If you were born a seed, you already have embedded inside you the essence of who you are supposed to be, despite your circumstances, your education, your “luck” or lack thereof.
If you were born a lemon seed, you already have inside you the sweet&sour flavor of the fruit, the heavenly aroma of lemon blossom, the delicious bitterness of its rind. You are the essence of a beautiful healthy orchard.
The problem starts when we want to become something we are not; when you were born a lemon seed and you want to become… a broccoli?!
I might love broccoli, but that doesn’t mean I have to become one.
Are you ill? Going through divorce? Feeling stuck in your life? The challenges we face in life may feel unfair, too difficult to deal with, too big to face… though all challenge is compost for the lemon tree to sprout, to root, to break ground and come into existence. And you know shit is compost, right?
