About worldly temptations…

tempting hibiscus

“Beautiful, aren’t I? My colours, texture, shape and poise attract you, don’t they? Makes you want to possess me? Pluck me off the stem so that you can have me all to yourself? Before you decide though, look closer and you will see signs of my decline… If instead you focussed on my essence, you would not need to possess, your restlessness would disappear and be replaced by peace and contentment… Ahhh, contentment is an incomparable treasure!” – Hibiscus, Albion Garden, Mauritius
