Prepare

Wherever you are in the world right now, whether surrounded by flowers or icy cold hard ground, you are surrounded by living, growing or waiting miracles of nature. The more fertile the soil, the better the flowers grow.
 
The problem wit…h seeds is that they have their time to germinate, and when they do they need a good environment in which to grow.  The ground in which seeds germinate should be well prepared and managed with care.
 
“We plant seeds that will flower as results in our lives, so best to remove the weeds of anger, avarice, envy and doubt…” Dorothy Day
 
The flowers and bouquets that blossom are indeed the results of our efforts in life.  We should be very careful of what we plant, where we plant them and how we tend them.  Weeds grow happily in fertile soil too and they can strangle the beauty from that which should be magnificent.
 
Negative emotions such as revenge, doubt and raging anger can literally throttle us and will prevent us from reaching our full potential. We need to be aware of our emotions and what drives us in any given moment.  Life is hard enough without negative self destructive emotions!
 
So today, tend carefully to the soil in which you plant the seeds of your dreams.
 
Have a good day today!
