100 Lotus Flowers

2009: 100 Lotus Flowers taking me through a transition in my life. Each flower is a message which brings me closer to the goal. I try to come to terms with myself, and be myself. What messages do the flowers hold?
2013: What is the goal? I no longer know what it is, except for reaching the 100. But the 100 was not supposed to be the goal itself, but rather help reach the.....the.....I am lost, honestly lost. Everything I was striving for has diminished in importance. I do not know what to strive for. I think striving for anything now is pointless....but I will keep drawing and painting.
2014: A renewed sense of purpose, things seem to be falling into place.

100 Lotus Flowers, 100 points of healing.

Thirty Third Lotus Flower

Thirty Third Lotus Flower - Mixed Media Samantha Rochard

We seek this concept of purity
To which each has a different meaning
Is it purity as defined by others?
Or a purity of our true nature

In Buddhism, the white flower represents the state of spiritual perfection and total mental purity (bodhi). However, the concept of mental purity clearly is an individual one. No two states may be the same. Mental purity can only be defined as our nature in sync with our goals...or can it be our goals in sync with our nature.
