The Buddha, The Dharma, The Sangha

"Spiritual powers and their wondrous functioning--hauling water and carrying firewood." --Layman Pang, upon his realization

When you plant seeds in the garden, you don't dig them up every day to see if they have sprouted yet.  You simply water them and clear away the weeds; you know that the seeds will grow in time.  Similarly, just do your daily practice and cultivate a kind heart.  Abandon impatience and instead be content creating the causes for goodness; the results will come when they're ready.

--Thubten Chodron, "Meditator's Toolbox"

I needed thread this, a wonderful reminder. I pray I am strong and patient enough to let the " work" happen without my interference.
