Turn the soil / To till the soil / Turn up the soil

X

“To till” means to break up, plow, or turn up the soil before planting.

X

Tilling enables hard ground to accept seeds.

It aerates soil that has been tamped down.

It can help fertilizer to be absorbed into the dirt prior to planting.

Tilling is not planting seeds, caring for young plants, or harvesting.

Rather, it is preparing the soil for fruitfulness, blooms, new life that is to come.

X

“Till” is a reasonable translation of the Hebrew verb עבד (avad). 

The meanings of the Hebrew verb עבד (avad):

First, it is often translated as “service”.

Second, this word can be translated as “worship”.

Third, avad is also translated as “work”.

There is an element of metaphorical tilling beyond farming:

a conscious reset in living an authentic life, a life of integrity.

An individual’s dedicated practice to break up old assumptions

to prepare for the planting seeds of innovation and grow is an invitation,

a welcoming and a celebration of renewal / new life!

This applied practice goes beyond one’s individual life…

Preparing, planning, and prioritizing are all forms of tilling.

Tilling prepares the soil: readying for new life and for ultimate fruitfulness.

Tilling is a central heal/thy vital task of one’s lives and a society’s institutions.

The trial of Derek Chauvin is an irreversible / irrevocable testament

of the demand to TURN THE SOIL: the executioner’s ‘badge’ was an ordained weapon

denying the pleas of humanity of George Floyd and ALL the witnesses.

WHO would NOT be angry witnessing brutality and inhumanity?

The Myth of the Supernegro Comes to Derek Chauvin’s Defense

George Floyd was the one with all the power, his killer’s attorney argues.

The FEAR of the ‘badge’ by our Black citizens, Americans, is used as official kryptonite to silence / intimidate / control / make hostage is known: a condoned, ordained practice.
