Sow your seeds
On fertile soil;
That is what the wise
Foolish farmers will sow
Their seeds on barren land;
Whereas seeds that are sown
On fertile soil
Will grow and sprout
And yield abundant fruit;
But seeds that are sown
On barren land,
If at all they grow,
Are not sure to yield;
And if at all they yield,
Are not sure of abundant yields;
Be wise then when you sow;
And sow your seeds,
Not on barren land,
But on fertile soil;
To reap an abundant harvest
That will give you joy.
“The good you do today is like good seeds you sow during the planting season. As those seeds germinate and grow and produce crops or fruit that you harvest, so too shall the good you do today grow and flourish and bring you good that you reap tomorrow.” Romilia Quotes
I am in the fortunate position of looking considerably younger than I am. It is lovely, and I do what I can to keep it this way; face yoga, meditation, seeds in my porridge. Daily smoothies packed with ground seeds and powders. I also take about 14 different supplements every day.
Stepping into the business world as a young-looking person, however, is a different story. People struggle to support a young person, emotionally. It is a primal urge. I hold no judgement. Ageing is hard – hence the aforementioned daily routine.
I think compassion is the only way through it, for the young and old. We all have our struggles. Remember young people do not have the experience to understand their emotions yet. Growing up is a rough time. Likewise society persecutes us for ageing, despite all the experience and understanding and philosophising we offer.
“My heartfelt desire is that through inspiration,motivation and encouragement, I may sow seeds of love and possibility in the minds and hearts of others which will bear fruits for them for the rest of their lives and produce seeds which they will in turn sow in the minds and hearts of others.” Romilia Quotes
You prepare the soil best for planting;
You get the best seeds you can for planting;
At the best time, you do your planting;
You manure, weed and mulch after your planting;
Surely, you will reap best from your planting;
Do the same with your dreams in life;
You shall like the fruits you reap.
