As we gently & persistently go about "weeding" our own inner garden by the roots we soon rediscover how beautiful, unique and colourful we truly are. Through energy awareness, balancing & management we are free to create the inner garden of our heart's desire.
There are some beautiful quotes from the timeless book The Secret Garden written in 1910 by Frances Hodgson Burnet
This is but one...if you allow thought patterns to linger that are not for your highest good it is like allowing the weeds in your garden to take hold.
One of the new things people began to find out in the last century was that thoughts-just mere thoughts-are as powerful as electric batteries-as good for one as sunlight is, or as bad for one as poison. To let a sad thought or a bad one get into your mind is as dangerous as letting a scarlet fever germ get into your body. If you let it stay there after it has got in you may never get over it as long as you live... surprising things can happen to any one who, when a disagreeable or discouraged thought comes into his mind, just has the sense to remember in time and push it out by putting in an agreeable determinedly courageous one. Two things cannot be in one place.
"Where you tend a rose, my lad, A thistle cannot grow."
