Sweet: the Garden of Your Mind | Eric Mulvany #education | Education Reform | Scoop.it

....“A man’s mind may be likened to a garden, which may be intelligently cultivated or allowed to run wild; but whether cultivated or neglected, it must, and will, bring forth. If no useful seeds are put into it, then an abundance of useless weed seeds will fall therein, and will continue to produce their kind.” (James Allen, As a Man Thinketh)


The design of learning spaces that has been my focus helps afford the gardener with useful tools perhaps creating fences to keep things out or in, utensils to plant more effectively and efficiently, however, ultimately each teacher or gardener of the student mind has responsibility for the mind garden harvest.


The mind garden does have one advantage over the garden of soil in that the mind garden owner can help decide the growth. “My mind is a garden. My thoughts are the seeds. My harvest will be either flower or weeds.” (Mel Weldon) Don’t we all have a mind garden needing assistance to grow and responsibility to help others grow a prosperous mind garden?

"My definition of Abstract – physical or mental creations which modify our senses of reality." What would life look like if we spent time each day on abstractions? I am not sure, but I imagine it would be even more beautiful.

It is a long-exposure photograph of a flashlight writing. The photographer captured both the original “Teach” from the torch and the reflection “Learn” in the puddle. One might appreciate the technical creativity of the photo.
