Sometimes it is about putting in the time. We make investment in ourselves, family, and societies. We pour our blood into projects that we care about. We spend countless hours in the hopes of achieving our goals. Sometimes we set them too high, others too low. We take chances, or we play it safe. In the end we can say at least we tried.
I like to think back on what I learned from Yoda as he was instructing Luke in the ways of the force, “Don’t try! Do!” It is easy to say. It just rolls off the lips and out into the world. Again, it takes putting that vibration into practice. Making it routine. Making it part of our lives. Eventually a tree planted, and cared for will bring forth fruit in its due season.
The heat of summer is fading. The battered leaves are falling, some are changing colors that survived the typhoon. The red firecrackers are making their last bloom, and fruit is hanging from some trees.
Put in the work. Work on your dreams. Squeeze the obstacles that block your path into juice. Bring forth that red fruition.
