Big problems in your relationships with others, whether at work or in your personal life, don’t start out big. They start out as Micro-Inequities – little “seeds” of disrespect, hostility, and bias sent from one person to another, often without knowing it. But just as negative “seeds” can be destructive, positive seeds are conscious choices to promote respect, honor, and decency in human relationships, what I call SagaciSeeds. This is the essence of Human Agriculture, cultivation of behaviors to enhance and sustain better relationships.
Do you appreciate the miracle of you? Human beings are walking, talking miracles. First, at our foundation, we’re animals – subject to instincts and emotions, like hate, love, anger, fear, fight, flight, – but what makes us miracles is that, as human beings, we have consciousness. We are miracles, because, unlike animals, we are conscious of the fact that we have emotions and are subject to instinctual impulses. We have the power of choice – We can rise above emotions and instinct, think through a situation, and choose how to respond. To act with respect, honor, and integrity is to choose to not indulge in our emotions or instinct, but to rise above them. This is a choice we make for others, certainly, but one that we need to make for ourselves, because it is the choices we make that define who we are.
Human Agriculture is about treating every relationship you have as an open field ready for you to plant and grow the harvest you’re looking to reap. Sagaciseeds are behaviors you choose that plant subtle positive messages into the minds of the people around you, positive messages that can take root and grow, be cultivated. Like the old adage, you reap what you sow. Think of a relationship as an open field ready for planting. If you want to grow nurturing vegetables, beautiful flowers, or resourceful timber, you have to choose the right seeds and plant them deliberately, fertilize them, tend to them, protect them from the elements, and give them time to grow. What can undermine that effort, however, are weeds. They come out of nowhere and can grow under any conditions with no help at all. Ignore them and they spread and become overgrown, choking off everything nurturing, beautiful, and resourceful, leaving you with an ugly wasteland.
It’s the same in Human Agriculture – negative behaviors, conscious or unconscious, are “weeds” of micro-inequity or aggressions whose seeds can take root and choke off everything good you’ve tried to build in your relationships with others. Negative seeds tend to operate “under the radar” of choice. Recognizing how to weed out indulgence in negative instincts or emotions is key to cultivating a safe, productive environment for positive growth in both your work and personal life.
