A lesson


When gardeners plant seeds, …they don’t doubt that the seeds will grow into plants

And gardeners don’t get lost in their attachment to the result;

they know the result is the there

this principle in nature is do less, accomplish more.

the law of least effort.

Trust in nature’s infinite organizing power is an important

component of the state of grace.

gardeners plant seeds and then let go

It’s the same thing for you.

Have a goal in your awareness, give it your attention,

and have no doubt.

Be effortless about it, and the desire will manifest.

-Deepak Chopra

It's good advice. I don't know if I can follow it, but it is good advice.

He forgot:

But make sure that if you plant tomatoes that you cover them or at least poke holes in the bottom of the containers because if it rains it all just turns into mud and those friggin things either won't grow or they'll grow really big and mushy and they don't taste very good.

True story.
