“The lily has intelligence enough to start itself out of the seed when put in the ground and called upon by the to do so, as a man or a woman has the same intelligence (or should have) to go out in the sun on a pleasant day, and absorb the life and power sent in by the sun. Those who do not, who remain five-sixths of the time indoors, are, as a result, weak and bleached like potato-vines growing in a cellar. The lily has also sense enough to grow in the sun. It you put it in a room, it will grow toward that part of the room where the light enters. That is simply because it wants the light: it knows it needs it, and goes after what it needs, because it knows, or rather feels, that the light is good for it. …
“Where the lily gets ahead of us with its limited life and intelligence is that it does not concern itself or worry about the morrow. It toils not. It takes on water, air, sunshine, and whatever of the elements are in these, just what it needs for the minute, the hour, or the day, just so much and no more. …
“If the lily, with its limited intelligence, worried and fretted for fear the sun might not shine tomorrow, or that there might be no water, or money in the house, or potatoes in the cellar, it would surely become a cast-down, forlorn looking flower.” ~Prentice Mulford
Lily in the Ground
By an interesting coincidence (syncronicity?), I came across the above quote a day after planting some tulips and lilies in my yard. When you plant these bulbs, the instructions always tell you to plant then root down and bud up. This is always best, of course. But have you wondered what would happen if you ignore it and planted then upside down, or if one just flipped over while you were covering it with soil? The answer is that it would probably grow just fine. The roots would go down, not up. The stem would curve and grow up toward the sun. You may not think of that as intelligence, but it is. Lily intelligence may be severely limited intelligence, but it is intelligence nevertheless.
Lily Intelligence for Growing
Most lilies are summer-blooming. They do not grow in the winter, not if you live anywhere that gets below freezing in the winter. Yet we don’t plant them in the spring. Though several centuries of observing results, experts have learned, and therefore advise us, to plant these bulbs in the fall rather than waiting until spring. You can plant them in the spring, but they do better when planted in the fall. But here is the evidence of their limited intelligence. If you plant them in the spring, they will come up in a week or two. If you plant them in the fall, they won’t come up until spring. The temperature is not the main factor in this. It is the short days, the shortage of sunlight, that prevents them from growing in the winter. Yet something does happen in the winter as they do grow best when planted in autumn. I tried doing some online research to find out why summer bulbs like lilies should be planted in the fall, I can find nothing specific. If you know the answer, feel free to comment.
Lily Intelligence in Facing the Sun
No matter where you plant your lilies, when they come up, they will seek the sun. If they can get enough sun growing straight up, they will do so. If they can’t, they will bend at an angle to get the best exposure.
Lilies are not unique in this. Nearly all flowers and plants will do that. Even trees do it in various ways. In a park near my house, I have noticed a tree that has almost all of it’s leaves on one side. This isn’t because branches were cut off or became diseases. It is because the other side of the tree is always in the shade of several larger, older trees.
Thanks to materialism and the lies of modern medicine intended to keep you ill and dependent on drugs, millions, if not billions, have been convinced that hiding from the sun like a vampire or zombie. “The sun is trying to kill you” we are told. When we question why people have been working in the sun for thousands of years without getting cancer, we are told that the sun is changing. Or that the breakdown of the ozone layer is exposing us to more and harsher sunlight. But guess what? Lily intelligence is still telling the lily to turn to the sun. So is the intelligence of the tulip, frog, or snake. Man seems to be the only life form that has decided he needs to hide from the sun.
There is a reason why ancient legends have horrors like vampires dying in the sun. Sunlight is good. Evil things don’t like good, so sunlight is bad for them. That should tell you something.
Getting Back Your Lily Intelligence
When you were an infant, you probably were drawn to the sun every bit as much as that lily. But somewhere along the line, you lost your lily intelligence, at least as it relates to sunlight.
When I was two-years-old, I got pneumonia and spent several days in the hospital. When I was sent home, the doctor told my mother that I should be put outside shirtless in the sun for an hour every day. When she told me that many years later, I was shocked. It seemed like a very strange prescription. But now I understand it. I know that despite what the drug pushers tell us, sunlight is beneficial. The only time it harms us is when our bodies are full of harmful chemicals from the things ( won’t even call most of it food) we eat, the chemical in our drinking water, radiations from electronics, etc. And we need to get back our lily intelligence that knew sunlight was good.
So we need to get rid of false beliefs that hold us back. Not just from the lily intelligence, but from many other things as well. We need to get rid of beliefs that the realm of matter is all that exists. We can contact the spirit worlds when we don’t believe in them. We can’t see the idiocy of materialism when we believe the illusions of it. And we can’t awaken our immortal spirit and soul when we have lost that basic lily intelligence. So start clearing out the garbage in your subconscious mind and become more intelligent than simple lily intelligence, not just in your ego, but for real.
