A Seed in Earth's Womb
Where was the explosion of beauty, color and taste before the seed became the fruit? Within the seed's simple exterior lays enormous potential, far beyond the molecular explanation. The seed houses the spiritual shape of things to come
Mind and Emotion
Our subconscious "mind" finds its expression in the way we think, and the subconscious "emotions" come into play in the way we speak
The Kabbalah of Communication
