Transplanting, Pre-Heat

Malva
It's a cool morning. It rained heavily yesterday. So i happily transplant volunteer flowers from the vegetable garden into various flowerbeds--a purple-striped malva, white mullein, and Chinese forget-me-nots.

I sort of recall that the forecast calls for 82 degrees today, but, right now, it's such beautiful transplanting weather.

Do you notice the tendency of my mind to believe that (transplanting) conditions are going to remain just as they are? We know that everything changes, and yet we forget it again and again.

This not seeing-the-world-as-it-is is called delusion. We want the world to be the way we want it to be. We want conditions to be they way they should be. Ha! As if that were possible.

And yet, if we simply agreed with things-as-they-are, we could be happy, 100% of the time.
