The Unfolding of a Rose pays tribute to the late Meta Rose Fluker-Yett. It expresses her concept of life, activity, and love of people. For over 17 years, she dedicated her life to connecting people with fashion, design, business acumen and man's humanity to man. These ingredients define the foundation of our mission. As we reach out to people around the world, the force behind this outreach is the continuous unfolding of love, respect, kindness and impartiality. Many avenues will be explored, opportunities sort, and successes achieved. The Unfolding of a Rose represents the unfolding of ideas in human consciousness.
What is spirituality? It is one's divine connection--man's oneness with God--the inner soul or spiritual sense that serves as the foundation of thought, word and deed. Without it, one wanders in a sea of misconception, illusion, and spiritual imbalance. Spiritual awareness leads to higher levels of thought, grace, and revelation. It lifts us to the joy that none can take away, the wealth of ideas that are constant, and the business of doing good.
At the age of five, Meta began piano lessons. The melodies of Bach, Beethoven and Brahms touched the core of her being and enabled her to reach into the souls of her listeners. As her fingers flew up and down the piano keyboard, one could see the transportation of her audience to a world of musical skill, artistic grace and inner peace. During recitals . . . Meta always "stole the show!"
Personal Development was the effect of Meta's growth in spirituality. Studying accounting in college, coupled with patience, persistence and perseverance, she established a successful retail business, added interior design to her mental reservoir and raised two beautiful children . . . Rahjinah and Raphael. Each person has a duty and obligation to develop spiritually and use that understanding to make his contribution to the world.
