The Rose and the Grail
Both these symbols suggest the receptive vessel of the soul, opening to receive the in-pouring of Divine influence.
~Just as the rose consists of many petals held together, so the person
who attains to the unfoldment of the soul begins to show many different
qualities. The qualities emit fragrance in the form of a spiritual
personality. The rose  has a beautiful structure, and the personality
which proves the unfoldment  of the soul has also a fine structure, in
manner, in dealing with others,  in speech, in action. The atmosphere of
a spiritual being pervades the air like the perfume of a rose.~
Hazrat Inayat Khan
