Secret Gardens
    Both abundance and lack exist simultaneously in our lives, as
parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret
we shall tend. The invisible underbrush holding us back is
our own thoughts. When we choose not to focus on what is missing
from our lives but on the abundance that’s present—love, health,
family. friends, work, and personal pursuits that bring us pleasure—
the wasteland falls away and we experience joy in the real lives
we live each day.
    … don’t forget to tend your interior secret garden, because
the seed that will blossom in outward expression are always first
scattered within. Weed out disappointments, frustrations, diminished
ambitions, unfulfilled expectations and anger about what has gone before
or what has not yet come. These emotional weeds only choke your creativity.
Let an unfettered imagination sow the seeds of possibility in the rich soil
of your soul. Then let passion tend the garden with patience and perseverance.
For, as Frances Hodgson Burnett discovered, “When you have a Garden,
you have a Future and when you have a Future, you are Alive.”
Simple Abundance — Saeah ban Breathnach

Luke 6:45
A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth
that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart
bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his
mouth speaketh.

Luke 8:14-15
And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard,
go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life,
and bring no fruit to perfection. But that on the good ground are they,
which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and
bring forth fruit with patience.

Galatians 5:22-23
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness,
faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law
