Positive and negative seeds

Thich Nhat Hanh, in his book The Heart of the Buddha’s Teaching,advises us to look inside ourselves at our strong and weak seeds. If our positive seeds are weak, we need to learn ways to water them and make them stronger. If our negative seeds are too strong, we can transform them by living in ways that don’t water our negative seeds. If we do find ourselves reverting back to our old behavior, we can remember it’s never too late to make a new beginning.
