YOUR Next Action Step May come, But YOU’ll Need This….

The Gospel of Matthew (Chapter 13, verses 3-9) in the King James Version of the Bible reads as follows:

3- And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow;
4- And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:
5- Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up,
because they had no deepness of earth:
6- And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.
7- And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them:
8- But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some
9- Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

My interpretation of this passage is that Jesus instructs people to make sure that their spirit is fertile for the growth of anything that they are working towards.


Jesus wanted us to have to contemplate over the teachings because it creates attention and focus deliberate energy towards the learning process. Anything gained too easily is unappreciated. So Jesus speaks in parables to create value to the receiver of the information.
The sowing of the seeds is metaphysically interpreted as the formulation of new ideas. Everything is created from thought first. In sowing seeds, we must first conceptualize the idea and see it in our minds as if it were in tangible form.

Some of the ideas may fall “by the waste side” by our mental blockages constructing reasons why our idea could not be possible. So we, following unconscious orders, dismiss the idea and never bring it to tangible form.

The “stony places” are places in our consciousness where we will bring the idea to form, but the reasoning behind the idea is shallow or fleeting. The idea may not be in line with divine order. The idea may not be based on true desire, but to serve an immediate need. So there is “no root”, or no bases of the idea rooted in true consciousness. So the idea may be worked on temporarily, but then at the first image of adversity, fear and doubt sets in and the negative energy “burns” up the idea.

Thorns are negative thoughts which have been implanted into our minds through our experiences, childhood and adult. These thoughts lie deep in our subconscious and tell us that even if the idea is achievable in concept it cannot be achieved in your life. Too fat, too ugly, and too old, are all examples of those “thorns” that will choke an idea such as “I am physically fit” or “I am getting married this year”. As long as these “thorns” are present, they will “choke” any hope of life forming to these new ideas.


Now, let me discuss the concept of “good ground”. “Good ground” refers to a clean, disciplined, spiritual state, where the creator formulates the idea, creates the circumstance in their mind, focus their energy on the feeling when they have received it, and claim it as their own. “Good ground” has no room for doubts, fears, or blockages. It is spiritual soil with the necessary subconscious fertilizer to bring creation into tangible form, which will bring “forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold” meaning in the amount of maximum potential that each idea has.

This metaphysical interpretation is for those who “have ears” or who has the spiritual insight to decipher the “parable”. And this passage from the Gospel of Matthew is interpreted, where it can be applied daily.
