transferred your WordPress subscription to my new blog (that’s why it probably appears that you are no longer following this old blog address in particular), but you still get to see my posts on your WordPress feed (because you’re now subscribed to my new blog address), but I would love it so much if you could subscribe instead via EMAIL so that you get every post delivered in your mailbox.

    Also, I tried to see if there was a way I could follow your blog posts via email but didn’t see the box for that. Kindly let me know if there’s a way I can do that. I’ll be setting this old blog address to ‘private’ soon.

    Check out my new blog…and subscribe to that via email. Thanks.

    Everything in life has a purpose. We aren’t all destined to be great. Some of us have to be the flower that blooms once and inspires someone else for a lifetime. Think about it.
    Nice to visit your blog.
