Creating Something from Nothing

Empty Garden by Kathy Ruff

It never fails to amaze me how nature, God, the Universe — whatever you call it — can make something out of nothing, or barely nothing.

My garden is a perfect example.  My hubbie tilled the soil, I bought and planted the seeds.  Right now only cucumbers are visible in the upper left-hand corner of the picture since I also bought some seedlings to expedite cues, tomatoes and squash.

Between now and anywhere from 30 to 75 days, Mother Nature will do its thing and my garden will yield peas, carrots, radishes, peppers and lima beans.

Over that time, a small seed will create something from practically nothing. a lot of somethings.

Wayne Dyer said in one of his many presentations that when we are conceived, for nine months we do nothing but are being done.  Except for the time, that’s just like the garden.  It does nothing, but it’s being done.  We have no choice but to allow Mother Nature to do its thing and wait for the results.  Trust is essential.

I recall a neighbor I used to have who would over-water her plants in an effort to make sure they were getting what they needed.  Her plants didn’t do too well and many died.  Her constant hovering and interference upset the balance of nature.

Artists, writers and many other creative people create something from nothing all the time.  They trust their intuition, passion and inspiration to do its thing.

What something can you create from nothing?

    Land is precious. With a little planning and work, we can create food and beauty. Our minds and talents are also precious. With a little planning and work, we can create a meaningful life.
