What is a Seed?
“Inside each of us, there is the seed of both good and evil. It’s a constant struggle as to which one will win. And one cannot exist without the other.”
What is a seed?
“A seed is an embryonic plant enclosed in a protective outer covering called the seed coat.” That is the description I discovered when I “googled” the question above. It could also be a metaphor for what we are. An embryonic Soul covered in skin.
Seeds are so tiny and humble yet can grow into something beautiful and grand or sometimes monstrous and overpowering. The Willow tree was once a seed as was the Corpse flower (deemed the ugliest plant of all time lol). Martin Luther King was a seed and so was Hitler.
There are many metaphors using “seeds”. Seeds of memory, seeds of hope, sowing the seeds, seeds of doubt and the list could go on. Thoughts are the “seeds” that give rise to actions, habits and character. Our life is shaped by our mind.
Throughout life we are performing a dance between seed and full-grown plant with each decision we make. Our choices allow our seeds to become life-giving or destruction. We tend to become what we think but did you know that the heart has intelligence? We are all seeds in the same garden connected to the same soil.
This blog will be about all kinds of allegorical seeds. I hope you will enjoy and welcome…
