If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it’s not your path. Your own path you make with every step you take. That’s why it’s your path.-—Joseph Campbell

Mind Games

Today I’m planting corn and cherry tomatoes. I’m also writing haiku for tomorrow’s critique. If I stay present I will be able to do both:)

The mind is its own place and in itself, can make a Heaven of Hell, a Hell of Heaven.  John Milton

The mind ought sometimes to be diverted that it may return to better thinking.  Phaedrus

The mind is the root from which all things grow if you can understand the mind, everything else is included.  Bodhidharma

The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the objects it loves. Carl Jung

Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help. Gardening is an instrument of grace.  May Sartongirl gardening
