Planting Seeds

Sequoia National Park 2018

The season of failure is the best time for sowing the seeds of success.


Paramahansa Yogananda

Recently I have been meditating on the seeds I want to plant for this new year. The promise of spring is whispering in our ears. Even with the snow I know eventually it will melt and flowers will soon grow. During a ritual that was dedicated to the beginning of spring we focused on the seeds we want to plant. May it be one or several. One of mine that tied in nicely with a previous meditation is the seed of competence. I am moving forward not relying on the past to be my teacher but the present. There were many successes as well as failures in my past. What may seem negative or failure is actually the soil that my seed grows in. I bow my head in gratitude.

“I am capable.”

I am capable of confidence.

I am capable of joy.

I am capable of unconditional love.

So many additions to this sentence of being capable. That is exactly why I chose it. Knowing this one seed will sprout a tree that will bear even more seeds.

I would like to know: what are you planting?
