Garden of Life!

Today being Sunday, I am the speaker and demonstrator at a local spiritual venue, something which I do in my spare time at various Spiritualist Centres around our area as invited Medium. I am often asked when I go to such services which Hymns I enjoy.. And always say I don’t mind as I’m happy to sing whatever the choice for the evening’s service.

But the hymn “We Plough the seeds and scatter the good seed on the land” springs to mind as I type up here, as seeds and jigsaw pieces have played a huge part within my Blogging world of late, as I try to plant a few seeds within your own minds. 

I was reminded once again about Seeds, as I was updating and deleting many of my  Old Word Documents today I came across this piece I wrote back in 2007. And as nothing is ever by Chance!  It was part of a post I did on a forum. It didn’t have a title and I can’t even remember if I posted it .. But I will give it a title today..

Scattered Seeds of Thought.

Are we not all seeds? Have we not all been scattered?

Some may have fallen upon what is termed ‘the good earth’.

Whereby some may feel they have had all the benefits of a rich material upbringing.

Some seeds scattered may have felt they missed the ploughed furrow, the less fortunate circumstances,  but have still had a good foundation in which to grow.

And others have fallen upon the rocky edges where they have struggled to extend their roots to draw upon the nourishment and courage to grow, and have shrivelled in their insecurities.

While others get entangled within the weeds, as they flounder, seeking to find themselves but being overshadowed by others until the wheat is no longer recognisable.

We may feel that it is the farmer’s hand of fate which determines where we shall fall?

But does not every seed have within it the same potential of growth?

Does not each seed no matter upon which ground it falls extends its roots downward searching for that nourishment which to feed from?

Does it still not lift its head and bend searching for the light?

Each of us has that potential to grow to bloom no matter what path we find ourselves upon.

I have witnessed many beautiful flowers that have fallen into crevices upon my concrete pathway, which I have marvelled that they have taken root and bloomed.

And I have often wondered at the strength of the weed, as I have seen the dandelions push there way through solid tarmac growing healthily and strong.

And I have planted many a good plant in good fertile earth, fed and fussed over it, only to have it wilt and die

We have many fertile fields awaiting us. And that there are millions of different seeds we can sow.

But we must bring to our attention to the seed within, the strength we need to find starts within that centre of our Being.

To unfold ourselves to the warmth of the sun

We need to reach forever upward to allow ourselves to absorb that life giving

‘Light’.

It is only ourselves that give us Labels. It is only ourselves who determines what is a weed and what is a flower..

Within Our Earth Mothers Garden we are all equal in beauty all of us grow from the same beginnings.. We each of us start life as  a seed..

The Harvest of Life is  soon about to show us what we

What we Sow, so shall we Reap..

    Love it DW !!!! Excellent. Lots of seeds being tossed about right now. It will be truly amazing to see what the final garden ends up producing for us to harvest. I hope most are good seeds and the blossoms and fruits serve us well. Such an amazing time to be here, everyday I marvel at what is taking place, so thankful I was chosen to witness it all unfold. Thanks DW….Stay in the light…VK 🙂

    Good morning! Beautiful post. It reminds me of this hymn:

    “Seed, scattered and sown,
    wheat, gathered and grown,
    bread, broken and shared as one,
    the living Bread of God.
    Vine, fruit of the land,
    wine, work of our hands,
    one cup that is shared by all,
    the living Cup, the living Bread of God.”

    And that reminds me of the life cycle… beauty in the process of life and death… how what is sown is reaped… and transformed. How it is in the reaping of the harvest, and not a single plant, that produces grain to make living Bread from the gifts of our lives… how we are both the seed and the farmer… 😉 Thank you.

    Smiles & peace to you on this beautiful day. (p.s. I love the dandelion!!)

      What a beautiful Hymn and it fits beautifully with the post Angela.. Yes I love Dandelions and I happen to drink Dandelion tea as well as loads of Nettle Tea.. Those weeds are wonderful Healing herbs.. And the Garden of Life is full of all our individual gifts. Just as each Season brings its own gifts to the cycle of the year.. We too go through our own Seasons in Life. Many thanks for stopping by to add your own gift 🙂 xxx

        I too, drink dandelion tea. I have not tried nettle tea, but I have learned about nettle’s many health benefits in reading up on the wisdom of natural remedies compiled by Hildegard of Bingen (an extraordinary visionary of 11th Century Germany.) The healing gifts God has given us in nature are amazing! So-called “weeds” are not to be discredited! 🙂

          There are many so called ‘Weeds’ Angela, which have tremendous healing properties, But the Pharmaceutical Industry would sooner we swallow chemicals which create side effects so we can then swallow more Chemicals to combat the side-effects… a win-win situation for them . And that is an area our eyes need to be prised open to as we fit the pieces together .. As we look beneath the layers of control..
          If we could all grow our own remedies and use the Weeds Alleviate pain, and combat various illnesses, and collect them from our gardens.. That would put those Big Corporations out of business now wouldn’t it… so you have to ask yourself why some Chemicals are legal that can lead to so many complications and give us so many side illnesses to our Health, and some of our most natural substances on earth are illegal?? 😉

    Thanks for your wonderful comment Sue, yes I remember too on msn spaces at one time there seemed to be a plague of crazies!!! lol. I know eventually most disappeared. I have always tried to keep away from any negative behavior on the net, I come to relax, to do art, to comment with a few good people who I enjoy having as friends here, so hopefully I’ve seen the end of that crazy woman for good now.
    Hope you’ve had a great weekend.

      It is the desire to grow my friend… I have seen many seeds spring forth into very good flowers with little furtile soil Prenin.. in fact some hardly have had any soil… as they fall between the cracks in the pavements….
      So too in life there are those who are willing to change their thought patterns, and habbits of a life time.. As they see there is another Way.. in fact there is only one way and that is to love… Love not only another, but to love life, Nature and realise that we are part of everything and everything is part of ourselves.. and together we are complete..

    Sue, this is my very favorite part of this awesomely wonderfully and encouraging post:
    “It is only ourselves that give us Labels. It is only ourselves who determines what is a weed and what is a flower.” And how many times has a breattakingly beautiful wildflower been called a weed! Bloom where you are planted, I have been told–and I appreciate this excellent advice. Also, the point at which you inserted the world “Light” was just perfect. We all need more and more light from above and from each other!

      Granbee, thank you, Yes we are all of us Light Beings.. and all of us have the potential to Bloom… We all of us seek that ‘Light’ as we aspire to grow in wisdom and in years.. It matters not from which background we fall, for we can all use the tools given… And even those thistles which may prickle and thorns that bring blood are all planted within the Garden of Life. Beside every Nettle we find a Dock leaf.. ALL is perfect if we would not search for the imperfections.. xx Hugs xx
