A seed

Dear Reader,

The following is entirely by Dane Rudhyar.  His mind was beautiful.  He was born and educated in France and came to the United States as a young man. 

He became a brilliant astrologer and metaphysician and wrote many books   with profound insights about the human condition and our evolution.

This piece was gleaned from a very small book he wrote with the same title. I wanted to share the beauty and wonder of a great mind, indeed, an advanced soul, with you.

“I feel that we are at the threshold of a new age, and that we need now, more than anything else, a new approach to human relationships and to social organization. We need a planetary approach, we need a synthetic approach. We need something in which the individual learns his own function in the world because if you have a global world the individual has to be so well established in his own identity that he can afford to cooperate with other people all over the world, independent of their culture, their race, their traditions and so on.


It is very important, therefore, that one should learn how to establish oneself in one’s own identity.  We need a new type of human being. We need something which is based no longer, so much on conflict, but on a full accept-ance of the total human being: body, mind, soul, feelings, everything. An esthetic approach versus an ethical approach,  so that you can see the rela-tionship in which everything stands inside the whole, so you can look at the whole and become identified with the ‘wholeness’ of that whole, rather than any particular part.


Now this is, of course, a very different situation. We are certainly in a difficult time and what is ahead of us today, I do not know. I am rather pessimistic as far as the immediate future is concerned, considering the way the world and our nation is moving at the present time. But you must realize that crises are sometimes necessary to accomplish what has to be accomplished.


The only problem, however, is this: something must be ready before the great crisis comes—when the new cycle begins—for it will have to begin on the foundation of those seeds which have been sown before the crisis. If you have a winter followed by a spring but there was no harvest in the fall no seed will germinate during the spring and you will have to start at the very beginning into the most primitive time of manifestation.


That’s why I have stressed, so much all my life, the idea I call the ‘seed person,’ the person who is willing and able to gather within himself, as it were, the past of humanity and particularly of our Western world, of course, but also of other cultures because what we want to emerge from the future,–after whatever crisis will come—is a global world.


We therefore need people of great vision, men and women who are not specialists, (generalists, as they are sometimes called today), women and men who have the vision and courage to wait, and to, in some way, through their lives, through their example, and through whatever they leave after their deaths, to become the seeds of the future world.  That’s, of course, the great choice we all have to make, and we all can make it.


We can follow the mass vibration and decay, like all of the leaves of the world in the fall, (however beautiful the golden leaves may be), they will have to decay and become manure for the future of civilization, but it is only the ‘seed people’ that really count, and it is those you should look for, if you yourself do not yet feel you are to the point  of being ready to become a ‘seed person,’  because it is that only which is the insurance for the future rebirth of humanity.


I think today, it is of no use to try to look to the immediate future, because it looks very dark; but it is to look—to prepare—for the possibility that a new world may arise, if not tomorrow, the day after tomorrow.  I think it is the only thing which gives value to all our sacrifice, all our courage, decisions and choices today: it is to become seeds for the development of the future world. So I hope every one of you,–each one in her or his own way,—can someday soon, very soon (if you have not done it already), make a choice, and become ‘seed women’ and ‘seed men’. I thank you.”

*Please note that I have inserted some punctuation where I felt it made Rudhyar’s ideas more clear and I have also taken the liberty to give women their just place as leaders of the race along with men. Other than that, what is above is straight from Dane Rudhyar, as far as I know. The name of the publisher and year of publication has been lost.
