“The first recognition of beauty was one of the most significant events in the evolution of human consciousness. The feelings of joy and love are intrinsically connected to the recognition. Without our fully realising it, flowers would become for us an expression in form of that which is most high, most sacred, and ultimately formless within ourselves. Flowers, more fleeting, more ethereal, more delicate than the plants out of which they emerged, would become like messengers from another realm, like a bridge between the world of physical forms and the formless” (Tolle, E., 2005, p.3)
