Earthseed 21-30

21. What a living world will demand

There is no end
To what a living world
Will demand of you.

∞ = Δ

22. Earthlife

We are Earthseed. We are flesh—self aware,
questing, problem-solving flesh. We are that
aspect of Earthlife best able to shape God
knowingly. We are Earthlife maturing, Earthlife
preparing to fall away from the parent world.
We are Earthlife preparing to take root in
new ground, Earthlife fulfilling its purpose,
its promise, its Destiny.

∞ = Δ

23. A Phoenix

In order to rise
From its own ashes
A phoenix

∞ = Δ

24. Kindness

Kindness eases Change.

∞ = Δ

25. Cast on new ground

Cast on new ground
Must first perceive
That it knows nothing.

∞ = Δ

26. Embrace diversity

Embrace diversity.
Or be divided,
By those who see you as prey.
Embrace diversity
Or be destroyed.

∞ = Δ

27. A Gathering of Earthseed

Once or twice
each week
A Gathering of Earthseed
is a good and necessary thing.
It vents emotion, then
quiets the mind.
It focuses attention,
strengthens purpose, and
unifies people.

∞ = Δ

28. The Galaxies

The galaxies move through space.
The stars ignite,
God is Change.
God prevails.

∞ = Δ

29. The rest of what we need

God is neither good nor evil,
neither loving
nor hating.
God is Power.
God is Change.
We must find the rest of what we need
within ourselves,
in one another,
in our Destiny.

∞ = Δ

30. Shape Self

The Self must create
Its own reasons for being.
To shape God,
Shape Self.

∞ = Δ
