Tending the garden of the heart - Day 67
It's been raining for the last three days and the plants love it. When we went out to look at them we were amazed at how large they had grown, they just grew overnight. The broccolis are bigger, the cucumber and squash leaves have expanded, the watermelon grew an extra inch and the beans have started to bud.
We noticed that when we used the water from the hose there was little growth, but the rain water did wonders for these plants. We figured it must have been the chemicals in the hose water as opposed to the natural chemical free rain water which did its magic with our garden.
Mother Nature knows exactly how to take care of what belongs to her and she does so with such ease and simplicity, without all the extra trappings, and gets the greatest results to satisfy those within her care.
We add a lot of extra trappings to our lives to supposedly enhance us but instead we become too bugged down with them that it hinders our growth and inhibits our growth process. All the things that we think we need, that we feel that we can't do without or have to have to make our lives better can sometimes become a hindrance to us. Sometimes less is more. The less stuff we clutter our lives with, the more time we have for people that are more worthwhile.
When you work with the Spirit's guidance, you begin to see things from a different viewpoint. You begin to see those areas of your life that are more important and require more of your attention than that which is superficial and serves no real purpose other than to rob you of precious time and head space.
Like Mother Nature in her simplicity, God provides us with a trapping free life to truly live in freedom which promotes growth and sets the grounds and atmosphere for the growth process to evolve naturally and effortlessly in the least time possible, sometimes seemingly overnight, like our plants.
God provides the right environment and conditions for the perfect plan to work in perfect harmony bringing about the most beneficial experience for your life.
