Drinking from the sweet nectar of life.

Nectar is a sweet liquid secreted by flowers of various plants, and consumed by pollinators, such as hummingbirds and insects, and gathered by bees for making honey.

P1140768

As we observe the collecting and drinking of nectar we see life in its continual state of transformation and flux.

By protecting  plants that provide nectar we play our vital part in the rhythms of life.

P1140057

‘We see that life, composed of this mind and body, is in a state of continual constant transformation and flux.    There is always the possibility of radical change.   Every moment – not just poetically and figuratively, but literarily – every moment we are dying and being reborn, we and all of life….’   From the book   Buddhist Offerings 365 Days.
