Take the Fire

Seeds X, 10

Seed: Take the Fire

Edward Readicker-Henderson, writing Spirituality & Health, tells a story about a house in the process of burning to the ground. He asks, “Given the chance, what’s the one thing you would take out of the burning house?”

He answers his own question with a quote from French author Jean Cocteau who said, “I’d take the fire.”

What a wonderful, obvious answer! It seems to me to be the biggest answer. If the fire were gone, the house would no longer be burning.

How often do we choose the smallest answer? We forget that choosing is the action of exercising our free will.

Is there a place in your life where you’re choosing a smaller answer right now? Go ahead, change your mind, and take the fire.

Be content,
