Seeds of Love
Two people disconnected.
One gives, one takes.
Both stand divided.
Expecting to receive in advance,
Without first offering to give.
The teacher is above the student,
As the student is below the teacher.
One looked down upon.
The scale tips back and forth.
Rocking the boat like on a stormy ocean.
Resentment, bitterness and indifference.
Sprouting and spreading from the invalidation seed.
Choking out all that is good.
Sown from the seeds of discontent.
Two people connected.
The equals give and give.
Giving in advance.
Grace, compassion and mercy are "Fore-given".
As each is to learn their lessons of life.
Not as teacher or student, but as both.
The scale is now balanced.
Balance is created at the center of the scale.
Both sides meet in the middle.
All is centered at the removal of self and the consideration of other.
Validation now created.
Giving birth to Love, Kindness and Peace.
Sown from the seeds of love.
