It is interesting and helpful to imagine yourself as the gardener of your life. Meaning that you can decide yourself what kind of seeds to plant, and that these seeds will effect your future life and future experiences. And, what you are experiencing today is the result of the seeds you planted earlier in life. Do you have a happy and joyful life today? A beautiful and colourful garden? Congratulations, then you are already on the right track! If you see that you need some more plants, bigger plants, more colourful plants maybe? Then you need to start taking more care of your garden and look into what seeds you should plant in future and what seeds to stop planting and nurturing in any way.
Of course, it takes some decisiveness and work to plant the right seeds. How you do this? It is your thoughts and behaviour that will result in some kind of seeds. So, being kind and helping others is a very good way to get the right type of seeds sowed into the soil of your garden, to plant nice things that you will enjoy harvesting later on. Without thinking too much about yourself. Doing things for others will get you things as well in the end. If this is what you wish. You just need to be patient. 🙂
As with a real garden you also need to water it and take care of your seeds on a regular basis, to keep the plants alive of course, and to make them grow. The constant act of kindness and caring for others will make your garden bloom and thrive. You have all the tools you need. So go make your garden a fantastic one!
Wish you the best. Take care. Namaste.
