When I think of the transition our species is undergoing, I see the image of a pale yellow rosebud, not opened yet but just beginning to open, a very beautiful stage of the rose.  This rosebud is surrounded by a pool of soft, brilliant light, and the transmission behind the image is one of clarity and freshness; it speaks of the new life that's unfolding amid the vast cultural shift we’re all going through. 

The rosebud represents the deeper truth that most of us don’t see or perceive yet. We see the chaos and the confusion, and we see what feels like a lot of darkness in the outer events that surround us.  And yet the truth of what’s happening is this freshness and beauty we see in the rose, perfect potential that is just getting ready to start opening. It lives in the light and the warmth and benevolence of greater reality. 

The rosebud in its pool of light is a symbol of where we're at as a planetary organism in this transition.  We’re not a tight little green bud that hasn’t even begun to show petal color, we’re actually a fully formed bud that’s already begun to open into that welcoming light.

Sometimes it’s hard to believe there’s even a bud on the thorny bush of our manmade world, and yet in truth we’ve come all this way already.  It’s good to remember that just as the rosebud will follow the path of its destiny, in the same way we as a planetary organism will blossom in our fullness.
