The work is inspired from a Buddhist study which uses the metaphor of Cherry Plum Peach and Damson as a metaphor for life. The study has three main points.
1. Don’t give up
It implies that Winter will always turn to spring, no matter how hard, cold and harsh the sufferings of life get don’t give up know that winter will always turn to spring that change is inevitable.
2. Equal Potential
That all people have the right to flower, to reveal their true potential as human beings, to fulfil there mission in this world. You have the right and so does everyone else.
3. Celebrate Diversity
It’s important to respect that everyone is different, we possess unique individuality and different ways of living which in turn informs our unique singular mission in this world. By mission I am referring to our unique way in which we can add value to our world, to encourage, and to support all life.
