It’s great to observe the growth of plant.
There are so many precious lesson being taught by nature.
When you are mindfulness and awake, you can see a lot of beautiful Dharma.
I started planting chili plants a year ago, facing a great challenges before seeing the result.
Numerously, the plant half dead and its able to make it possible to survive.
I am truly happy when I saw the 1st chili, I talked to the plant every day.
“You look awesome, Thank you for the great chili!”
It became a habit that every morning before I go to work, I say hi to my lovely chili plants.
It’s a great way to cheer up our life!
Based on my observation of the chili plant, it took more than 1 month plus for the ripening process which the chili still remain in green color.
However, to change from green to red color, the fully ripen, only need about 2-3 days.
Look at the time needed, the process and the ripen process.
It’s awaken me that how close we can be to our success, but we intend to give up easily before the final step.
Think about it, whatever incident happen in life!
Our studies, hobbies, exam, working life, relationship, assignment, project, spiritual practice, …..
Are we able to sustain or to continue our spirit until we achieve our aim?
Sometimes, we are just a few steps distance to enjoy the success, like the ripening of chili from green color to red color.
Without persistence, there is impossible to see the beautiful red chili.
Besides, sometimes, we might totally neglect or ignore the process but fully focus on the result.
We might miss out the beautiful moment along the process.
“It is better to travel well than to arrive” By Buddha
Just like observing the growing process of the chili.
It’s a great lesson from my lovely chili plant!
Enjoy the process of life, Be persistence! Be Diligent!
“Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death.”
