"The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit." ~Nelson Henderson. This latest music video by the singer/songwriter team of Nimo Patel and Daniel Nahmod and filmmaker Ellie Walton captures the joy, introspection and inspiration in the song, "Planting Seeds." The song was inspired by Daniel Nahmod's original 2006 Water album, which captures the spirit of doing our part (planting the seeds), but then letting go and not holding on to what may come.

    Beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always loved "planting seeds" whether they are in my garden or just in what I share with others when I let the Holy Spirit guide me. Thank you.

  • Kathy

    I am inspired by the deep passion of the people in the video and the message is clear; we all plant seeds where we are and our roots give forth the blessings and rewards of our fruit. We as a people should spread the words of peace and acceptance and more.

    Judging the soil according to the Christian Scripture is, in large part, up to God.

    The simple act of letting the seed roll off the hand into the ground!

  • Georgie

    One aspect of finding the purpose of ones life is the realization that everything we do is planting a seed, either for a beneficial or for a poisonous plant of the future of life on earth. When we treat those seeds tenderly and with love, they grow into marvelous creations, though we won't be around to see the fruit with our physical eyes! That's the way of life. Thanks for sharing this lovely video.

  • Jean

    This video is so very uplifting! The song and it's message are very inspiring but the children and the other people going out and cultivating kindness and love really make it shine!

  • Janis

    The simplicity of the profound message! When the days SEEM full of dark and fear-- the truth of love is even more profound SIMPLY by the stark contrast. It's a candle that really appears like a neon light against the seemingly dark background of fear -- the simple smile becomes a gift of love to those who have lost their hope. Great video with a REAL message inside !

  • Jacqueline

    It takes the saying "it is the journey and not the destination" to a new level. No attachment. Just do it with love ! Let each of our Divine sparks light a path as we travel igniting a great light that transforms the planet...and so it is

    A smile and kindness are such easy things to do. Hopefully this will spread and we can all overcome the troubles of today. This is such a beautiful planet and people are so interesting. We need kindness, love and happiness to become contagious. That is what this world needs now more than ever. Spread the love people.....with a smile!

    See what it inspired... https://gadyasoor.wordpress.com/2016/04/02/seeds/ You may not understand my language - Gujarati . So its meaning... In this word - full of tensions, animosity, woes, sufferings and bitterness...such videos induce unfathomable peace and joy. Let us imbibe its spirit in our lives and spread awareness for it among our contacts

    There are so many wonderful contributes to this video that are very obvious.... and I sense that the producers of this video made it very clear of people taking the first step and also the importance of letting go and stepping back. They made it refreshing and easy to absorb. Thanks
