It is not until you start gardening you realise how relaxing it is. Your physical body is toiling away mechanically and your mind is free to wander.
One such Saturday morning I have finish mowing lawn and not its time to remove weeds. The best way to get rid of them is to remove them from their roots itself. It is during this activity that I realise that the roots system of weeds which is impressive. Weeds are a nuisance so they need to capitalise on the little time them they have before someone removes them. Survival of the fittest and a great way evolution has shaped our world.
When you remove the weeds, the sheer numbers of roots will impress you, they are what helps the weeds to grow rapidly and cover ground. And this fact is what led me to draw a conclusion between weeds and negative thoughts.
Negative thoughts are a nuisance and they have an amazing ability to spread the roots and cement their position in our minds. The way to weed out negative thoughts is to think of them as a nuisance and be also aware that if you do not get rid of them early on their roots will only solidify their position in our minds and we will be consumed of these negative thoughts.
On a regular basis explore the lawn of our mind and see if the weeds have started to grow and remove them as early as possible.
