GARDEN OF JOY

"The earth has music for those who listen."  - George Santayana

This SAGO PALM plant represents to me MALCHUT sh b' TIFERET.
Absolute wholeness, completeness of physicality in it's ultimate newborn expression of individuality and existence.
Light of G*d has become unified and revealed in each curl, becoming unfurled, of each frond
displaying the Harmony, Beauty, Balance, and Truth of TIFERET.  The Sago Palm contains all the energies of MALCHUT that have flowed.
 - Joy Krauthammer

May we be blessed to also contain all the life force gifted to us, and unfold each layer of our being in all its Beauty and Truth.

G*d's flora is awesome. Today the spiral curls that I enjoyed last couple days on brand new Sago palm fronds are all disappearing into transformed wide straight fronds.  I touched the palm running my fingers through the soft baby fronds and they temporarily recurled, or recoiled at my touch. 4.30.2014
