"When you stop and consider how many thought-seeds are blown, dropped, or purposefully planted in your mind on a daily basis, it may cause you to tend to your mental garden with a bit more regularity."
"As a Mindfulness Practice, Consider the Following:Keep a journal for the next 24 hours. Make note of all the different thought-seeds that become obvious to you throughout the day. By this, I mean repetitive or habitual thoughts, either positive or negative. Don't judge what you find, simply write them down. At the end of the day, sit quietly and review your findings. If you discover thought-seeds that are growing beautiful experiences for you, see yourself planting even more of those seeds. If you notice any pattern of thinking from which "weeds" will grow or are currently growing, simply visualize yourself plucking the thought-weed from your mind and immediately plant a thought-seed that supports the idea of wholeness. Follow it with an affirmation such as "Divine mind knows how to grow a beautiful life by means of me, and I am grateful it is so." You may have to do this any number of times. The practice is to remember it is your garden, and you are the only gardener who can tend to it...."
