Pimelea linifolia, the slender rice flower, combats narrow viewpoints and undue pride. It is inappropriate to feel superiority and pride when comparing oneself to other individuals, ethnic, religious or national groups.
The remedy promotes humility, and enables us to see the beauty in those around us. As J. Allen Boone says, we are all part of the "cosmic orchestra." Each instrument must be accorded due respect and understanding. Group harmony and cooperation are powerful forces for good.
The message of this flower is that we are all one; when we judge or hurt others, no matter how different they appear, we are really judging and hurting ourselves.
The Slender Rice Flower is associated with the Root Chakra and the emotional and causal planes.
