“A mustard seed is about a millimeter in size. Jesus described it as the smallest of all seeds. When sown, it becomes a plant as large as some trees in about three to five years. Its faith, then is the pattern of the mature plant which is encoded genetically into the seed.
Our bodies’ faith is the pattern of the mature person which is encoded genetically in the sperm and egg. We take the functioning of our bodies for granted. We do not know how to make our hearts beat. We have no conscious awareness of how to breathe. The billions of chemical reactions and responses that create our continued life and health are almost entirely unknown to our conscious minds. And yet, here we are, living our lives in perfect faith that our hearts and lungs and all the rest of our amazingly intricate body systems are working.
It is logical, then, to trust that the non-physical parts of us–our minds, emotions, energy bodies and spirits–are also functioning well. These characteristics, too, are implicit in the seed that grew to be each of us. Our intellects and our wills are good and useful parts of our natures. Our soul essences, contained within our energy bodies, are excellent as the rest of our design. “Living the Law of One” by Carla L. Rueckert, p. 275.
