“Your minds may now be— Dorothea Dix
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.”
“A garden requires— Liberty Hyde Bailey
patient labor attention.
Plants do not grow
merely to satisfy ambitions
or to fulfill good intentions.
They thrive because
someone expended effort on them.”
“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.Read more about Perelandra’s Soil-less gardens.
