The Parable Of The Sower

The disciples came to him and asked, “Why do you speak to the people in parables?”

11 He replied, “Because the knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them. 12 Whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them. 13 This is why I speak to them in parables:

QUOTE: "There is a divine spiritual Truth behind every fable, behind every myth, behind every fairy story. And the purpose of turning a Truth into a story was originally to hide it from the profane, to hide it from those who could not appreciate it, who could not realize it, who could not accept it, and who might reject it either disdainfully or sometimes even destructively."

“Though seeing, they do not see;
though hearing, they do not hear or understand.

14 In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah:
“ ‘You will be ever hearing but never understanding;
you will be ever seeing but never perceiving.

15 For this people’s heart has become calloused;
they hardly hear with their ears,
and they have closed their eyes.

The heart hardens if we go to our mind for every answer or guidance; when there is no room for intuition; when we do not trust anymore in Life; when there is no space anymore, inside; when we are only concerned with "objects" -- the created things -- but never turn to the subject, the creator, God, our Self.

Otherwise they might see with their eyes,
hear with their ears,
understand with their hearts
and turn, and I would heal them.’

"I would heal them" does not refer to a man, called Jesus who lived 2000 years ago. This I is your Consciousness, not your person. “Closer is He than breathing, and nearer than hands and feet.” ―Alfred Tennyson

16 But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear. 17 For truly I tell you, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it.

QUOTE: "As you know, all of the Bible stories are your stories; its characters live only in the mind of man. They have no reference at all to any person, who lived in time and space, or to any event that ever occurred upon earth."

18 “Listen then to what the parable of the sower means:

19 When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in their heart. This is the seed sown along the path.

20 The seed falling on rocky ground refers to someone who hears the word and at once receives it with joy. 21 But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away.

22 The seed falling among the thorns refers to someone who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the word, making it unfruitful.

23 But the seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.”
