22-096 Garden

“Your minds may now be
likened to a garden, which will,
if neglected, yield only weeds and thistles;
but, if cultivated,
will produce the most beautiful flowers,
and the most delicious fruits.”

— Dorothea Dix

“A garden requires
patient labor attention.
Plants do not grow
merely to satisfy ambitions
or to fulfill good intentions.
They thrive because
someone expended effort on them.”

— Liberty Hyde Bailey

“A garden is not a place. It’s a journey.”

— Monty Don

Today’s MotD uses the analogy of a garden, a soil-less garden, where we connect with and co-create with the energy of whatever project or goal we’re wanting to make manifest in order to bring it to a whole new, higher level of fruition. In other words, the project/goal becomes the “garden”. We tend to it they way we would tend a garden:

  • we prep the ”soil”
  • we plant the ”seed”
  • we water and fertilize
  • we give it the environment it needs in order to grow
  • we remove invasive ”weeds” and “bugs”
  • we reap the ”produce” from our ”garden”

A “garden” is any environment initiated and given its purpose by humans, and maintained with the help of humans.

That changes things! Cooking, a restaurant, artwork, a museum or a memorial, design, construction, racing, an event, mechanics, business management, cleaning, governing, repairing, recycling, manufacturing, engineering . . . each of these things is a garden. It just isn’t growing in soil.
