The job of a gardener is to create the right conditions for the little seed to take the big step out into the world to fulfill its potential.
We can explain how deep to plant a seed and how much light they need, but we can’t really begin to explain how the life force is stored in that little seed and then suddenly becomes active.
When I consume these plants, I’m eating the energy of the sun. I’m eating the collaboration of the trillions of microbes in the soil. And I’m eating the wisdom of the Universe, which knows how to store life in the tiny seed which became the plant.
I finished my breakfast feast 3 hours ago.
Now those plants are part of me.
They have become human cells.
