Food Fight #51 – Another Grown-Folks Misconception
So you say you don't have a green thumb? Good! I don't either. We're not supposed to.
Mother Earth Grows Food
Earth has the green thumb. This planet is designed to support life and the reproduction of life. Also, seeds and roots contain the stored power and instructions for growth. Growth is their main purpose and focus. Earth, seeds and plants are anxious to bring forth life and food that supports life. They are all very good at what they do because it is a part of their genetic makeup.
Humans Don't Have A Job In Growing Vegetables
Our human job in a garden is to place seeds and plants in the ground and step back – way back out of the way. Our main job and duty is to respect Earth, plants, seeds and all that supports their health. Respect for Earth is self-respect. Self-respect is food for life.
Humans cannot give increase (growth) or create life. These are Divine powers. Those who believe they do have a “green thumb” are probably doing unnecessary things and more likely to run afoul of Earth because they believe they are in control. An unhealthy approach cannot produce a healthy result even though it may appear to be so.
Green Is The Color Of Growth Not Envy
Willingness to listen to the rest of the natural world and learn from it as a student hungry for the power of pure knowledge, is the Earth seed that must germinate within us. This is much better than having a green thumb. Because learning (growing) takes place at the cellular level, as we grow in harmony with Earth, we become green through and through – nature-ly so.See Also:
