Tending the garden of the heart - Day 113
As we observed our garden, we took mental note of the plants that did well at harvest time and the ones that didn't do so well. Some plants, like our corn, started off great but didn't produce as well as we expected. They germinated really well but the actual corns were small.
One of the things we observed was that the plants we cared the most about didn't do as well as we had hoped and the ones that we just gave a try, like the Swiss chards, flourished in abundance.
As we compared our physical garden with our life garden, we noted that the things we let go the outcome of seemed to work out with such ease and effortlessly than those things we really desired and wanted badly enough. Only when we released the outcome and didn't hold on to them so much in our minds that we began to see our desires manifested.
When we hold on to things that matter the most as we try to make it work or cause it to happen, we are in control of the helm and we are not releasing it into the hands of God to work things out on our behalf. It is at that moment when we let go of the control and of the outcome that we see the results we desire manifested. When we hold on, we become disappointed when things don't work out as we planned.
We may not know all the different ways things can work out in our favour and we don't always know what is best for us. Therefore as the Spirit is our senior partner, we ask for what we desire, we make our decision and set our intentions but the final outcome and the timing of the outcome we release from our minds and allow the Universe to work on our behalf to bring about the best possible solutions or manifestation. You never know when something better is up ahead.
