Each of us is given a small soul garden. Our purpose is to nurture this parcel of emotional real-estate. This is how its beauty is preserved and our spiritual wisdom grows. This system works perfectly when we tend to only our garden and remember that the sun above is always there, loving us through triumph and tragedy. When we forget about the sun, hardship ensues. We feel lost and afraid so what do we do? We start trying to tend to gardens other than the one right in front of us. When this happens, we quickly pay a price. Our little garden loses its luster and begins to wilt at the first signs of neglect. The gardens beyond us in which we meddle and manipulate, begin to crumble away at the indignity. If this continues, all the gardens of the world start to suffer.
The best we can do is remember the sun in all circumstances and continually remind ourselves to tend only to the soul garden we were given.
This is how love blooms.
