The last seed

I know you are hungry, and are tempted to eat the last meagre seed in your hand to abate your want; but refrain from doing so. For if you eat it, you will die. Yet if you cast it away, you will live. Before this sphinxlike conundrum you ask: “how does sustenance bequeath death, and hunger beget life?” Should you consume the last seed in your rucksack, in short order the hunger will return with an intensity that will drain your remaining vitality, and thus enervate you unto death. So, through sustenance, death is bequeathed.

But should you cast this seed away, and sacrificially commit it unto the soil of Divine Truth that is vivified by the Son’s Light, then in short order the miraculous occurs. In this soil in which the last of your seed is nestled, will suddenly sprout a Tree of Life teeming with abundant fruit that will fall to your lap and permanently nourish you. More than you alone can eat, you will then load baskets full of these delicious fruits to give to your fellowman. Satisfied, you will give with happiness. So, through the hunger of sacrifice, life eternal is begotten.

So you see, do not eat the last of your rations to assuage your hunger! You must courageously and trustfully cast it into the soil of Divine Truth. For only in this hunger of giving will you be resurrected into the nourishment of eternal living.
