What Is Inside Of You?
Ever seen a seed grow? Witness it for it teaches true wisdom of what it is not giving up.
Truly observe a seed when it is planted in soil. It does not complain if it is planted in desert, rain or mud. It does not care if its in favorable or harsh soil, his focus is not that. That is one mistake we do. We focus much of our failures on the conditions we are born or placed in, but not the plant. It has not time to waste on pity thoughts because it will not allow it to grow and sprout from dirt to life.
Once it’s fully conscious of where it is it begins to move upward. It opens up its shell, tugs and twist struggling through never noticing or paying attention how hard and stiff the soil is. All it sees is surroundings full of rocks, dirt, insects and more. But does it not worry about that it is not the flower’s purpose.
The flower begins to reach to the top because it has purpose. It wants to reach the sunlight to feed and grow. Its whole journey in life is to reach the top of the soil and witness the sun’s glory everything else for the flower is meaningless. It does not see the rigid hard soil as an obstacle for its already determine to reach above.
It does not complain like humans do. It stretches it’s stems, grows its roots farther and firming to the ground to gain stability and moves it head left and right avoiding anything that will hinder it’s success.
As he wiggles and turns he finds he’s stuck, but looks around because he has reached a point where he cannot go on anymore. It begins to grow downward, his stem bends due to the rocks, soil and lack of water, but it reminds itself of its purpose and he reaches for whatever is available around him. He finds vitamins, minerals, fertilizer and more.
We are a flower
In life we must push and wiggle through life despite the conditional surrounds, but just like the flower we push through. Just like the flower as it pushes itself vertically it might come across a rock and hinder its path, but it doesn’t stop there. It grows another shoot and goes around it and if it’s that strong cuts through the rock devouring it completely. When have you done that in your life?
The flower must also fend from enemies and anything that will crush his hopes and dreams, but grows a callous tough skin. Others grow thorns in order to make it. There is no thought in the flower for it to give up and die.
We must learn from plants. Ever witness how tough plants are, we cut them, they grow back. We destroy it’s leaf, they turn brown and days later it sprouts another. It never gives ups. We have the same potentiality we can grow when we stopped, we can grow when we are down and more. We are tougher than we seem.
For a flower life is never over until it stops fighting for its life.
Never give up on your hopes and dreams no matter what kind of dirt you have to grow up in.
