April 03, 2020 4 Comments

The Crown Flower emerged wildly by itself (without being planted) underneath our sign that says: Self-Arising Nature Center, blooming auspiciously in March, 2020.

We are neutral, poised and can experience freedom from dualistic extremes: right/wrong, black/white, good/bad. It dissolves worry and angst and helps us experience our own true self-arising nature.
