We humans are always in a hurry: hurry up and get through high school and into college. Hurry up through college and get a good job, get promoted, make more money as quickly as possible, find a partner, have a family etc, etc. It is nature which can teach us that growth, evolution cannot be forced or manipulated. In fact, a Buddhist text titled "Urgent" contains this wisdom from the Buddha: "A farmer has no psychic potency or spiritual might [by which he could command]: ‘Let my crops start growing today! Let them mature tomorrow! Let them bear grain the day after tomorrow!’ But with the change of seasons there comes a time when the crops grow, mature, and bear grain.”
Behind the growth of crops is a time of preparation: cultivating the ground, planting the seeds, providing irrigation, adding fertilizer. After all that is done, one has to wait for the "change of seasons" and at the right time, growth emerges. Buddhism teaches that causes and conditions must be favorable for results to surface.
