Spring...A Time for Renewal  
Copyright © 2006 Mark Susnow
Inspire Possibility

Life's seasons are amazing with each season having its unique 
cycle. It's been a long winter and I'm starting to feel spring. 
Unfortunately for many the winter storms haven't been kind. When 
you're in the middle of a storm, you sometimes wonder if it will 
ever end. Yet you know after the storm there will be a sense of 
calmness, clarity and beauty. The air feels different and you 
only need to look up at the sky and you feel lighter. As spring 
approaches you notice the wild flowers, the blossoms on the fruit 
trees and the abundance of birds that surround you. At night you 
notice the stars in the sky, the brightness of the moon and feel 
the crispness in the air.

Spring is a time for new beginnings and brings with it a sense of 
hope and optimism. As you prepare for the spring ritual and think 
about what you want to harvest, you pull out the weeds and 
prepare the soil for planting. Imagine if you will, that the 
weeds are your limiting beliefs that clutter your mind and the 
seeds you spread around in the garden are your ideas.... 
possibilities planted in the garden of your mind.

How you cultivate your garden determines your harvest. Sometimes 
you pour seeds from the package right onto the soil and at other 
times you might follow a systematic plan of planting every few 
inches. The seeds grow from the darkness toward the light and 
will nurture you in many ways. What is more important is what you 
harvest in the future from these seeds. They are your destiny.

This spring let us be inspired by the ritual of spring to think think about what we can plant that will transcend our 
normal way of looking at spring. Think of spring as a time of 
possibility. Be sure to plant some seeds that won't have to be 
replanted next year, that will grow and can be harvested and 
enjoyed by future generations. We are talking about our vision.

Sometimes an inspiring poem says it all. This poem, written in 
500 B.C. by an anonymous Chinese poet, is most poignant. Enjoy 
the poem and share your vision.

The Harvest

If you are thinking a year ahead,
sow seed.
If you are thinking ten years ahead,
plant a tree.
If you are thinking one hundred years ahead,
educate the people.
By sowing seed once,
you will harvest once.
By planting a tree,
you will harvest tenfold.
By educating the people,
you will harvest one hundredfold.

Imagine there's a movie screen, the movie screen of your mind 
that connects with the universal mind of the world. You have a 
magic power that can influence the way people think. You can 
empower the world to think differently.

What is it you want people to know and in what ways do you want 
them to change? What is your hope for yourself, your community 
and the world? My hope is that we all share our vision because we 
all want the same thing. We want to experience love and that 
sense of connection. We long for peace on the planet and want to 
see an end to world hunger. When enough of us share the same 
vision and commit to it, we can create an unstoppable force of 

When we feel connected to each other, to nature and to this 
empowering presence we know we are not alone. From this place of 
knowing, we know that what is possible in our lives is unlimited. 
As spring unfolds it is my hope the seeds you plant renew your 
sense of hope and optimism. May you be inspired by this journey.

Feel free to share this letter with the friends in your circle 
and let them know about the advantages of being on the journey. 
Part of my journey has been expanding my capacity and ability to 
connect with other like minded people around the world. These 
letters, my website and you help me make this connection 
possible. Your suggestions and comments also help me sense what 
is on all of our minds.
