Sunflowers turn according to the position of the sun, in other words, they “chase the light.”
You might already know this, but there is another fact that you probably do not know!
Have you ever wondered what happens on cloudy, rainy days when the sun is completely covered by clouds?
This is an interesting question, isn’t it? Perhaps you think the sunflower withers or turns its head towards the ground. Is this what crossed your mind? Well, that’s incorrect! Do you know what happens? They turn to each other to share their energy.
Nature’s perfection is amazing; now let’s apply this reflection to our lives.
We all want this light and seek it in different ways: in our family, friends, religion, work and so on. But there are always going to be cloudy days, sad days, because there is no escaping them! When this happens, most people become overwhelmed, low-spirited, and the most vulnerable ones, sometimes, become depressed.
Nature has so much to teach us! How about following the example of the beautiful sunflowers? In a moment of pain, despair, anguish, look within yourself with sincerity and know there is also a light within you and this light can be shared with the ones you love.
Difficult and painful feelings that are repressed, sooner or later, turn into an illness. Do you need to be affected by an illness to start working on opening up to others? Don’t make things harder! Look at the sunflowers! They don’t dwell on, “Oh, the sun is hidden, so I’m going to stand here feeling sad, with my head hanging low, waiting for him to come back…”
No! At that very moment, they activate their inner light and share it with others…
