In the past three weeks I have been witnessing the miracle of Nature, a joy that I now share with you.
I spread grass seed in the garden, the half which was bare soil. I never had done this before and had no idea how to do it and what to expect, so I read the instructions on the box and used the knowledge I gathered by asking others and my own common sense and came up with a strateqy.
I did spread the little seeds on the soil with disbelief, no, that is not the right word. I did believe that the seeds will turn to grass, but as had never done it before or seen it done I had this doubt that if I have I done everything right?
Well, I did spread the seed and as per instructions on the box I was expecting to see grass starting to poke out of the ground in four days.
Nothing happened, I could see the seeds exactly as they were in the box thinking wether I have done something wrong. But I did not loose hope and for another week was watering it with this knowing inside me that I will see the grass poking out of the soil any day.
There were moments when I was exploring what to do different next time I seed, but I still believed that soon I will see the grass.
This feeling was stronger than a belief, it was a knowing, I somehow knew that I will soon see the grass.
It was amazing watching thousands of little dry seeds growing and coming to life. The miracle of nature.
Looking back, if after a week I would have concluded that the seeds are not going to grow to grass and stopped watering them I would not have had the grass. But I did not loose hope and was rewarded.
The difference between Hope, Belief and a Knowing is that
When we have a hope, we are not sure and we make no contribution towards the goal;
When we have a belief, we have a feeling inside us ensuring us that it will;
When we have a Knowing, it is as if we have within us a visualises of what is going to happen.
