Purple Thoughts


"Why do we talk only about humans going to heaven? These little flowers gave so much beauty to their world during their brief existence, maybe more than what some of us humans could ever hope to give... will these plants be found in heaven now that they are long gone?"

There is a word in marathi - 'sahavas'. I believe perhaps that is the answer :)
Beautiful photo and yes a beautiful thought :)

Why in heavens would you require beauty in heaven? The place would be heavenly anyway..

It is down here, on Earth, with all its imperfections and imperfects like us, that beauty is required. Life would be untolerable otherwise..
