Spiritual Gardening

As the days have lengthened from spring to summer, I spend many pleasant hours in my garden, and learn many a beautiful lesson therefrom; for are we not all gardeners setting in order this garden called the human mind, striving so to till and cultivate the soil that the fruits of Love may be made manifest? I am going to enumerate some of the lessons as they came to me, lessons of love and patience working through the outer plane to the inner, struggling up from darkness into light.

When we plant a seed in the ground we do not surely know that in due time it will blossom into a flower, but working in faith we continue to tend it until we see a result, and the title seed we have sown in faith stands before us outwardly manifest, and will remain perhaps for years to gladden those who come after us. Had we doubted, had we first asked for a sign before planting the little seed these results would never have been secured.
