“Anything will give up its secrets if you love it enough.”―George Washington Carver
We are connected as One through our divine link with God.”
One of the millions of things I LOVE about my job is I can work wherever I am. Right now, I’m visiting my sister in Savannah, Georgia where boiled peanuts are sold at every roadside stand.
For me, it’s impossible to think about peanuts without thinking of George Washington Carver, the great American scientist and inventor who came up with hundreds of uses for the lowly legume and practically saved the economy of the South after the boll weevil devastated the cotton crop. He was one of the first Americans to be invoked into Britain’s Royal Society of Arts and was friends with three American presidents.
And while yes, he had several advanced degrees and taught at several colleges, he was the first to admit that all his “scientific” discoveries, the brilliance that made him so famous came from his connection to God or what I call the “Field of Potentiality.” (The F.P.)
Every morning, very early, George Washington Carver got up and walked for many miles. He connected with nature and it was that communion, indeed the plants themselves that told him how to turn peanuts and soybeans and sweet potatoes into the more than 100 commercial products he developed.
As he said, “I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in.
“Reading about nature is fine, but if a person walks in the woods and listens carefully, he can learn more than what is in books for they speak with the voice of God. ”
He said he never had to grope for methods. Anything he needed to know was easily revealed to him.
“Without God to draw aside the curtain,” he said, “I would be helpless.”
Likewise, Einstein, the man we credit as being the world’s foremost genius was connected to this higher energy.
Call it what you will, but nature, God, the F.P. has answers to every alleged “problem” and “devastated economy” that seems to challenge us. Once we let go of “all we think we know” and make it our goal to connect to this unlimited, all-knowing, all-loving force, new discoveries and brilliance will rush in from every side.
