Farmers


Some farmers are very skilled, others not so. Some fail because they give up too quickly. A good farmer has patience. If you plant rice, rice will grow. If you plant corn, you will reap corn. If you plant anxiety, anxiety will grow. You must take great care in planting. Anxiety comes from many things; ignorance, fear, ego. There are those that seek to take advantage of our fears for their own benefit. However, if we use tools of ancient wisdom, we can plant seeds of Tao and then reap them. This will preclude any weeds of anxiety from growing. It will rain just enough for a fertile field, not too much to drown the seeds, not too little to promote drought. We can take care of our fields. Our crop can be a bountiful harvest of peace and knowing. Nothing tastes better to the palette.
