     I am but a seed trying to find the the Light. In my world, beneath the soil, it is dark and sometimes too wet/too dry (which in either circumstance, could cause death)!  As my roots spread out to seek nourishment, I run into every physical obstacle imaginable (as if I have been set up to fail).  There are even living organisms living in that dark place that prey on "Light seekers" like me.  However the Light above the the soil literally pulls me and insists that I "press on"!  (And so I will).
    To know . . . To Love . . . And to serve The Light.
