How would you like a way, to be able to live a relaxed life. A life in which you express your curiosity, a life in which the more curious you are the more wealthy you are. A place where fear is overtaken by courage, a place in which worries turn into peace, pain turns into pleasure, constriction turns into ease and dreams turn into reality. Would that be of any value to you?
Let me tell you the story of the Gardener.
Imagine a garden. A virgin garden. A garden in which generations have thrown garbage into it. Garbage is carefully hidden below the surface of the land. Bottles, plastic, metal, wood… On top of that besides the grass and trees there are flowers and weeds. Lots of weeds.
I owned that garden. You might own one too. I hated so much the weeds, my weeds but did not do anything about it. I was complaining and pointing to the weeds. One day I took responsibility of my garden. I said to myself: I will get rid now of all the garbage and the weeds as well. I wanted to have a clean garden, a perfect garden, in a perfect world. I managed to carry out several trucks of debris. Besides digging the weeds I have poisoned my garden with the poison of my own thoughts. I was living a life in which my focus was on the weeds in the garden instead of enjoying as is. I postponed planting the grass, flowers and trees just because of the weeds. Until one day…
I accepted the weeds are mine as well and I can live a life in a continuous expressing environment with everything I got from the Universe.
By tolerating the weeds, I could start enjoying my garden. I could go on and move to another project. I now can see how flowers, grass, trees, little animals, live along with the weeds.
I accept now the weeds and flowers as being part of me and if I look attentive at them as they are beautiful. Visitors come into the garden and do not notice any difference. On top of that they simply find it beautiful and enjoy it as it is.
I have learned that I am complete along with the weeds and they are part of me. Now I love my weeds and nourish them as they are my flowers because we all live in peace. We altogether enjoy ourselves and we share the beautiful light of the Universe. Now I can see beauty in the imperfect world because imperfection is what makes us learn, improve and evolve to go to the next level. Perfection is static, convenient, under control. :) Control limits lives, projects, creativity, love… And it is human to want control… :)
What are the weeds in your life?
What would it mean to embrace them, accept them and live along with them?
What stops you?
What supports you to accept them?
What can you do specifically to embrace them and move on?
When? Why not now?
What will be different after you embrace your weeds?
What are you hoping to get after that?
