Thich Nhat Hanh states this ancient truth No Mud, No Lotus succinctly, “Suffering is a kind of of mud to help the lotus flower of happiness grow. There can be no lotus flower without the mud.” The mud nourishing the roots represents our messy human lives. It is within our human experiences and our suffering that we seek to break free and bloom. But while the flower rises above the mud, the roots and stem remain in the mud, where we live our lives. A Zen verse says, “May we exist in muddy water with purity, like a lotus.”
