Lessons from a plant
Life, much like the seeds of a plant, starts with a simple purpose: to flourish. As babies, there is an unresisted oneness with that purpose, but as we grow older our mind takes over and we lose faith in the path on which we travel, and often lose sight of our natural destiny.
Seeds are planted, and then without question, the germination process begins. A root base forms, and soon sprouts and grows towards the nourishing sun evolving into a beautiful plant with leaves, and, eventually, flowers.
Once one flower or leaf dies, the plant is not discouraged, or at a loss for a sense of self, it simply waits until it blossoms again. Even in the harshest of winters where death seems immanent, it retracts back to it’s roots until it can grow again—if again—with ease and undoubting trust in its purpose.
“Don’t let today’s disappointments cast a shadow on tomorrow’s dreams.” ~ Unknown
Seed: just for today, listen to your intuition and work towards achieving what you never thought you could. Be one with the process and you will be one with life.
How many dead flowers are you holding on to? Honor yourself and let them go, so you can flower again.
