Once there was a dandelion that had 3 beautiful, yellow children. These sisters used to play in the wind together and were known across the meadow for their sweet fragrance and striking color. One morning as the 3 sisters opened to the sun, the appearance of one of the flowers was changed. Its blossom, although fuller, was now comprised of tiny, white seedlings.
The 2 other sisters were frightened by their sister’s new appearance and questioned, ‘what has happened to you? Are you alright?’
Gently the third sister replied, ‘do not be frightened. I know I look different, but inside I am still the same. Remember mother said this was a natural process. Also there is a voice inside me which is whispering, ‘you have been waiting for this all your life.’
As the days passed, the 2 sisters grew embarrassed by their sister’s changed appearance and rarely spoke to her. This made the third sister very sad, but her inner voice told her not to give-up. Eventually she would know the meaning of her altered state.
One windy afternoon as the 3 sisters swayed on the building breeze, the small, white seedlings detached and lifted up into the wind. And as the seedlings sailed across the meadow, searching for a place to land and their new home, the flower rejoiced.
The next morning, there were only 2 sisters left to open to the sun and both had turned white.
Change is the Divine chord of the universe; daily like the dandelions we grow closer to our journey upon the wind. Remember, surrendering to the breeze is natural as breathing; and it is only our fear that blinds us to the excitement of a new life across the meadow.
