The world is a wonderful mirror for the garden of our minds, for the world reflects what thoughts or beliefs we are watering and fertilizing, intending to.
The world can reflect back to us what we are currently showing in our own minds. If we do not like what we are seeing then we must go to the source, our own minds and pluck those thoughts out and replant new ones.
We do this process not with judgment or prosecution of ourselves. Instead, we do it from a place of discernment, which is simply this thought, does not serve me this one does it’s when we get into judgment about ourselves, or our thoughts that this process seems hard, it’s not hard, just different from what we are used to.
