And while others marveled at his good fortune, and while others were jealous of his good luck, the farmer always knew that no magic was involved. He merely followed in the footsteps of the wisdom given to him by God.
What I learned
For some reason the first 49 or so times I read this parable of the farmer and the seeds I just didn’t get it. Then finally, that 50th time it became so obvious to me that I just had to laugh at myself. He was just telling me that I am a creator and the quality of my creations will be entirely dependent on the quality of the thoughts with which I begin them.
This is the reason I am sitting for five minutes every day and establishing the quality of those thoughts by learning to think like Christ. Probably it would be more accurate to say that I am reminding myself what it is like to think like Christ. Then I spend another five minutes dropping pebbles into the pool of my awareness. Or planting only the highest quality seeds in my garden.
