37/100 Days of Seeds of Light

How does one plant seeds of light, you ask?

Oh that’s a good question.  :)

Step one, Prepare the soil and find the seed:  Open your eyes, your mind, your heart, your *attention* to the possibility of goodness.  Look for little things - buds on the trees, the feeling of the sun on your skin, a favorite shirt - start small.

Step two, Place the seed in the ground:  Pause - for just a moment - to give your attention to the seed you’ve found, no matter how small.  You are making a space for the seed to settle in and start to grow.

Step three, Water the soil and let the sun shine in:  Speak about the goodness.  Tell a friend or a co-worker or a stranger on the street.  Or send an email.  Tweet it or take a picture.  Or simply write it down or say it out loud to yourself, for yourself.  Giving words to the goodness gives the seed the water and sunlight it needs to begin to grow.

Do this every day.  As many times each day as you’d like, though once is fine.  Pretty soon you’ll have a garden.
