As a species, we are not very patient. If injured, we try to heal oursevles faster than the wound can comprehend. If heartbroken, we can sometimes rush to find comfort in another's arms. If lost, we compile maps, guidebooks and a compass to find our way once again.
Today, atttempt patience. Like the tree who waits until late spring to bloom, simply wait for what is to come. Watch a plant if you can today. Rather than blooming at the first clearing of frost from the season, the plant knows that it's not the right time to reveal its flowers. It holds on until the worms are busy in the warm ground and the bees are flying overhead and only then does the plant attempt to bloom.
