Something to Share

Tuesday, June 02, 2009

I was reading today, something I know how to do just don't do it all the time. I was reading a book of self awareness. I like to read these types of books because I believe it is a topic that needs continued support. I am not one to discuss my beliefs, because they are my own, and as I don't not like being preached at, I will not preach. On occasion I run across an AH HA moment and like to share, as I will now. It does not matter who wrote it, what matters is, what is read.

"Our consciousness is like a garden. Whether it is the garden around our house, or the garden of our minds, the most important first step is building a good soil. You begin by getting out all the weeds, all the rocks, all the debris that you can find. You add compost and amendments and mix it well. Then when you plant, the vegetation will grow quickly and beautifully. Your garden of thoughts will grow abundantly."

I like this idea. In many ways it puts some things into perspective for me. I do believe I can change my life by changing my thoughts, this just made it so much more beautifully put.

Off to cultivate.......

    Thanks for this reminder that we DO have control of our thoughts and that a positive gracious mind can help us live a full and happy life no matter what the circumstances.

    Our thoughts are the force that will either help or hinder us in our efforts. The right (or wrong) thinking is key. I love this post. :-)

    Remember too that a garden needs a lot of attention and upkeep if it is to produce in abundance.

    Love it - someone once commented that if we don't get *all* the weed out including the root we leave it there to come back and grow again. Love such illustrations and thanks for sharing - it was very well said. Dee

    That was really lovely! I see metaphor in many things. I have a diverse landscape in there, it seems -- a cultivated garden, a slightly spooky swamp, an primordial forest! lol
