this is my birthday deviation for ... me ♥ .

What's the meaning of this voyage ?
To talk in a dream
So many bends and these years we've been together passed

And all this time we were tremendously excited
About everything we saw
Everything we had talked about
Every detail of every moment that had passed

too many things to be said .
Our life will begin now . . .
Ready
One, two ... three ...



"I hope the seasons treat you well
I hope the seasons treat you kind
as kind as I never was
as comforting as I never could be

I hope this new season
brings you the cold air
I'm sure the wind blows gently on you now
I hope that nothing
will ever remind you of me..."



-carissas wierd .


Since these spider Lilies usually bloom near cemeteries around the autumnal equinox, they are described in Chinese and Japanese translations of the Lotus Sutra as ominous flowers that grow in 地 獄(also known as Hell), and guide the dead into the next reincarnation.
A famous legend is of two elves: 曼 珠, who guarded the flower, and 沙 華 who guarded the leaves. Out of curiosity, they defied their fate of guarding the herb alone, and managed to meet each other. At first sight, they fell in love ♥ with each other. G.O.D, exasperated by their waywardness, separated the miserable couple, and laid a curse on them as a punishment: the flowers of 曼 珠 shall never meet the leaves of 沙 華 again.
It was said that when the couple met after death in hell , they vowed to meet each other after reincarnation. However, neither of them could keep their words. ♥

Some other legends have it that when a person sees someone that they may never meet again, these flowers, also called red spider lilies, would bloom along the path. Perhaps because of these sorrowful legends .



believe it or not , they are in my path . ♥

Aah, higanbana...

I don't much believe in the legend of Manju and Saka, mostly because I have never heard of it before the popularisation of a Chinese drama that aired a few years ago. Before that time, it was always simply manjusaka, as it was originally written in the lotus sutra.

So... perhaps it's not to say that we shall never meet each other again but a sign from above that we are moving one step closer to enlightenment. We are close enough to have witness the blossoming of a flower that once existed only outside of our world. Not all change is bad, after all.

ehh . mmmm.
well ... in theory we may be moving one step forward/closer .
in the practice , this enlightenment may not be a sole intention for some .
i am sure you understand that.
thank you for your words and insight though .
Happy new year :party: btw.

No, no... most of us are not looking for enlightment.
I should say that most people are definitely not looking for enlightment. Nirvana is too lofty a goal for most people, after all. But on the path towards our eventual end, instead of focusing on the people that we will never meet again, it's perhaps somewhat better to think on the goals that we are setting for ourselves and the legacies that we are leaving behind. A somewhat more positive way to look at the world.

Happy New Year to you, too.
As ever, you are more than welcome.
