becoming exactly yourself
i like to meditate on the idea that a seed has one purpose on this earth: to become. it contains all of the intelligence it could ever need in order to become exactly what it is meant to be. an artichoke. an orchid. a cedar tree. once it gets growing it has an incredible capacity to face the challenges inherent in becoming on this earth. the seedling will adapt, evolve, and continue to grow.
as humans, we’re not so different from the seed— we face challenges on our journey to creating a meaningful and fulfilling life, on our journey to becoming exactly ourselves, and we also contain a depth of intelligence to help get us there.
