Transplanting Our Meditation Practice
Those cuttings that i took in March rooted (mostly). I potted them in April. And now, in May, i'm transplanting them into the flowerbeds. 4 flats of begonias, 4 flats of purple wandering jew, 2 flats of coleus, 1 flat of spider plants, 1 flat of cryptotenia, and more.
One comment i consistently receive from visitors to my garden is: "That's a lot of work."
If we are committed to our meditation practice, we reap a lot of insights over time. Looking on from the outside, people might think we spend a lot of time meditating. (Every day! Where do you find the time? or A retreat? Oh, i could never do that.)
Meanwhile, other people are dashing about, living their lives, thinking they don't have enough time to meditate--or to garden.
