  1. You should water the root, because it is the root that can really absorb the water. But, if you water the flower 🌺, *dramatic pause* you could give it a touch of beautiful dewdrops. πŸ’¦

  2. Water symbolises Divine Love and it is the root or the core which needs to be filled with for us to grow. Watering the outside does not achieve much like a shower cleans the exterior, but we need deep cleanse from the root from the soul outward.

        The cases are rising rapidly, which was expected considering India’s poulation, but recovery rate has risen a lot as well. Death rate is low.

  3. To me this means…
    When you tell someone there pretty, they feel temporarily good. Right? It’s a boost of confidence! But it doesn’t last forever. However, when you tell someone about God. It goes deep. They won’t forget.. it comes back to them because their spirit knows it’s truth!

  4. For the flower to grow and blossom, it has to tap from available resources (water and nutrients) which can be gotten from the root. In the same way as individuals, we can only grow when we tap from available resources e.g books via our roots (our mentality).

  5. Never thought about that! ❀
    It’s a really interesting and powerful thought..
    May be when we try to achieve something we often get frustrated and give up too easily because we can’t see the instant results but forget that consistency is the key!
    We need to keep watering our dreams consistently with hardwork to turn them into the flower we want to reach 🌊🌹

      Yes. We just have to keep on the process of watering our dreams. Then we will grow from a plant 🌱 to a tree 🌳

      Yeah, every beautiful tree we see was once a delicate sapling. But the sapling was consistent and determine and it got to becoming a tree.

  6. There is no growth in wisdom without a firmly rooted foundation. We can blossom in many different and sometimes surprising ways, but the roots must remain doggedly set. Otherwise, instead of growing in wisdom, we simply float with the prevailing winds of change.

  7. Usually it’s the root that transports the water to the rest of the plant.
    So if you water the root, it’s able to provide nutrient to the rest of the plant so that they’re able to do their own jobs.

    Whereas, if you water the flower, yes, you’ve washed of the dirt and given it shine. You’ve succeeded in helping the flower look pretty while also neglecting the rest of the plant.

    What good is it if just one part benefits while the others suffer ? πŸ‘€πŸ‘€
    ** plus, watering the flower doesn’t even help the flower functionally, it just helps it look prettier 😭😭

    I hope I made sense πŸ˜‚πŸ˜­

      β€œwatering the flower doesn’t even help the flower functionally, it just helps it look prettier” That got me πŸ˜‚

      I really love how you approached it. You approached it with wisdom and thoughtfulness.

      The root is the basis. If the root is not taken care of, the outward beauty of the plant will wither.

  8. Flowers are the result of healthy roots. To have a healthy flower we need to water the root. Roots are like our mind and heart we water it with peace and avoid negativity and hate, our happiness flower blooms healthily. ✨

  9. Hi Vincent. Here’s my take.😍 For me, the flower symbolizes our body. The root symbolizes our soul. You water the root so that it can serve you. Feed our soul with good thoughts, positive energy so it will bloom and will give us strength. When it lacks nourishment it becomes weak. When the soul is weak, the body becomes weak too because it is a reflection of our inner strength. Therefore, the root is our foundation. Godbless!

  10. I’ve never thought of it this way! As a linguistics nerd, I am super interested in the way that saying phrases in a particular but unintentional way reflects how we actually think about them. We say that we water the flower because we want the flower to stay pretty for a long time, but flowers are ephemeral and superficial. Watering the roots makes the whole plant strong and stable and ultimately gives it the potential to flower more and for longer. What a good metaphor for life!

    1. Hmmm πŸ€”

      This is truly deep. Because of the beauty that the flowers hold, we must make sure that the roots are well watered and taken care of.

      Watering the roots indeed gives the flower the potential to flower more and have a longer lifespan

  11. My take on this is that if you water the root you give the entire body the opportunity to grow. If you only water the flower, only that portion can grow. Watering the root allows the most opportunity for beautiful growth 🌱🌻

    1. This is lovely 😊

      I’v learnt 2 lessons from this about opportunities.

      1. In life, we do things that allows only a portion of ourselves to grow

      2. We tackle the roots that allows us to be at the peak of our growth and brings bigger opportunities to shine

      You can see that you’ve really inspired me with your comment. Thanks very much πŸ€—

  12. The root is the most important because it is what gives life to the plant. So let’s relate this to real life, we have to deal with problems from the main source( power source) not just the outcomes(things that follow). Let’s take the plants for example, when you cut a tree and leave the stump, the tree will grow back. But if you uproot the tree that’s the end. So if we have challenges we should focus on what brought about the challenge and that’s the root and that way the problem can be solved.
    On the positive side, we should have a strong desire to achieve what we want and that is the desire we should keep fueling(watering) because it’s like the root of a plant and that way, the desire won’t burn out and we’ll achieve our goals.

    1. Wow 🀩 this is a really wonderful and insightful explanation.

      And you have really really enlightened me with this.

      Yes, we have challenges that we are facing, but if we can focus on the roots, we can overcome them.

      Likewise focusing on the roots of our goals and achievements. Just like you said, the desire won’t burn out and we’ll achieve our goals

      Thanks so much for this ❀️
