Chili plant…

Some of us, we might put a lot effort in doing something, with an objective to gain return from your effort,  the actual scenario might not be the same as what you expect.

You might be failed to achieve your objective.

How do you feel?

Are you easily give up?

Are you frustrated?

Are you angry?

Are you blame on your luck?

Are you blame on others when you are not doing well?

Are you continue your effort until you succeed?

Are you persistence?

Are you taking positive or negative approach?

All depend on you.

There is a famous quote from Thomas Edison,“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” 

My recent experience, My family and I, we try our best to plant Chili pepper at home.

We’ve try many method to grow chili plant throughout a year, there was no result at all, the chili plant being attacked by insect & died….

We are insisted to use organic farming method with no pesticides and also chemical fertilizer being used. It’s challenging yet we never give up.

I talked to the plant daily, “You look great, you can do well, let’s blossom and grow some chilies…”

I’ll do chanting whenever I watering the plant.

After a year of trying, we are extremely happy to see the result.

The chili plant is about 5 feet, look awesome and with many green chilies and yet to be ripe.

We planted the chili plant in pot outside our gate. We build a little garden outside our gate, grateful to the beautiful tree shade, all plants grow well now..

We’ve planted the chili plant in pot outside our gate. We build a little garden outside, grateful to the beautiful tree shade, all plants grow well now. we feel happiness and joy whenever we reach home. All plants are welcoming us with SMILE!

Look at the healthy chili. So beautiful! Imagine if you give up half way, can you achieve your goal?

The plant is not only benefit to us but all beings.. ants, grasshopper, bee, butterfly…. We can live in harmony with Ahimsa (non violence).

We've planted this chili plant for about a year, it's almost died and being attack by "". To rescue it, we cut all it's leaves, so glad it can make it and we can see the growing chili.

This is another Chili plant, about 1 feet plus….We’ve planted this chili plant for about a year, it’s almost died and being attack by “whitefly”. To rescue it, we cut all its leaves to let it re-grow. We are so glad, it can make it and we can see the growing chili.The great spirit for survival!  It’s awesome!

Think about the chili plant, before you give up in life. Life is full of challenges, it give us a great opportunity to grow stronger and be a better person.

Say YES to challenges!

Be diligent in your spiritual path.

You will see the result, “your self-development” which can benefit to you and people surrounding.

A better person will do better things for everybody!

  1. Thank you for your beautiful encouragement and heartfelt truth. What an amazing chili plant! Warm water with a drop of liquid soap can be used to wipe off the leaves to get rid of pests, and can also be sprayed onto the plant without causing harm. Cloves of garlic pushed into the soil around the edges of the pot might also help. Love to you and your family, and your beautiful chilies.
