“There is no planet, sun, or star could hold you if you but knew what you are.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson
To contemplate the path from acorn to oak is to sit in the wonder of the unfolding of life. Like the acorn, we are each a coded seed of potential light both in our terrestrial incarnation and beyond. Our code will have its limitations, just as an acorn is meant to be an oak tree, rather than a maple tree. Yet these limitations become what defines our uniqueness and role.
It is easy to feel like we are missing the mark with our path, engulfed as we are with media that tells us constantly that we should be more, better and beyond wherever and whatever we currently are. Taking the space to tune into the timing of nature reveals that no acorn becomes an oak before its time. The path of unfolding is endless and radical, but it is also paced to endure the trials of the making.
