I used to think that explaining the process to develop human dynamics was not really talking about one process because I thought that how the human dynamic forms when I’m creating it is somewhat different than when the other person is making the approach. But analyzing it further I realized that it’s the same process, the only difference is that others complete the process in 1/10 of the time that I take in forming the dynamic. I like to use the biblical and biological perspective of sowing and reaping to talk about the formation of human dynamics because it’s how I came to fully understand it in my head.
So in the Bible there are four parables that has to do with sowing and reaping:
- The parable of the sower
- The parable of the wheat and the weeds.
- The one about the process.
- You will know them by their fruits.
The short version of the process is that you sow the seed with the fruit that you want to obtain in the land of your choosing, then you wait to see if the seed turns to a plant or tree that bears fruit. Finally, you enjoy the fruits of your labor. Ok, so it’s not that simple. I should know, since I majored in Biology. Biologically, there is a need to consider the genetic component and how the environment affects the cultivation of a seed. When I started to look at the development of human dynamics from this perspective, it allowed me to see it from a systematic perspective. It also allowed me to understand my systematic process of human dynamic formation.
Usually, we decide to pursue the formation of a human dynamic based on the substance of an idea of who the person is. The data is used to determine if we want to sow the seed with the genetics of the start of a human dynamic. If we decide that we want to pursue a human dynamic, we send the genetic code that proposes the start of the formation of a human dynamic. If not, we don’t bother to sow. We decide where we want to sow the seed, just like in the biblical parable of the sower. Yet, the sower cannot determine the effect of the seed in the earth (I know it’s a parable and Jesus wanted to show that God sowed His word to all without discrimination), just like we cannot determine the effect of our proposal in the other person. If the seed bears fruit it indicates the level of acceptance of our proposal.
What fruit is reaped is an indicator of the intentions of the sower. We get a friendship because we sowed it and the other accepted. We get hate because we sowed hate and they accepted hate.
We don’t control the process between sowing and reaping. The genetic code can mutate, for better or worse. We can sow one human dynamic and the other person can see it as something else. This can be good or bad, depending on the results. The formation of human dynamics is one where no part has full control of the process. That’s ok.
When we form a human dynamic, we have to be aware that someone else can sow something different than what we sowed that can screw with our plans (like the parable of the wheat and the weeds, crappy Spanish to English translation). We have to learn to recognize what weeds look like in the formation of human dynamics and deal with them accordingly if we want to conserve the dynamic.
The interesting thing about sowing and reaping in the Bible and in Biology is that it’s not a process that is done once. Contrary to popular belief, God doesn’t sow a seed in us just once. That’s because the ways of God is a process with phases and milestones that requires generations of sowing and reaping to obtain the desired product (like artificial selection or dog breeding). The same goes for human dynamics. The reason that I take a year to have the desired product in the pursuit of a human dynamic is because I sow just one genetic component at a time, like Mendel. Others sow everything at once and therefore can’t “better” control for genetic mutations.
Finally, in the formation of human dynamics, it’s a good idea to exchange the role of sower of the dynamic to ensure that the formation of the dynamic is a collaborative effort.
