It’s spring! I love to garden, and before winter had ended, I was contemplating what I would grow this year. I looked through my leftover seeds, poured over seed catalogs, visited my local nursery early and often. I made my plan and carefully chose the varieties of seeds I would plant, imagining the mature plants and the harvest I would enjoy and share. Oh, what potential is in each of those very small seeds!
My thoughts are seeds with an even greater potential than those I bury in the soil of my garden. Sadly, it has not been my habit to contemplate which thoughts I would sow in my consciousness, and correspondingly the harvest that I reaped from my thoughts has been meager. I have not produced anything of great significance.
I am, however, establishing the habit of choosing thoughts. I am not content with letting grow whatever will. I am unsatisfied with a meager thought harvest. I want to experience the potential of my considered thought. These days I bring the sowing of my thoughts to my awareness often. I’m going for a great harvest and intentionally planting the thoughts I choose in the soil of my consciousness.
