In my many years of study under the incredible Bob Proctor there was always one underlying lesson that governed all others. There are only two directions that any living organism can venture: towards growth or towards death. Every once and a while it’s important to take a step back in order to clearly identify what people and activities are facilitating my growth and subsequently what people and activities are facilitating my death. Now, of course, we’re all going to die at some point, that we all know is the inevitable, but, the journey can be one of growth and cultivation or it can be one of drought.
If you think of your body, mind and spirit as a garden that you have been put in charge of; are you flourishing, growing and blooming or are you wilting, thirsty and dying? As human beings we have a responsibility to ourselves to plant, nourish and harvest the seeds that we sew.
Over the course of the next week, take an inventory of your life. What activities are you participating in? What company are you keeping? What books are your reading? What television are you watching? What food are you eating? What music are you listening to?
Are you planting and caring for seeds of growth, development and life? Or, are you planting seeds of drought and famine?
“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”
