Every day you are tending to your life, by tending to the garden of your mind and consciousness. Planting, weeding, mulching, fertilizing, watering, pruning all have a place in this process. Preparing the soil, choosing the seeds, thinning rows, transplanting, and harvesting are also required.
Contemplation: How can you relate this analogy to things you are doing in your mind and consciousness to tend to your life. What are you planting? What are you weeding? What needs to be pruned? What are you using as fertilizer?
Affirmation: I tend to my consciousness with spiritual practice, positivity and joy.
