Seed: Accomplished

Keith Olbermann, one of the bad boys of MSNBC’s political news team, likes to taunt the current administration with their Mission Accomplished statement about Iraq. As a people, we like to measure our accomplishments.

The OED says that accomplish comes from Late Latin roots meaning to fill up, or complete. When we accomplish something, we complete it.

What have you completed in your life? A college degree. An exercise regime. Quitting smoking.

What if accomplishment were also the process?

You accomplish things, dear one, when you decide to do something, persist in its doing, and then look back from your now and measure it. You also accomplish things whilst you are in the midst of your doing. Give yourself credit in the process of completion.

Be content,

Susan Corso

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