Eight Degrees of Wisdom

The flower above caught my eye from a distance. Its puffy green centre and its eight silky petals boasts an unusual sight, even for the eye that is constantly on the look out for beauty. Its name remains a mystery to me but perhaps we can call the flower ‘Prudence’ until we know better. Like the notes of a musical octave, the plant reveals the likeness of a galaxy, as above so below.

“Wherever you turn, wisdom speaks to you through the imprint it has stamped upon its works…. Look at the sky, the earth, and the sea, and at whatever in them shines from above or crawls, flies, or swims below. These have form because they have number.” – Augustine

Love & light,

  1. Nice quote from Augustine Jason. Beautiful picture! It is a Eryngium giganteum, giant sea holly, Miss Wilmott’s ghost and it belonging to the family called apiaceae. 🙂
