"When we plant a rose seed in the earth, we notice that it is small, but we do not criticize it as "rootless and stemless". We treat it as a seed, giving it water and nourishment required of a seed. When it first shoots up out of the earth, we do not condemn it as immature and underdeveloped, nor we criticize the buds for not being open when they appear. We stand in wonder at the process taking place and give the plant the care it needs at each stage of its development. The rose is a rose from the time it is a seed to the time it dies. Within it, at all times, it contains its whole potential. It seems to be constantly in the process of change; yet at each stage, at each moment, it is [whole] as it is" (Gallwey, 1974).
I wish for you that you stand in wonder at the process of change that your life is and that you give yourself the care you need at each stage of your development, with the certainty that, at each moment you are whole and beautiful like a rose.
Happy Spring 2013!!!
