There are various versions of the title of this post that all mean the same thing. We reap the flowers of tomorrow with the seeds we sow today. Therefore, ensure you have strong vibrant seeds planted in the right conditions – The Beautiful Flowers of Tomorrow are the Vibrant Seeds of Today.
As a teacher I can relate to this saying for it speaks of the purpose of teaching: The formation and nurture of the children we teach.
It reminds me of the fact I teach more than just a subject; I teach and model a way of life to be lived to its fullest. However, this teaching should not be restricted to the classroom or school setting. It needs to be visible in the whole of society – The school, workplace, community and the birthplace of learning, which is the home.
The flowers of tomorrow are the seeds of today
Here are two questions to consider…
1. Once planted how do the vibrant seeds grow?
Science teaches us that a seed will need a medium in which to grow, water and light. What nurturing medium – a place and a space, life-giving water – the gift of your time and energising light – the words of compassion, encouragement and motivation do you give to help sow the seeds of the flowers of tomorrow?
2. What type of seeds do we plant?
From my perspective I believe the singular most important seed to plant within ourselves and each other is the seed of hope.
We can exist without love – physical, spiritual or other. We can also exist without faith in ourselves, others or God.
We cannot exist without hope… a hope that we will find love and the faith that exists within each of us will reveal itself and grow.
We need to plant the seeds of hope within ourselves and each other for the benefit of humankind.
And remember – The Beautiful Flowers of Tomorrow are the Vibrant Seeds of Today!
Now go! Plant those seeds…
Regards and Blessings, Vicky
