#1293 - possibility and care
Two weeks ago, I wrote about patience and love, two essential factors in achieving fulfilment in life. Patience to go all the way to a destination that is often invisible. And love for every step of the journey.
Last few days, I realized that two other factors play a vital role in the journey to fulfilment: possibility and care.
I remember observing my garden and realizing that plants bloom when they are ready. They are never in a hurry to fulfil their destiny.
And I can push them to go faster.
The only thing I have to do is to create the possibility and then take care of it.
I must prepare the soil and sow the seed.
Each seed is a hidden promise. Within it, there is the whole plant in potential.
Will that potential manifest and the promise be fulfilled?
That depends on many factors, most outside my power or influence.
What I can do is take care of that seed.
I can protect it from the cold, fertilize the soil, and give water when needed.
So when the plan is ready to fulfil its destiny, I will reap the fruits.
That is my practice these days.
Create the possibility, take care of it, have patience and love the journey.
