Fearing the Harvest

Imagine a farmer who carefully plants a crop one day – tilling the earth, planting the seed, adding fertilizer and top soil, watering it to give it a head start. Then, at the end of the day’s labor says,

“I hope it doesn’t grow.”

“I hope I don’t water it again tomorrow.”

When we indulge a whim and engage in behavior we know is incongruent with our core values, we are that farmer.
