Everything works to its own timing.
After a storm brought down a great oak tree last October in Colchester I salvaged thirteen acorns and planted them. I won’t see anything emerge from these acorns until spring, since they are waiting out the winter before emerging. Acorns like everything in nature work according to their own clock, they will emerge as oak saplings at their own moment and pace.
Humanity live in a fast paced world, a delusion that the individual can achieve instant gratification of any desire: lose weight, swallow a magic pill; instant fortune, buy a lottery ticket; new expensive gadget, buy it on credit. Humanity has a foolish opinion contrary to nature that everything desirable can like magic instantly appear, though many corporates promote this delusion with destructive consequences to self, society and the environment.
The individual can learn from the acorn, that everything in reality moves slowly at its own pace: better to lose weight over time; spend a couple of years achieving prosperity; saving up for a desired gadget.
I patiently wait for the oak saplings to emerge many months from now from the acorns I planted. My major business investment in a project staggered over many months rather than seeking a loan, a proverbial acorn becoming an oak tree at its own pace. Human civilisation and this planet would benefit from learning from the cycles of nature, that all has its moment, its own pace, its own cycle.
