A garden offers a perfect opportunity to reconnect to your true self and will remind you of your place in the natural world. Rather than approaching your garden as an investment of energy, you can look at the entire process of gardening, from planting seeds to harvesting food, as a way of deepening your conscious relationships with the creative force of the universe. If you are willing to shift your intentions from dominating, or directing nature, to co-creating with nature instead, you may discover a deep peace and renewed sense of wonderment.
Humans begin life in the womb, folded up like the bud of a flower. Our whole life is in the mirror of this natural form. When you emerge from the womb, you slowly unfold, just as a flower opens it petals. At its prime, a flower draws many insects to it and also the eyes of humans to enjoy its beauty.
Americans learn basic nutrition in school – the four food groups, water, and vitamins. Yet, the most important food for human life was omitted – emotional and spiritual sustenance.
You are foolhardy to think you can argue your way around how nature works. The best way is to be in harmony with it. Discipline yourself to plant at the optimum time for seeds to grow, to till the soil, clear the weeds and create an environment for growth to naturally occur.
