    Sow the Seed - See the Harvest

    The story is told of two boys who were walking through
    a field and found some corn seeds scattered across the
    ground. They each took one of the seeds home and
    planted it.

    When the first boy didn't see a tiny sprout after the
    second day, he dug up the seed to see if it had
    sprouted. Each day he dug up the seed and replanted it,
    but the corn would not grow. The seed had germinated;
    yet the boy had not allowed it to maintain contact with
    the soil, take root, and obtain nutrients. So, it died.

    The second boy planted his seed and left it alone. He
    imagined a tall stalk of corn where he had planted the
    seed. He waited patiently as rains came and sunshine
    bathed the ground with warmth. In ten days, a small
    sprout had broken through the ground, its curled leaves
    reaching toward the sky.

    Achieving any desire, whether large or small, begins
    with a seed sown in the mind. That seed is the vision
    of its fulfillment. It also requires the commitment to
    allow the vision to grow--the faith in God to do His
    part through storm, rain, and sunshine.

    Commitment allows life's storms to strengthen resolve.
    Resolve allows us to nurture a new dream, improve an
    existing dream, or begin over if necessary. Faith
    allows acceptance of any circumstance as God's blessing
    for growth.

    A seed sown must be nourished with faith and belief.
    When you hold a picture of the final creation in your
    mind, you hold and maintain faith. You honor God's
    desire to create something wonderful, and you honor His
    choice of your hands to help do the job.

    How often do we plant the seed of a beautiful dream in
    the fertile soil of our minds, and then dig it up? What
    could you achieve if you allowed your seed to grow,
    continuing to focus your spiritual eyes on the harvest?

    If it were not possible for you to achieve a dream,
    God would not have placed it in your heart and mind.
    Sow your seed, allow it to grow, and see an abundant
    harvest.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
