There are always seeds waiting to be planted, but they need to be in the right place, in the right soil, when the right thing is going on. A seed is a sign of hope, not an expectation.No habit or quality is more easily acquired than hypocrisy, nor any thing sooner learned than to deny the sentiments of our hearts and the principle we act from: but the seeds of every passion are innate to us, and nobody comes into the world without them.As our parents planted for us, so will we plant for our children. When Charlie and I began our philanthropic journey, we wanted to focus our resources on planting seeds that would help perpetuate Jewish values and traditions for future generations and also contribute to repairing our world.Change is a continuous process. You cannot assess it with the static yardstick of a limited time frame. When a seed is sown into the ground, you cannot immediately see the plant. You have to be patient. With time, it grows into a large tree. And then the flowers bloom, and only then can the fruits be plucked.
These positive quotes let you know that planting seeds of love, knowledge, determination, hard work will always reap you success, and happiness in life. Just like a seed slowly grows with sunlight, air, soil and water, similarly our minds when seeded with positive thoughts and guided by teachers, knowledge, and patience will bloom into beautiful minds.Charity bestowed upon those who are worthy of it is like good seed sown on a good soil that yields an abundance of fruits. But alms given to those who are yet under the tyrannical yoke of the passions are like seed deposited in a bad soil. The passions of the receiver of the alms choke, as it were, the growth of merits.Fall is not the end of the gardening year; it is the start of next year's growing season. The mulch you lay down will protect your perennial plants during the winter and feed the soil as it decays, while the cleaned up flower bed will give you a huge head start on either planting seeds or setting out small plants.
Seeds are metaphors for tender new ideas or possibilities. When we bury the ‘seed’ our faith needs to step in to remind us it takes time for new things to grow. As we continue to tend the idea/seed, we use our imagination to envision it growing and bearing fruit. We must be willing to let the seed have the time and room it needs to grow. Patience, persistence and focus are important. Imagine your life is a garden. What would you like to grow? A great job or business? A happy relationship? Children? Special goals and dreams? Planting ‘idea seeds’ can start the process. Your action, energy and enthusiasm will do the rest.“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. Similarly, just do your daily practice and cultivate a kind heart. Abandon impatience and instead be content creating the causes for goodness; the results will come when they’re ready.” ~ Thubten Chodron (Source: www.overallmotivation.com)
