~ Alive/Dead ~
A pond with a whole lot of live plants is a beauty. It attracts the people to stop and admire its beauty. The flowers are the guest houses for the bees and other visitors. There is so much life and freshness. The fragrance of the flowers fill the air. A live plant is an enhancer to the already existing pond.
Same plant when it is dead, what a plight it renders! No longer it is called as a plant but regarded as debris. The pond still exists. Fragrance to stink, freshness to dullness. From a pond full of life and activity, when filled with dead plants, it takes the shape of a mortuary. No one would ever wish to visit a pond of mortuary and spend an evening by the side of it.
This body is like a pond. keep the plant alive within, let it emanate the fragrance. Your presence in this world with this body is like a pond full of life, freshness and fragrance. Clear the debris within and let it not contaminate the rest. This is a wonderful mobile pond. Unlike the pond that has to wait for the visitor to visit it, this human pond is blessed to have the best of both. Can move or can choose to be at one place too. when it is alive only, dont send it to a mortuary.
Letting it flow with the freshness and fragrance or letting it stagnate and stink is the wisdom of the individual.
