A Lotus Grows in Brooklyn

Hi! I’m Carrie M.

CarrieJust a girl living in Manhattan (formerly of Brooklyn, hence the blog name), finding my way down the path. Thanks for looking at the site!

P.S. That’s me in a field on Bar Island, Maine. I is far away.

P.P.S. I recently started a new blog to focus on writing. You can find it here: http://sparkleforamoment.wordpress.com.

That made me laugh. I like how the photo you have of yourself for your “About Me”, is from really far away. I like that.

I really like your blog. It combines two things I love Brooklyn [Born and raised] and vegetarianism. I look forward to coming back often

Thanks for looking, Seeker! I plan to begin updating this blog more often starting next week, so I hope you do indeed keep coming back! 🙂

Hello Again Carrie,

I read a cool description of a lotus I thought you might enjoy from a book of sufism and dreams. It is pasted below.


Like the lotus that gradually grows underwater, most of the work of transformation happens below or beyond the threshold of ordinary consciousness. But when the lotus reaches the surface, it flowers, opening to the sun; and similarly there comes the time when we need
to know what is happening within us, when we need
to take conscious responsibility for the light of our divine Self.

Wow, that’s lovely, Dave! What a wonderful description of the lotus as metaphor for pursuing our own spiritual path. Thanks!
