Mustard Gone to Seed

Last summer i planted a feathery red mustard in my garden. After a while, I enjoyed its yellow flowers, and then it went to seed. Now red mustard has volunteered in my garden, and i have quite a patch of it.

We are all going to seed too. Whether we are young or old. Perhaps we are past our prime.

What seeds are you setting? Kindness? Generosity? Patience? Compassion? Equanimity with the way things are?

I have spent way too much of my life setting seeds of irritation, opinion, judgments, and impatience.

So now it's time to plant the seeds that will condition my mind in the positive ways my heart truly desires.
