My dear friend, Kay, recently posted on facebook this sweet photo of a daisy. I love daisies…always have. And I really like Kay’s, with its delicate simplicity and multiple layers of elongated white petals, shining brightly against the rich variety of green vegetation in the background.

And yet when you view a daisy up close, its center is quite complex with its spirals (fibonacci sequence) of little yellow orbs (mandalas). It’s really quite lovely.

When a daisy appears in one of my mandala readings, I understand them to represent unconditional love. While the rose usually represents a more romantic love, the daisy for me is about the universal love for all that is.

And while the rose has thorns as way to protect itself, the daisy allows itself to be fully out there, innocent, wide open and totally vulnerable to the world…happy to share its beauty with everyone who stops to appreciate it.

We may use the daisy in a child-like game to determine if someone loves us or not; however, the daisy reminds us that it loves us all…without question.

Happy Coloring!
