A Plant Needs Attention
“A plant needs attention. If you have a plant unattended it will perish. Water may be available a few meters away, that will not help the plant. If there is not water at its roots it will die. So also, if it is denied direct sunlight.
It cannot help itself to the blazing sunlight just around the corner. A plant is wholly dependent upon the world around it.” Vedanta Treatise
The plant is your romantic heart. You have to be vulnerable and let it feel the romance. If you shut yourself off from possible pain, you are hurting yourself more than anyone else could. Remember, you may be shutting out something amazing just around the corner. Let your heart feel the love and the romance. Your heart depends on you.
