The Lily has long been associated with humility, purity, innocence, devotion and fertility.
In the ancient Greek and Roman world, for example, brides typically wore a crown of lilies in the hopes of living a happy, fruitful life. And today Lilies are given to commemorate a 30th wedding anniversary.
But there is another aspect to this beautiful flower to keep in mind.
Lilies are most often associated with funerals. Perhaps they are given as a sign of undying devotion from loving family members left behind, or maybe they symbolize that the soul of the deceased has been restored to a state of purity and innocence. Whatever the case may be, there is something ephemeral to the captivating beauty of this flower.
The Lily reminds us that life is forever fleeting, and that physical beauty will eventually (and inevitably) fade away.

Some questions to guide your meditation:
- To whom (or what) are you devoted?
- Is there someone in your life you are currently taking for granted?
- Right now is there something you need to let go of or surrender?
