According to Thay (teacher), there are negative and positive seeds in each one of us. The negative seeds are of anger, hate, discrimination, jealousy. The positive seeds are of joy, compassion, understanding and loving kindness. The seeds that are watered regularly take roots and thrive. For example, if a person spends a lot of time touching her seeds of anger, her life could be about how difficult her children are, or how miserable her scheming colleagues make her. Her seeds of anger will be strong enough to dictate what she thinks, how she relates to others, or how she works.
