Rose within

 

Rose Within

 
A certain man planted a rose and watered it faithfully, and before it
blossomed, he examined it. He saw the bud that would soon blossom
and also the thorns. And he thought, "How can any beautiful flower
come from a plant burdened with so many sharp thorns?" Saddened
by this thought, he neglected to water the rose, and before it was
ready to bloom, it died.
 
So it is with many people. Within every soul there is a rose. The
God-like qualities planted in us at birth grow amid the thorns of our
faults. Many of us look at ourselves and see only the thorns, the
defects. We despair, thinking that nothing good can possibly come
from us. We neglect to water the good within us, and eventually it
dies. We never realize our potential.
 
Some people do not see the rose within themselves; someone else
must show it to them. One of the greatest gifts a person can possess
is to be able to reach past the thorns and find the rose within others.
This is the characteristic of love, to look at a person, and knowing his
faults, recognize the nobility in his soul, and help him realize that he
can overcome his faults. If we show him the rose, he will conquer the
thorns. Then will he blossom, blooming forth thirty, sixty, a hundred-fold
as it is given to him.
 
Our duty in this world is to help others by showing them their roses and
not their thorns. Only then can we achieve the love we should feel for
each other; only then can we bloom in our own garden.
