Excerpt from The Education of Children: From the Standpoint of Theosophy
Life is like a plant that contains not only that which is visible to the eye, but also a future condition concealed within its secret depths. He who has before him a plant that is just in leaf, is well aware that later on blossoms and fruit will be added to the leaf-bearing stem. The germs of these blossoms and fruit are already concealed within the plant. But it is im posible for one who merely te gards it in its present condition to say how these organs will ultimate ly appear. Only he who is ac quainted with the nature of the plant can do so.
Human life also contains within itself the germs for its future.
