Spiritual sun, the

Our love must water the seeds it cultivates in us

March 21st 2019
Each year, when spring returns and the warmth and light increase, all the seeds in the ground begin to sprout and grow. It is a time for us to think about all the seeds within us: they are also ready to germinate and grow under the light and warmth of the sun – the spiritual sun. The sun we see rising on the horizon each morning is a distant reflection of this spiritual sun. By learning to focus on the sun, we connect ourselves to the spiritual sun that vivifies the seeds the Creator planted in us. Each morning, by consciously presenting ourselves before the sun, we become the gardeners of our own earth. The small shoots – the qualities and virtues of our heavenly Father – need to be watered. The sun sends its light and warmth, but cannot water the plants. It is our role to water them with the water within us: our love and gratitude. Every progress we make in this endeavour is inscribed within us, and we will feel its benefit throughout our life, and even beyond, in our future lives.
