Plant a seed

I'm sure you've picked up a dandilion after it has turned to seed (but perhaps you didn't know it is called a dandelion clock). And perhaps only as a child, blown the seeds about, letting them take flight on the faintest wisp of air, some carried near, some far, all eventually landing and waiting patiently for a little water and a little soil, to begin the magic journey once again. From just one of those tiny seeds, and entire new plant will emerge if the conditions are right, and perhaps continue on ad infinitum. Fields can become a mass of dandelions thanks to this process.

And so can you. Plant a seed, that is. Every thought we share with another has the potential of that dandelion seed. If the conditions are right, that seed might just emerge as a new idea or concept in the mind of another person, and from that, perhaps additional (otherwise unimagined) thoughts might be shared with yet others for subsequent blossoming. That is an awesome power -- that potential. I certainly hope you are sharing thoughts and ideas that you would want to propogate throughout the world. The potential really is there. Just in a single seed. This process is the miracle called life. Good planting.
