Lathraea Squamaria

Lathraea Squamaria is a plant that looks like the others,with tiny, pale red flowers.But it is ordinary plant.

It is a parasitic plant living on the roots of a range of woody plants, on which it is dependent for its nutrition. This plant does not have green leaves. But that’s why it has a big root.

She lives in most cases  at the root of the beech .She  does not perform synthesis. A perennial root parasite that lacks chlorophyll  (the  green  pigment  that  allows plants to obtain energy from light) and remains below ground for most of the year. Essential nutrients are obtained from the energy of her host. She can steal the host’s genes.

This plant is a parasite. She can not  survive independently.But this feature does not belong only to plants.

This plant reminds me of people who feed themselves with the energy of other people, with their  fear. So called haters. They are like Lathraea Squamaria. They feed with fear and negative energy. They are always here, around us, with small pale bodies and big a large energy vacuum cleaner. They are always here to tell you, that you are average, that you are nothing special, that you will failed, that you have to give up on what you do.

Do you think these people have green and healthy leaves? Do they have an own life, do they know what is positive attitude , or do they know  what is an open mind !? I don’t think so.

They are poison for your soul, and your fear is their only food. They need you, they need your insecurity.But be careful.They  can be people close to you.Your friends, cousins, neighbors.

They are here, and you can not change them.You can change only one person, and that is you. You do not have to fight them, because it’s a futile job, you will spend your energy only.You do not need to pay attention to them,you do not need to think about them.

In fact, they should be your road sign that you are on the right path.The more you have them,  the greater the chance are that you’re on the right track.

If you have one opinion,and other people, another opinion,your opinion is probably correct, because you can’t find such a large consensus of thoughts in one place.

Be yourself, listen your brain, listen your heart,you know all answers, you are the great answer.Here , you can find a big support for your deeds, and I will be here always to tell you, You Can Do It !!!

Once in a time, I have discovered that we are, humans,we are walking universe. That we create our own destiny. After that, nothing was the same !

  1. A very erudite and important post, the haters should be pitied as they are externalising and projecting the rot within themselves rather than accepting and dealing with it. Thus are they doomed to misery for the reality is it’s elements within themselves they truly hate .

    • Hello Nigel,

      I hope you are fine. I believe that haters are our obstacle on our way to dreams.Every human gets as much burden as he can carry,and haters are certainly our burden. We must ignore them, to have a better life. You describe them well !

      Thank you so much for your comment

  2. I have the ability to look beyond the hate to see the emptiness and fear. I do not allow those that are heavy with dark to latch on to me but rather I rise above them in order to shine down upon them light of Love. I also when guided to do so, close the door to those who are adamant in wallowing in their darkness. I choose not to allow them to pollute my life! Great post, Ben! Thank you!

    • Hello Amy,

      you have a great attitude regarding haters.Darkness is nothing but the absence of light, and when you look at on that way, I must say that we need a small amount of light to shine a big room.Light always has more power than dark. We can help those people with our positive energy, but the best way is to ignore them 🙂

  4. Being aware of the parasites who try to attach at our roots is important. I don’t want any of those parasites around me – so I look for friends who nourish, love, and allow me to be ME (and think ME is just right). 🙂

    • Hello Mo,

      in life you have two choices:
      – to be positive or,
      – to be negative.

      That is all you need to do . To chose right side.And that is positive side 🙂

  6. I used to be frustrated that I could not change other people. Now I know it’s not my place and focus on positive changes in myself instead. Wonderful use of the plant to demonstrate your point in this post, Ben!

    • Hello Christy,

      you said it great.That is so true,because the only person you can change is you.People are trying persistently to change other people instead of turning to themselves.The greatest discovery of all time is that a person can change his future by merely changing his attitude. Oprah Winfrey

    • Hello,

      people are sometimes very cruel, and they use heavy words, and word is like a sword ,cuts and hurts.But we can not influence on them and their words, we can only influence on us,and we must try to accept the words in the best way,not to let them to hurt us.

      Thank you
