What drives the sprout?

Zed and I were just recording the upcoming episode of the podcast. We were pondering the idea of sprouting. What makes us sprout? What calls us forward? What makes that sprout thick, engorged, with energy to push up and out into the world?
Wikipedia says “… in a general sense, germination can be thought of as anything expanding into greater being from a small existence or germ.”
I like that idea of expanding into greater being. My ego wants to believe that it is my energy, my impulse that push ideas (like the coloring book) out into the world. But what if some of it is a pull—from the planet, from the universe, calling it forth.
I breathe a sigh of relief at that thought because then, if that’s true, part of my job is to simply not get in the way.
What are you sprouting or what is being sprouted through you?
