Preparing for the harvest - Part 5 - Keep some seeds


Tending the garden of the heart - Day 99

From the seeds of some of the vegetables, like the cucumbers and peppers, we'll keep to sow again next season. We know that we don't have to, we could purchase them again from the store, but we decided that we'll use some of our own seeds to start a new batch next spring.

Fruits have the capacity to propagate themselves. One seed grows and reaches maturity and produces fruit which has seeds in them to start the process all over again. Without seeds in the fruit that would end the circle of it's life - there would be no continuation. A seed gives the gardener the opportunity to sow again and prepare for harvest.

If we were to keep every seed from our cucumbers, we would probably have enough seeds to give to each family within our community. If they in turn sow that seed and tended it to maturity, the vine may bear at least three cucumbers. That's enough cucumber seeds to give a seed to each family in more than one community. If we kept up the same example we would have more than enough seeds to produce food to feed the world.

God has provided more than enough for all of us to live in this earth with more than enough. We need to use our gifts to full capacity and tend them until they reach full maturity. Then when the fruit of our talents have produced seeds, instead of tossing them out, look to see the capacity for them to propagate themselves and share them with others that the world may have seed to sow in their own lives and feed themselves and their loved ones.

If we all were to be mindful in this, we would have no lack of anything. For all of us together has been given talents that can satisfy every desire on the earth in whatever time we are to occupy this space in this era and complement the whole of humanity.
