God Seeds

My favorite kind of metaphor, and well done!

Spirituality Without Borders: Reflections on Spiritual Practice


  “The seed of God is in us. Given an intelligent and hard-working farmer, it will thrive and grow up to God, whose seed it is; and accordingly its fruits will be God-nature. Pear seeds grow into pear trees, nut seeds into nut trees, and God-seed into God. ”       § Meister Eckhart

I lie latent in the Ground of my soul
waiting for the Farmer-Spirit to till the soil,
turn me over to bake in the Son,
and nourish me with the elixir of her grace.

Human seed conjoins with
God-seed and produces a
sole nature-

The holy, hard-working
Smiles at the
fresh blosssom.
