Seed: Insurmountable Opportunities
Walt Kelly (August 25, 1913 – October 18, 1973) was an American animator and cartoonist, best known for the classic comic strip, Pogo of “We have the met the enemy and it are us” fame. That’s true, and so is this quote of his.
“We are confronted with insurmountable opportunities.”
I love the oxymoron implied in these words, and the lesson they imply. Opportunities, dear one, abound, ay, but there’s the rub. Do we take them as opportunities? Or do we, instead, opt for problems, difficulties, even, in New Age-speak, challenges. Opportunity arises only as we see it as such.
Opportunity means we get an appropriate chance to change something we want to change. The trick is, in the midst of the ‘problem,’ to a/ figure out it is an opportunity and b/ figure out what within said opportunity we are getting the chance to change. The secret to the process is to slow things down—waaaay down.
So the next time insurmountable opportunities confront you, slow down. Figure out what you want to change, and change it.

Seeds are remarkable gifts. Sown in consciousness, they bring you to the most important part of your being—your Divine Spark.
