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?
