All the flowers of all the tomorrows are in the seeds of today.—Proverb
Today we plant seeds in the soil. Tomorrow we water the soil in the pot. We don’t expect the seeds to grow flowers in a day. We watch while waiting patiently. We check the soil for dryness. We imagined how the plant would bloom into a flower. But we only see dirt in a pot. We make sure there is enough sunlight. After a month, we still see nothing but dirt in the pot. We wonder if is there anything we can do more. Should we give it more water or add more soil? However, we forget it takes time for a seed to start growing into a plant and the plant has to grow through thick soil. The plant is growing against thick soil and gravity. This is all happening in the soil. We don’t know if this is happening because it’s an unseen progress. We continue to water because we have an expectation and an image in mind what it would look. We stay with this image by attending to the pot every day or every other day until the imagined flowers in our mind become real.
