“What is the chaff to the wheat?”Jeremiah 23:28
What is the husk to the seed?
Is it the thing that is gathered and cherished?
Is it the thing that we need?
Is it the thing that can grow and bear fruit?
Is it the thing that can feed?
What is the chaff to the wheat—
the mortal lies to God’s thought?
Which is the one
to be gathered and cherished?
Which is the one to be taught?
Which will cause us to grow and bear fruit?
Which is the one to be bought?
When chaff is flown and kernels are gathered,
and their substance transformed to bread,
the baker is recompensed,
the child is nourished,
and all of the multitudes fed.
When lies are flown
and God’s thoughts are gathered
Mind’s universe understood, known,
divine Love will thrive in us,
all heaven alive in us—
we’ll see that God’s Life is our own.
Children beloved, complete.
