The farmer’s life is one of great patience.
Sowing seeds does not result in instantaneous miracles.
Although, when the first seeds sprout and break through the ground
It certainly feels like one, (which of course it is).
We just do not get to see what has been going on,
Microscopically, beneath the surface of the earth.
Sow people! Beloved ones!
What do you want to see more of in your lives?
Don’t be surprised at the fiery ordeals that come your way.
They expose the unwanted seeds of destruction.
Instead, cooperate with the fire and let it burn away
Focus on the good seed at hand:
Love, joy, peace, kindness, wisdom, patience and
All the good things you see and desire.
It’s one act or response at a time.
Living is becoming.
Life does not stay stagnant,
We move forward in one direction or the other.
We get to choose by our sowing
Which way we want to grow.
