Each undertaking is first a seed. The goal of a yoga practice is a seed.
The goal of making breakfast every morning is a seed.
the goal of running every week or telling your lover she is beautiful every day, these are seeds too.
Within this analogy fit an infinity of other ideas we have about
what we might do with our time.
When you take the first step in doing one of those things, whether a yoga class or a hearty breakfast, you’ve planted the seed.
As you continue, you are nourishing that seed. eventually it sprouts and grows, and the more that practice is nurtured, the more resilient it becomes.
Practices that are nurtured for years are strong, resilient; they have a sense of self, of purpose. They happen of their own; their nurturing requires no stress, no thought, no mind.
Your life is a garden.
