Seasons of Growth

on 9 May 2015

It is amazing:

the shape and the colour of a bud and blossom

indicate the shape and the colour of the fruit.

The plant follows a blueprint

that in all seasons of growth

you can recognize

an apple, a cherry, a pear, a rose.

Look deeply, and you will see it,

that blueprint.

Can this translate to a human being?

The ancestors believed that you could see

the most useful / fruit stage of a human

in his or her youth / blossom.

Recall that yogis advise

to get a hold of

depression, rage, addiction

as soon as possible,

because the patterns progress

to their consequences

in the same way

as purity, peace, loving kindness, joy


to their fruit state.

Look deeply at the blueprints

in your life and in your self.

Starve your weak points.

Feed your good and high traits.

Let your blueprint grow

and shape its most harmonious,

most delicious,

most beautiful yield.
