Healthy Seeds and Gardening Practices Make for Healthy Gardens

We plant carrot seeds and expect carrots to grow. Yet when we plant fear and meanness in our lives, we're astonished when that's what we get in return. Why are we so surprised when we reap what we sow in our lives, but not what we sow in our gardens? What are we as human beings but gardens plowed and ready for seeds?  Plant healthy relationship seeds and water them with love. Plant healthy body seeds and water them with love. Plant healthy money thoughts and attitudes and water them with love. If you spot a weed growing in the midst of the healthy plants, remove it gently with love, because it too has a contribution to make, a lesson to teach. Spraying it wildly with toxic chemicals out of fear endangers the good stuff too. Healthy organic gardening requires time and attention to yield nutritionally complete foods. Why do we expect it to take less attention and nurturing to yield good results in our lives?
