Spiritual Law and Growth

In the transitional stage of thought through which we as mortals pass in our growth out of a material sense of existence into the spiritual understanding of what constitutes our true selfhood, there are many helpful lessons to be learned when once the eye of faith is open to the ever active, omnipresent operation of the law of good in our daily affairs. A recent lesson brought to me such an illumination of spiritual understanding that I desire to give it out in the hope that it may help others.

Early in the fall it became necessary to separate into three sections a plant of the common ribbon-grass variety, the roots of which had become pot-bound. So far as it was possible the division was a fair and equal one, each part being planted in the same kind of soil and the same kind of flower pot. One plant was placed in a sunny bay-window, where it was regularly watered and where the bright sunlight coaxed it into an immediate response. The other two were carried to a third floor room where the light was poor, where the plants were frequently chilled, and where water was not always supplied when needed.
