Morning Meds; 11 29 19
Like the tendrils on a strawberry plant, thoughts spread from one fertile field to the adjacent.
The berry plants we cultivate in our mind may not be our own.
They have been passed onto us from our past, our parent and peers.
They contain, religious teachings, social norms, political preferences, educational bias, all crosspollinated with our personality to produce a variety we see as ourselves.
Meditation helps us to sort through the conglomeration of varieties.
It helps us to still our minds long enough to see which plants really fit with how we wish to feel.
It allows us to recognize and weed out the unwanted and the no longer useful aspects of ourselves.
We can selectively engineer our own variety.
Within our core is the blueprint of beauty, we have the power, by the use of choice, to produce plants that reflect our beauty.
