A Vision for Harvesting
We envision a world where nothing is taken before its time; where every fruit from every tree is allowed to stay on the branch until the exact moment when it is ready to let go; where every vegetable is allowed to stay on the vine until it has completely finished its process. We see a world where we are taught from the time we are young children to approach the plants with love and to let them drop their beautiful, sweet, nourishing fruits into our hands at the slightest touch from us.
We picture a world where we know – indeed, we see – the life-force energy / chi / prana that is in the plants, and, when we eat, we feel that life-force energy being transferred to us to the fullest extent possible because we waited until the plant is ready to give it to us.
In the same way, we see humanity having awakened to treating ourselves and the animals in the same way that we treat the fruits from the plants; where no one is taken before their time; where the life of every man, woman, child, and animal is allowed to go full term. We envision a world where all wars, killings, executions, and inhumane acts are seen now as an intrusion upon another’s path; where the sending of our innocent children – our most prized possessions – off to fight and die in war is now viewed by every thinking person as a perverse form of pedophilia, as a form of premature harvesting of their life-force energy by those who live in the shadows of our world.
Indeed, we see us living in a world where every person’s life is precious to everyone else; where we truly do unto others as we’d want done to ourselves; and where all who live and breathe upon this planet can go to sleep at night knowing, in their heart of hearts, that they will get to live out their lives, fully and freely, to the very last instant, and then to be picked, sweetly and oh-so-gently, by the loving hand of God.
“Life doesn’t require that we be the best, only that we try our best. Strive for excellence, not perfection.”
