Just as an acorn that goes unplanted in the earth can never realize its destiny to become a mighty oak, so it holds with any Real Spiritual Principle that we unearth in our journey through this life: only those Truths developed in us — by reason of our work to see that they take root in the ground of our soul — are empowered to grant us the strength, shelter, and sustenance of their eternal Life.
