A water lily is born underneath the water, inside the soil at the bottom of the river or lake. And the water lily has always been a water lily for that whole time that it was sprouting out of the wet soil, reaching up through the dark water towards the sunlight, stretching and grasping for the surface; where it then buds and blooms on the outside in the sunshine. It doesn't bud and bloom on the surface and then try to reach down below into the soil.
The best kind of change is a change that comes from the inside and begins its way out until it emerges on the outside; a change that is born underneath and continues to spread until it has reach the surface. That's a true change. A powerful change.
While we are emerging, changing to something glorious, it is actually us becoming who we really are.
