A beautiful garden is the attraction of everyone. Who does not like to enjoy the beauty of blossoming flowers and the fresh green leaves? Flowers produce fruits and seeds. Seeds decide the future of generations.
Have you ever thought that your mind also can be a beautiful garden with beautiful flowers and plants? In your mind you can grow beautiful plants that yield promising seeds. You can also grow ugly shrubs that become dangerous weeds. You can create another world. You can also destroy the existing castles.
Yes, your mind and every mind is a garden of grace from God. Your thoughts are the seeds of good inspirations. Your thoughts grow up and expose your personality into beautiful products of constructive creations. Your thoughts can make others see the image of God in you and love you. They can recognize the seeds of grace in you.
Your mind can also be an ugly garden of adverse weeds. They can also make others hate you and go away from you. God created you as His replica of Eden. But you are given complete charge of it. You can plant good seeds and make beautiful flowers blossom. You can also sow seeds of ugliness. It all depends on what seeds you plant in your garden.
The words of James Allen about the human mind is quite fitting to apply for this mind garden. ďA manís mind may be likened to a garden, which may be intelligently cultivated or allowed to run wild; but whether cultivated or neglected, it must, and will, bring forth. If no useful seeds are put into it, then an abundance of useless weed seeds will fall therein, and will continue to produce their kind.Ē
You are free to sow seeds of positive thoughts that help you and others. You can also plant negative thoughts of ugliness that grow into thistles of hurting yourself and others.
You can decide if you are going to have seeds of beautiful flowers or weeds of ugly thistles.
