Seeds of Kindness

“Everything under heaven is a sacred vessel and cannot be controlled. Trying to control leads to ruin. Trying to grasp, we lose. Allow your life to unfold naturally. Know that it too is a vessel of perfection.”

When we begin to view life in its sacred perfection, it changes the energy we bring to our experience. Rather than attempting to force events and people to accommodate our timetable and desires, we seek instead to nurture the seeds we have planted and give them the time they need to flourish.The thoughts and actions of today are creating the reality of tomorrow. Give up needing to control with the knowledge that all will unfold in the perfect way at the perfect time. Tend your garden with love. Remove the weeds of fear and doubt as they arise so they don’t steal vital energy and nutrients from the seeds you have planted.

Surrender is a mental process. We must release the need to judge and become loving witnesses of our life experience. Practice this by choosing an area of your life where you typically feel the need to control. Purposely choose to surrender today and notice how strongly the ego reacts. Keep a healthy inner dialogue and bring yourself back to peace and balance as often as required. To live in harmony with life is to allow it to unfold without interference.


“A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it. It just blooms.”
~Zen Shin~
To flower is to spread seeds of infinite possibility in a celebration of life and love. There are showers of blessings waiting to nourish the soul and sharing gifts of joy is the most authentic way to express your true, peaceful nature. Each time your enlightenment is embodied through conscious interaction, you can activate a sympathetic response from those around you.
Let your life be your message. Like the lotus rising out of muddy waters, your flowering is the culmination of absorbing energy and strength from facing challenges in your experience. All that is required is to be. There is no reason to compare. Your awareness is unique.
This lifetime is merely one expression of your interpretation of the Divine. The insights and gifts you have to share may be fleeting in the overall scheme of things, but the waves of possibility that emit from them are infinite. The integration of these facets create your unique way of being in the world… and we are graced by your presence.


“You don’t have to remind a flower when its time to bloom is near; it has been preparing for it all of its life.”
~Matshona Dhliwayo~

As we learn to transcend the mechanics of the ego and rise above thought, we are able to recognize the sacredness in life and within ourselves. All that you see is a reflection of your current state of consciousness; therefore, choose to periodically remove yourself from outside distraction and just be. Experience the beauty of life without mental chatter. Immerse yourself in the magic of the present moment and in the stillness, feel the vibrant response of your soul.

When we spend time in nature in this manner, our energy is replenished. The stresses of the day become less important as simple gratitude transforms the mundane into the sacred. The small, ordinary things of life become vehicles of spiritual awakening. The laugh of a child, the love of a dog, clouds creating pictures in the sky… everything is the voice of the Divine. Recognizing this, you are enlightened.
