100 Odd Words #10 - A Parable Reinterpreted

What if the field was not the world, but the heart?
Then the wheat and tares are not souls predestined to a given path, but the seeds planted there from above and from below.
Then the harvest would not be the end of the world, but the season that comes again and again, when what is planted in the heart comes to full fruition and can be seen by clear eyes.
Then the tares would be the weedy and inedible urges that need to be bundled and burned away and the wheat our means to nourish ourselves and the world.
