There’s nothing wrong with sowing the same seeds you’ve always sown, as long as you are happy getting the same results. And there is nothing wrong with the same results. Gardeners, people, gain comfort from sameness. Sameness is our anchor, allowing us to stay safely close to the shores we’re familiar with.
But what if we just once decided to sow different seeds, casting sameness aside and lifting up the anchor to let ourselves drift to another shore? Would we see something there that provided even more comfort than the sameness of the same ol’ seeds?
How do we find out what it is like to sow those different seeds?
By reading about what happened to others who chose different seeds?
By imaging what could happen?
Yes, we could do that. Some people call those dreams.
Or by actually sowing different seeds?
To really understand how it is to sow different seeds, we must actually do it.
“Before the seed there comes the thought of bloom.” – E. B. White
