These pictures of tulip shoots were taken five days apart. Seeing measurable growth is so cathartic for me this time of year. Abdul-Baha would say "Kam kam, ruz beh ruz" which means 'little by little, day by day' when people wondered how they could possibly live up to the high ideals set forth in the Baha'i Writings. That's what watching tulips emerge slowly but steadily does for me. Knowing the natural pace of growth in the physical world gives me something to hold onto when I'm trying to understand how growth works in the spiritual world. I can more easily put my life in line with God's plan if I can see little signs of how to do it. The tulips are my guide today.
