Your Mind is Like a Garden – Post 509

If you have been following this blog for any time you know that I write frequently about the power the mind has over our destiny. I truly believe that what we think about most is what manifest in our life. James Allen in his book “As a Man Thinketh” discusses how our mind is like a garden and whatever we allow to take root in our mind affects the outcome of our future.

He says, “Just as a gardener cultivates his plot, keeping it free from weeds, and growing the flowers and fruits, which he requires, so may a man tend the garden of his mind, weeding out all the wrong, useless, and impure thoughts, and cultivating toward perfection the flowers and fruits of right, useful, and pure thoughts. By pursuing this process, a man sooner or later discovers that he is the master gardener of his soul, the director of his life. He also reveals, within himself, the laws of thought, and understands, with ever-increasing accuracy, how the thought-forces and mind-elements operate in the shaping of his character, circumstances, and destiny.”

You can control your own destiny by controlling what goes into your mind. All  of the books you read, the thoughts you think, the TV you watch, the conversations you participate in, the people you associate with, and the music you listen to, these all combine to create your future.

What are you doing to sow the seeds for the life you want five years from now? Ten years from now?
