Want Vs. Care

                                     From Seed to Tree ~ Philip Brent Harris

~~~~~

For want of a seed, the shoot was lost.
For want of a shoot, the plant was lost.
For want of a plant, the flower was lost.
For want of a flower, the bee was lost.
For want of a bee, the plant was lost.
For want of a plant, the food was lost.
For want of a meal, we were lost.
For want of us, our world was lost.

For care of seed, the shoot did grow.
For care of a shoot, the plant did grow.
For care of a plant, the flower did grow.
For care of a flower, the bee did grow
For care of a bee, the plant did grow.
For care of a plant, the food did grow.
For care of a meal, we did grow.
For care of us, the living world did grow.

It probably doesn’t seem it could possibly be this simply. It is. When we become caregivers to all life, all life will thrive. When we overload, have no care, except for ourselves, nothing will thrive. That includes all of us.
