The Divine Nursery

There are some poor souls who go through life without learning a conscious lesson. Inherited tendencies, a lack of moral training, cruel circumstances, and all manner of chilling influences would seem to have utterly blasted their spiritual natures.

Yet the germ of good is there, dormant in its dull husk, and here, shall be quickened into life [Spiritual Life]. You know there are some seeds that will not germinate in the cold, open ground of northern latitudes, and that it is only in a more genial atmosphere that they can be made to unfold. Sometimes it happens so with this germ soul, and here, in the Divine Nursery, not a seed is lost, but all wake to new possibilities.
