Why garden, anyways? Whether we are consciously aware of it or not, we are constantly writing in our mind, telling ourselves stories about ourselves, the world and our place in it, and what we want from life.
If you notice you’re feeling exhausted digging in infertile land, growing plants and fruit that you do not need anymore, and utilizing more of your precious resources than you can afford, it may be time to take a step back and soak in the impact of living in this way. This infertile land can require us to re-examine where we are putting our energy, practices we have, and beliefs we have formed, and subsequently give us the opportunity to re-define the fruits of our labour; our careers, relationships, ways of relating to ourselves, our well being and happiness, along with our purpose in life.
As you reflect on this way of living, you may start to notice a subtle Calling or Knowing that compels you to explore within yourself, to write and take action towards personal change, learning, and growth. You are Sensing a need. This Knowing will guide you towards transforming your day-to-day experience to help move you towards your purpose.
