A small seed becomes a mighty oak tree one day. If you look at the seed, it is difficult to believe that the ultimate mix of roots, leaves, flowers, and fruits are contained within. Every form of life carries a blueprint of its own destiny within.

Man is also born a seed, brimming with potential. But, unless we become conscious of this magnificence within us, we cannot actualize it.

This requires taking a journey inward for the real magic to unfold. This is not to say that the interest in the outer has to be dropped, but our preoccupation with it needs to be. True, the seed draws light, water, and nutrition from the outside, but the transformation happens within its inner workings.

The mystic Osho summarizes as follows:
 “Drop the idea of becoming someone, because you are already a masterpiece. You cannot be improved. You have only to come to it, to know it, to realize it.”
