No Good is Ever Wasted

Written by on August 23, 2006 in The Healing Journey with 0 Comments

Some thoughts I posted on another board and want to share here:

“I’ve been an activist for various causes for many, many years, and one of the things I have learned is that looking for a desired outcome for one’s efforts can lead you to depression or despair. That’s because you never know exactly what your impact will be.

Sometimes, it’s what we think it will be and what we hope it will be, but more often it’s not. That does not mean our work is for nothing. It just means that we, as humans, don’t have a full view.

Just because we can’t see the roots growing under ground, does not mean nothing’s happening, and just because we can’t stay in one spot to witness the sprout coming up, doesn’t mean it won’t grow…or that someone else watching us sow, won’t be inspired to sow their own seeds, which may in fact, take better root than ours.

There’s another saying, “No good is ever wasted”, and I do believe that…whether I ever see it or not.”
