Perhaps you follow some of the leaders in the metaphysical world -- people who say that we're in a rebuilding phase in the evolution of our society. One of the things I've read over and over is that this year is the time to plant seeds for building the future that we want.
I was thinking about that -- planting seeds. In some parts of the world, this is the time to tidy up our gardening spots, amend the soil, till perhaps, and start planning what we want to grow, and where. We need to be specific and have a plan to make sure we have as much success as Mother Nature allows.
Similarly, in planning for a better future, we need to be specific and we need to plan. What are some seeds that we want to see sprout and grow in the future? I know that for many of us, it's clearer to say what we DON'T want than what we DO desire.
But that's no way to plant a garden, is it? I mean, you wouldn't go to your local garden center and ask to buy a packet of "non-onion" seeds, would you? What would non-onion seeds be, anyway? Carrots, parsley, corn, tomatoes, rutabagas? No, you need to be specific. You need to know what you do want.
Also, you need to have a plan. In a garden, you wouldn't plant corn under heavy shade or delicate herbs in the hottest, sunniest plot, would you? Similarly, you wouldn't plant your tomatoes in the midst of winter, would you? In the same way, you need to make sure your seed is planted in just the right conditions and at the best time. More on this next week.
