Day 37/100 Days of Seeds of Light

Every apple - every peach, cucumber, avocado, every fruit or vegetable with a seed or a pit - has potential to grow another apple or peach, cucumber, avocado.  But how often do we plant those seeds?  We mostly don’t.  We compost them or throw them into the trash or wash them down the drain and that’s the end of that.

So it is with the good things in the world around us.  We encounter countless good things every day - little things and big things and lots and lots of in-between things - and we mostly walk right by without stopping to notice, and that’s the end of that.

And yet.

Seeds are meant to be planted.  To grow and flourish, and to perpetuate the species.  

Let’s do that, then, with the goodness we encounter in the world and in our daily lives.  Let’s stop to notice it, let’s hold it up to admire it, let’s share it with each other as a way of planting it; each bit of goodness a seed, to grow and flourish and perpetuate the species.
