Golden heads bobbing in the sun conversing with playful ease, giving and receiving, an intriguing dance is displayed. I crouch to get a better view and suddenly feel part of this community of flowers. Wild Calendula draws me near, so that I may carefully observe what is being conveyed. I sense an offering of connection and I embrace the warmth.
Known by many as “Mary’s Gold” – her vivid wisdom shines bright. Are we able to listen as well as we speak? Can we tune in to another’s view and witness what is being expressed, with an open, loving heart? As we try to get our point across emphatically, are we able to hear what is being related to us?
When we enter into communication with receptivity, as well as skillful articulation, we create deep relationships. I recognize the power of the spoken word in my attunement to others. The gift of Calendula’s abundance is clearly reflected in the radiance emanating from this glowing flower.
