"Many waters cannot quench love;
rivers cannot sweep it away.
If one were to give
all the wealth of one’s house for love,
it[a] would be utterly scorned."
Look what I found on Twitter!
I'm tearing up. Caught off guard.
Mhhh!!! I was looking for something else and this photo just unfolded before my eyes like a Lotus Flower.

And this leads me to believe that Saint Paul the invisible scribe behind this message. I'm busy putting things together in celebration of your grandiose reign.
I think a year ago I read about the Pink Lotus before I created it. I kept the message in my heart for a special person. I didn't know who or where God was sending it, but I knew for sure it was going to be signed and delivered to His Beloved on time. Two days ago the message revealed itself.
Makhulu here we are. This Pink Lotus reminds me of you. We've written much about you and much has been said quite exquisitely.
Today I add the sweetest Lotus touch.
From all of us who's lives you've transformed
Who's heart you've healed
We say Thank You!
I was completely lost after
Khulu Mandela passed on
You brought me back to life
I thank You Makhulu
Its a feeling I can't explain
Considering the fact that
I was never in his everyday life
This never bothered me
Because I was connected to him
In a way I can't explain
It was a devine connection
I believe this is the reason
I went to his home shortly before
He passed on!
God's ways are much deeper than we will ever know
Thank you for your shining light
For your strength and
Tender loving spirit
It is clear that
It is crystal clear that God appointed you way before you were in the womb to be The Queen of the World
To be our Mother
Our Spiritual Teacher
And our Glorious Ruler
Today you can rest knowing that the Lord says;
Good and faithful servant;
You were faithful over a few things,
I will make you ruler over many things.
Enter into the joy of your Lord"
You can rest knowing that you've taught us well Makhulu
Therefore we will gather together
To do all that needs to be done
To advance the human spirit
There are men and women of good will all over the world
Who will always spring forth to do right what others seek to destroy
Thus we will always TRIUMPH
Goodness shines brighter and it is stronger
History is a good reminder
We Thank God For You
We cherish you and Khulu Phillip forever more
God will always protect you and your family
Blessing you with sunshine love
And the desires of your heart
May you all have a wonderful day
From all of us on Planet Earth and Beyond.
The writer explains the meaning of the Pink Lotus
The pink lotus flower is perhaps one of the most celebrated flowers that there is. It is considered sacred, and it is associated within the highest realms of Buddhism, with the Buddha himself, many kings, and the highest deity often depicted with this plant.
The scientific name for the genus of lotus is Nelumbo, and the plant serves many uses, in addition to being associated with Hinduism and Buddhism, wrote is representative of creation, enlightenment, and purity; it is all a well-known source of food.
Indeed, in ancient Greek mythology Homer in his book the Odyssey describes how Ulysses visits the land of the lotus eaters.
The plant has many purposes, and can be used to make tea; its seeds can be eaten, as indeed can their tubers. Plants of the genus Nymphaea are also considered to be lotus, even though they are scientifically classified as water lilies.
Pink Lotus Flower and Buddhism
In Buddhism different colors of flowers have different symbolism is and meanings, for example the blue Lotus is associated with spiritual freedom, whereas the red lotus symbolizes love and compassion. However, it is the pink lotus flower that is considered to be the supreme lotus; the true locus of the Buddha.
One of the reasons that lotus flowers are considered so sacred is due to their daily cycle, they emerge slowly from dirty, muddy ponds over a period of a few days, and open all in the morning, and close their petals in the late afternoon. Despite, emerging from such a muddy and dirty environment, the lotus flower remains clean; and not only this it is beautiful. Many civilizations have therefore associated the lotus flower with rebirth and especially in Buddhism with purity.
The state that the pink lotus flower is in is also representative of the state that a person is going through and the flower represents ones heart; when the flower is a just a bud it is synonymous with a closed in person who is yet to step up other way of spirituality.
As a flower blooms it comes to represent a place in opening up to all that is around them. The fully opened pink lotus flower represents a full sense of enlightenment and somebody who has reached Nirvana.
Bear in mind that;
"Identification with your mind creates an opaque screen of concepts, labels, images, words, judgments and definitions that blocks all true relationships. It comes between you and yourself, between you and your fellow man and woman, between you and nature, between you and God. It is this screen of thought that creates the illusion of separateness, the illusion that there is only you and a totally separate "other." You then forget the essential fact that, underneath the level of physical appearances and separate forms, you are one with all that is.
The mind is a superb instrument if used rightly. Used wrongly, however, it becomes very destructive. To put it more accurately, it is not so much that you use your mind wrongly---you usually don't use it at all. It uses you. This is the disease. You believe that you are your mind. This is the delusion. The instrument has taken you over." Eckhart Tolle
I'm always appreciative and moved by Khulu Mandela's depth, spirituality, enlightenment, wisdom and the cheer ability to know, to know beyond form and thought. It is crystal clear that he was on a much higher plane. He was a prophet. While he was in prison he wrote a letter to Mrs Winnie Mandela which echoes Tolle's teachings;
"In judging our progress as individuals, we tend to concentrate on external factors such as one's social position, influence and popularity, wealth and standard of education... But internal factors may be even more crucial in assessing one's development as a human being:
Honesty, sincerity, simplicity, humility, purity, generosity, absence of vanity, readiness to serve your fellow men- qualities within the reach of every soul." Grandpa Mandela
Here we see his kindred spirit,
Head of church of England;
“ Defender of the Faith”
Who comes with boundless love meeting his deep seated love,
beliefs and a deep love for humanity.
We learn that an extra ordinary relationship is born.
Owaphosa amehlo akho
Ngokuba kulapho uncedo
Thina siphuma komkhulu
Ngoba, zibona apho amehlo enyama
Osizukulwana sigcwal' isumhlaba
Abonisa amaphupha abakhulu
Izwi LeNkosi laamemeza

Praise and thanks be to God
Joy and blessings to all.
May the grace of God be within us forever more.
