The process known as the life cycle can be understood through the symbol of the seed. In order for it to live to its fullest potential it must go down into the darkest dark and wait. Time must pass in this dark place where it does not yet know what it is doing. Then, something happens to it—warmth comes. The seed does not make seasons change, life does that. Suddenly, and unexpectedly, everything starts breaking apart and all that was inside it pushes out. To someone who doesn’t understand nature, the process of life being in constant cycles of creation, those that happen regardless of desire, behavior, or choices– to this seed, it would look like complete and utter catastrophe.
Dear you, human being, do you believe you have not come from the equivalent of this seed?
