Seeds of the Heart


'Before the seed there comes the thought of bloom.'

-  E. B. White

Sowing seeds, and cultivating wisdom and loving-kindness in the heart, are both offerings to the future. Whether poppy seed or acorn, a moment’s generosity or a lifetime’s practice, what we nurture will bear fruit, for us and for others.

Just as the spring rains will water a whole landscape, so that each plant and creature can flourish in their own way, a community, working together with a shared vision, can help create a sustainable and inspiring world to support individuals to grow.

Plants need strong roots to flower; people need to connect with the land and each other to develop.

Which seeds shall we plant and water? Where are our hearts rooted?
