The Power of Timing

That there is a time for everything is acknowledged in the culture where I grew up. 
The words from the biblical book of Ecclesiastes, chapter 3, verses 1 to 8 are familiar to many people, especially of my generation who have heard it read or sung at countless weddings. ** see below
Despite this wisdom being stated frequently, there are times when people think they can impose a schedule that suits human life ‘better’.
Bean Crop
Around the turn of the century I was living in Nova Scotia. I was involved with a small farm growing yellow and green beans for nearby supermarkets.
The land had been fallow for a long time before the start of this project, and bountiful crops grew without the intervention of any chemical pesticides or fertilizers. 
One year the person in charge of planting decided that the best way to achieve a bumper crop and premium price was to plant earlier.  If the seeds went in sooner than usual, she reasoned, the crop would be ready for picking before any other bean growers had a harvest.
Plant them early she did.  
Grow early they did not.  

As Long as it Takes
      Beans germinate and grow on a schedule dictated by the length of the days and the cycles of the moon. They require particular quantities of light and water no matter what date the seed-beans are planted. The shoots, plants, flowers and pods are coordinated with nature’s phenomena that no mere farmer can override.
Long, tender, tasty beans will be ready in their own time. Equally, the successes we seek in life will arrive on their own schedule.
Certainly we can make a difference in how we prepare the ground and care for the seed before planting. We can irrigate and maybe fertilize. We must be involved and attentive to the final result. Then we have to allow the unfolding.
Satisfied in the knowledge that we have played our part, we can move forward and put our attention to other places which need it. We can let go of the bean-harvest outcome, because we are no longer in control of it.
When Results are Ready
The beans are a wonderful metaphor for ambitions and goals that are less tangible. What we need most is a clear vision of the ‘bean crop’ we are working towards. Then we can educate ourselves and prepare for what we want. 
     Thubten Chodron wrote: “When you plant seeds in the garden, you don’t dig them up every day to see if they have sprouted yet. You simply water them and clear away the weeds; you know that the seeds will grow in time. Similarly, just do your daily practice and cultivate a kind heart. Abandon impatience and instead be content creating the causes for goodness; the results will come when they’re ready.” 

As a conduit for synchronicity, I am constantly amazed at the way revelations arrive at the exact moment they can be most useful, or most powerful, or most meaningful.
The Power of Timing is always working in our best interest and for maximum benefit. 

** To every thing there is a season,
and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate;
A time of war, and a time of peace.
Ecclesiastes, 3:1 - 8
