Ah ha! Look what was under the leaves! The persistence of life, no matter what! This little "Charlie Brown" citrus tree is full of surprises! Day by day, it demonstrates the yogic principle of "abhyasa," - little steps in the direction it wants to go. When we practice the same principle, we learn patience, self-regulation and discipline. I like what philosopher, Jim Rohn says... we learn "to discipline our disappointment." You may still face setbacks, so keep going, anyway. This follows directly in the teachings written in Sanskrit of the enduring Bhagavad Gita, an epic text examining moral philosophy. We're encouraged to perform actions in alignment with our dharma, or life purpose, without regard for the results or "fruits" of action. Although, the little tree is destined to perhaps grow small Meyer lemons, the process still mesmerizes me. I didn't expect this to happen until spring!
