Three years ago, i transplanted saruma to a different location, under the eaves of the house on the north side. In that complete and total shade, it has multiplied into a couple of dozen babies.
Meanwhile, i seem to have lost the "mother plant" in the original location.
In order to bloom, we have to be in the right-for-us location. No one else, or almost no one else, may be there. Many, many other plants would languish under the eaves on the north side, but saruma thrives. I thrive in a situation with just a few social contacts. My meditation practice thrives when i have less "to-do" in my life.
Where do you thrive? Where and when does your meditation practice thrive?
