My garden is inspiration for me in countless ways. But one virtue I constantly am working to master is patience. In the urgency of the modern world, patience can feel difficult or forgotten. The true wisdom, however, is to slow down and be mindful. Trust the seasons. Our own timing. The process. In our garden, we mainly plant from seed and that very process of watching seeds sprout, grow, blossom, and then turn into a rainbow of harvest is a meditation on patience, nourishment, and taking care of the living things around us. By giving our garden love, we learn that there is no way to rush great things like a brandy wine tomato plant. And they are worth the wait. So today, the meditation is patience with the seeds and our hearts and the processes that ask for just a little more than we feel naturally inclined to feel patient with. To lean in and give them just that much more space.
