Instant Gratification

instant gratificationWe live in a world where people expect instant gratification. We can get information immediately through goggle, or purchase something on the spot with our credit cards or get in touch with anyone at any time. We expect results fast. However there is a law of gestation that must take place in order to produce the desired results of life. These are natural laws that can not be changed, altered or manipulated. A tomato takes 7-14 days to germinate, an elephant takes 18 to 24 months to give birth, a human about 9 months.
We nurture the tomato seed by planting it in good soil, water it, plant it in good sun, fertilize it and then wait. Once its germinated, then we take care of it so it can produce plenty of tomatoes.
Well the same goes for an idea. Although we don’t know exactly when an idea will germinated into reality we do know the same laws apply. If we plant the seed (idea) in a positive mind, nurture it by thinking of it often in a relaxed state, take some action every day toward its results it will  get born. It has to. But don’t expect instant gratification. Planting and harvesting does not come in the same season. You will be rewarded by the bounty with patience, tending your garden and preparation.
A time to plant and a time to reap.
There is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven.
