October 25 flowers and berries 002

The sun continuously pours forth

Light and Life.

Ra nurtures all vegetation,

gathering the first fruits

produced by the power of his rays,

as if in his mighty hands,

bringing out sweet perfumes from the plants.

In the same way,

our souls, like heavenly flowers,

are nurtured by the Light of Atum’s wisdom,

and in return,

we should use in his service

all that grows within us.

Hermes Trismegestus, Thoth

From, The Hermetica
