The energy inside a seed or an egg is dormancy. The energy of that seed creating a plant that creates fruit or the egg turning into a baby chick is active. Neither types of energies are better nor worse. Just different.
But before you dismiss what is dormant and turn your eyes to the loud, crashing displays of power, remember this: Buried in the earth, in our wombs, and in the stars are millions of possibilities, just waiting for their moment.
