Seeds

The mightiest redwood grew from a small seed in a cone, and that, in turn, sprang from a seed from a cone from another redwood, and so on. For generations, centuries, millennia.

Every seed stores not only the raw potential of the mature plant enfolded within it, but of that plant’s future generations.

Every action taken or not taken today, every word said or unsaid, changes the timeline of the Universe forever.

And all futures spring from this present moment, as this moment in turn arises from all the past moments that have ever been.

The seed from which the whole Universe blossomed is the One.

The seed from which that One came forth is unfathomable.

My faith lies not in answers, nor questions, but in that mystery beyond, behind, beneath, within Everything. There is no surer foundation, no wider reach, no grander canvas, no presence more persistent. Or intimate.

When you can dance on nothing at all, you can never fall.

  1. Thanks man, that was mighty encouraging.

    Need to tattoo this on my forehead: “Every action taken or not taken today, every word said or unsaid, changes the timeline of the Universe forever.”

  2. Okay, Trevor, and I’ll get tattooed “When you can dance on nothing at all you can never fall.” Beautiful :)

  3. Oh my! That was beautiful! I’ve been waiting for you to post something new…………it was worth the wait!

  4. Thanks, Margaret!

    I think I’ll be posting more frequently now. After four years of “absence,” there’s some “presence” again!

  5. Man, I’m glad you are posting again. I have missed you all the way down here in Georgia. Maybe the dark night is ending. I pray so.

    Peace and Presence

    Oh, and I really do like the “Seeds” post.
