This is a 30-day program based on the teachings of Buddha and Jesus. The main idea of the book is Buddha’s teaching “when conditions are sufficient there is a manifestation.” The focus is on creating and living the conditions because working on them manifest what we want.
To achieve it, the program works on past, present and future through different exercises and journaling that Janet Conner calls deep soul writing.
The process ends with the creation of a mandala with our desires and conditions and how to keep it going for the rest of the year. The meaning of the mandala is fully explained and how Jung was interested in them.
The Lotus and the Lily is useful as a roadmap, a reminder. This program is a personal and unique process for everyone, and can be done anytime.

The lotus and the lily: Access the wisdom of Buddha and Jesus to nourish your beautiful, abundant life
Published by Conari Press, 2012
From the bestselling author of Writing Down Your Soul comes a new book based on the teachings of Jesus and Buddha about how to create an abundant life by focusing your attention on your connection with the vibrant presence of the divine within. The Lotus and the Lily offers a new 30-day program for accessing your true creativity, breakthrough thinking, and divine guidance. Janet Conner continues her unique method of deep soul writing by showing readers how to exit their conscious minds, get in touch with their authentic selves, and activate the voice of wisdom within.
The Lotus and the Lily reveals:
- The cosmic power of the intention mandala to reveal the life you want
- Soul Slinky waves of intention and gratitude
- Awaken your inner shaman
- Discover the power of naming your past and your future
- How to experience the generative power of your own voice.
Each day includes prompts for reading, reflection, writing, exploring, and nourishing one’s soul writing. Each week Janet Conner takes the reader through a program of rich exploration.For those seeking the riches that lie beyond the popular explanation of the Law of Attraction, The Lotus and the Lily cracks the abundance code by linking the wisdom of the inner voice with the surprising parallel teachings of Buddha and Jesus. In a profound yet simple program, Conner sheds radical new light on the “Great Paradox of Prosperity” and redirects readers from asking for things to creating the receptive conditions that nourish a bountiful life.
Feeding the spiritual hunger for transformative living, Janet Conner teaches us how to hear the spiritual masters with fresh ears, explore the deep intelligence of our own soul, create brand new prosperity practices, and integrate those practices into our daily lives.
