What Determines a Weed?
The world today is quick to call wildflowers weeds, cause they don’t know the use of yet. It’s easier to call them weeds, and let them be done with it.
This what my lawn would look like, and the noxious weed officers gave me a warning that I had to kill them from spreading.
So, I researched the propagating of daisies, and they spread from the root system, and not by seed. They look nice before they die, then they look ugly after their death, and so I mow them after they die. There’s just more of them next year. I guess I could mow them, but they spread from the root system.
I guess I could spray them with weed killers, but the bees like them, and the weed killers are the cause of colony collapse. I don’t want to kill any more bees.
Who Determines Weeds?
Who determines the weeds? God planted them here, and we must find a use for them.
God Said in Genesis 1:29-30
“I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.”
We eat what we want, cause we want meat.
“Listen to me, everyone, and understand this. Nothing outside a person can defile them by going into them. Rather, it is what comes out of a person that defiles them.”
I think what he meant, is by rages, where we say what we don’t believe.
It’s in anger, that we regret. It colors us as evil, but the war going on inside of ourselves is the battle. The battles carry lots of death, and your words are just describing the battlefield. In my mind, at least.
I go into rages constantly, screaming in anger. The main reason for my loneliness.
So I must have a lot of weeds in the garden… anger is the sower of weeds, but they have a lot of pretty wildflowers. Good to look at , but horrible to taste.
Back to the Weeds
Weeds may be poisonous or delicious, and needs to develop a taste for it. I remember my first taste of coffee was horrendous, but I’ve grown accustomed to it, and coffee was my morning friend, that I had to greet before my day started.
That was then, and now, I don’t need coffee to make the day.
Is the coffee plant a weed, or an addictive drug?
I tend to think of it as an addictive drug, much like the greed principle of money, is addictive.
Everything is a drug, from my perspective. Whether you take it orally or ideologically, it enters your body or mind. The effect on your character is affected, and you crave more. Which is the first sign of addiction.
Enough babbling about weeds, my question is who determines the weeds?
If it’s not nutritious, it’s a weed. If it’s not useful, it’s a weed.
If God gave us all the plants, then God is the weed spreader. Or maybe we just didn’t discover the use of it, yet.
I tend to think of it as our fault, it might be the cure for cancer for all we know. That brings up the pharmaceutical industry and the patents industry, they want to claim it as their property, but that’s another post.
Hopefully, I didn’t spread more weeds or weed’s seeds, but even wildflowers are determined to be weeds… by the noxious weed police.
This is the song that inspired this post.
