What is evolving within you, within others, unseen?

Yesterday was a hard day for me. I couldn't get into action or get much done. I/we have a tendency to equate productivity with action. But sometimes, the most productive things are happening in silence, in seeming non-action, unheard and unseen. 

I’m thinking in particular of the seed quietly germinating in the soil, and the chick developing quickly within its shell. Much has happened before we become aware of these new sprouts eagerly entering the world.

How can we make sure there is space and time to incubate?
