THE EMPEROR'S SEEDS

An emperor in the Far East was growing old and new it was time to choose
his successor.

Instead of choosing one of his assistants or his children, he decided
something different.

He called young people in the kingdom together one day.

He said, "It is time for me to step down and choose the next emperor.. I
Have decided to choose one of you."

The kids were shocked!

But the emperor continued.

"I am going to give each one of you a seed today, one very special seed.
I want you to plant the seed, water it and come back here one year from
today with what you have grown from this one seed. I will then judge the
plants that you bring, and the one I choose will be the next emperor!"

One boy name Ling was there that day and he, like the others, received a
seed. He went home and excitedly told his mother the story.

She helps him get a pot and planting soil, and he planted the seed and
watered it carefully.

Everyday he would water it watches to see if it had grown.

After about three weeks, some of the other youths began to talk about
their seeds and the plants that were beginning to grow.

Ling kept checking his seed, but nothing ever grew.

Three weeks, 4 weeks, 5 weeks went by. Still nothing.

By now, others were talking about their plants but Ling didn't have a
plant, and he felt like a failure.

Six months went by; still nothing in Ling's pot. He just knew he had
killed his seed. Everyone else had trees and tall plants, but he had
nothing.

Ling didn't say anything to his friends, however. He just kept waiting
for his seed grow.

A year finally went by and all of the youths of the kingdom brought
their plants to the emperor for inspection.

Ling told his mother that he wasn't going to take an empty pot but his
mother said he must be honest about what happened.

Ling felt sick to his stomach, but he knew his mother was right.

He took his empty pot to the palace.

When Ling arrived, he was amazed at the variety of plants grown by the
other youths. They were beautiful -- in all shape and sizes.

Ling put his empty pot on the floor and many of the other kids laughed
at him.

A few felt sorry for him and just said, "Hey nice try."

When the emperor arrived, he surveyed the room and greeted the young
people.

Ling just tried to hide in the back.

"My, what great plants, trees and flowers you have grown," said the
emperor.
"Today, one of you will be appointed the next emperor!"

All of the sudden, the emperor spotted Ling at the back of the room with
his empty pot. He ordered his guards to bring him to the front.

Ling was terrified.

"The emperor knows I'm a failure! Maybe he will have me killed!"

When Ling got to the front, the emperor asked his name.

"My name is Ling," he replied.

All kids were laughing and making fun of him.

The emperor asked everyone to quiet down.

He looked at Ling, and then announced to the crowd, "Behold your new
emperor! His name is Ling!"

Ling couldn't believe it. Ling couldn't even grow his seed. How could he
be the new emperor?

Then the emperor said, "One year ago today, I gave everyone here a seed.
I told you to take the seed, plant it, water it, and bring it back to me
today. But I gave you all boiled seeds, which would not grow. All of
you, except Ling, have brought me trees and plants and flowers. When you
found that the seed would not grow, you substituted another seed for the
one
I gave you. Ling was the only one with the courage and honesty to bring
me a pot with my seed in it. Therefore, he is the one who will be the
new emperor!"

If you plant honesty, you will reap trust.
If you plant goodness, you will reap friends.
If you plant humility, you will reap greatness.
If you plant perseverance, you will reap victory.
If you plant consideration, you will reap harmony.
If you plant hard work, you will reap success.
If you plant forgiveness, you will reap intimacy.
If you plant patience, you will reap inner strength.
If you plant faith, you will reap miracles.
But if you plant dishonesty, you will reap distrust.
If you plant selfishness, you will reap loneliness.
If you plant pride, you will reap destruction.
If you plant envy, you will reap trouble.
If you plant laziness, you will reap stagnation.
If you plant bitterness, you will reap isolation.
If you plant greed, you will reap loss.
If you plant gossip, you will reap enemies.
If you plant worries, you will reap wrinkles.
If you plant sin, you will reap guilt.

So be careful what you plant now, it will determine what you will reap

    SEED? Apa pandangan ttg yg ni lak? (may be a little bit childish...)

    Superior Evolutionary Element Destined-factor (SEED factor)= A factor that determines the course of a species' evolution. The existence of the SEED factor has yet to be proven, and it remains a subject of intense controversy in scientific circles. But in theory, those who possess the SEED factor have the ability to advance to the next stage of human evolution - an ability unrelated to whether the carrier is a Natural or a Coordinator.

    "SEED mode represents the ability for an individual with the SEED factor to enter into a state of enhanced awareness and peak physical ability. While in this state, the person (usually a mobile suit pilot, but not necessarily) demonstrates heightened reflexes and extremely quick information processing. "
