And love is needed to become a flower.
'The seed is never in danger, remember. What danger can there be for the seed? It is absolutely protected. But the plant is always in danger, the plant is very soft. The seed is like a stone, hard, hidden behind a hard crust. But the plant has to pass through many hazards. And not all plants are going to attain to that height where they can bloom into flowers, a thousand and one flowers.
Very few human beings attain to the second stage, and very few of those who attain the second stage attain the third, the stage of the flower. Why can′t they attain the third stage, the stage of the flower? Because of greed, because of miserliness, they are not ready to share, because of a state of unlovingness.
Courage is needed to become a plant, and love is needed to become a flower. A flower means the tree is opening up its heart, releasing its perfume, giving its soul, pouring its being into existence.
Don′t remain a seed. Gather courage-courage to drop the ego, courage to drop the securities, courage to drop the safeties, courage to be vulnerable.'
