"When you plant seeds in the garden, you don't dig them up every day to see if they have sprouted yet. You simply water them and clear away the weeds; you know that the seeds will grow in time."
This inspiring teaching by Thubten Chodron, a Buddhist nun, reminds us to cultivate patience and faith in our lives. When we trust that all is as it should be, there is no need to feel impatient or wish things to be different. We simply need to give our seeds a good start and provide them with the persistent follow-up care they will need, and then trust that the seeds that will bear fruit and healing for us will grow.
Wishing you joy, abundance, Happy Spring and happy planting!
