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. Even now Lilies are given to commemorate a couple’s 30th wedding anniversary.
But there is another aspect to this beautiful flower to keep in mind.
Today 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.
Today the Lily blooms before you with a simple message — appreciate beauty when and where you can because the sweetness you find in this life is forever fleeting. Physical beauty, like all else, will eventually (and inevitably) fade away.
So celebrate today like it’s the last day of your life. And let those closest to you know just how much you feel for them. Before it’s too late.
“I get those fleeting, beautiful moments of inner peace and stillness – and then the other 23 hours and 45 minutes of the day, I’m a human trying to make it through in this world.”
~ Ellen DeGeneres
