Wisdom From the Seed

Stumbled upon this in a magazine leaving the co-op this evening…

“The seed cannot know what is going to happen, the seed has never known the flower. And the seed cannot even beleive that he has the potentiality to become a beautiful flower. Long is the journey, and it is always safer not to go on that journey because unknown is the path, nothing is guaranteed. Nothing can be guaranteed. Thousand and one are the hazards of the journey, many are the pitfalls-and the seed is secure, hidden inside a hard core. but the seed tries, it makes an effort; it drops the hard shell which is its security, it starts moving. Immediately the fight starts: the struggle with the soil, with the stones, with the rocks. And the seed was very hard and the sprout will be very, very soft and dangers will by many. There was no danger for the seed, the seed could have survived for millenia, but for the sprout many are the dangers. But the sprout starts towards the unknown, towards the sun, towards the source of light, not knowing where, not konwing why, but a dream possesses the seed and thes seed moves. The same is the path for man. It is arduous. Much courage will be needed” – Osho

believe in your seed :)
