Your heart should be like a lily pad, rooted deeply and hidden beneath the waves. Where it meets the surface, it should be beautiful like those that ornament the water. Your heart should match the pattern of the surface, dipping and rising to stay at peace. Your heart does not need to be displayed proudly or wear the jewels of the insecure. No, your heart must be pure and sweet and living, humble and peaceful and loving, the wonders of the lily pad. If it is all these, just beneath the surface will float the softest, gentlest heart.
