We all think of Spring as being fragrant and beautiful and filled with color. But the planning begins long before spring.
The garden is a metaphor for life. Your wants and needs are planned, planted, fertilized and nourished.Just like the varied plants, we plan for the harvest; it doesn’t just happen. The gardener planned the right seeds, when to plant, chose the correct light, fertilizer and knew the time and season to plant the seed.
It’s the same way we plan our life. Starting with the color in our lives, our desires and making it happen.Perhaps it is with higher education or training. This all begins with a decision about what we want to be in this life and how to become this person.
Most children love the garden and look up and smell flowers and butterflies with open curiosity. They also look up to people they admire as role models and begin to think, ‘I want to be like them’. So early experience whispers its desires as the child matures a direction.
Experience leads to direction and decisions. If experience makes you an introspective person, you may be more concerned about the root of change and how it impacts the world. Your goals are not personal, but about leaving the earth a more fertile and better place.
The seeds of the imagination and the early daydreaming stage of the planting begins. The water and fertilizer is the time and effort you put into your goals. The pruning stage is taking out what isn’t important or distracts you. Finding the right place for the sun to shine is important and either opens opportunity or gives fewer options for you to grow.
Where you plant your life roots determines your experiences and opportunities. The people you meet, where you work and live depends on where you are located. If you are in a cold place you may be planting in a greenhouse, which is good, but may require different plants. So make a flexible garden and plan for diversity. Imagination is the seed. Put yourself in good soil, a place where you can focus on goals. This may begin with developing an interest in combining an inclusive plan with your higher education or skills. The seeds of your imagination will begin to bloom.
If there are seeds, there will be weeds: Seeds planted in education have to be financed. You must allocate the time to become qualified and to fertilize the seed with study. Are you ready to put in the time and effort? Maybe years of work for a high reward? If there are seeds there will be weeds, but this is part of the process, in the knowledge it will all be worth the time and effort.
The tree of life planting roots: If your goal is a marriage plan to expand the garden, the first question is how do you meet qualified potential mates. What are your needs, wants, desires and goals? Do you see yourself with this person through all stages of life? A larger garden? The early blooms of life and planting are a plan for your life harvest.
Remember, as the garden blooms and matures, so does life. First, the beginning of the relationship, then the nurturing stage, and later the harvest and benefits. Be specific in what you want in a mate. What is important to you? If it is religion, education, or interest, know this in advance. Life will throw surprises, so prepare to be flexible. Remember, someone else cannot make you happy: you do that for yourself! Be ready to pull weeds if necessary.
A life without a plan means weeds in the garden. The harvest is ready. The banquet is being prepared. The sacrifice and planning made it happen. Setting the table and serving the food is at hand. The flowers on the table and all the vegetables and fruits from your garden. The feast is ready. The guest are arriving and wine is poured, a great feast is at hand.
Your efforts have benefited not only yourself but others. The family garden grows to maturity. All this began with a decision about what you want to be in this life and how to become this person..Your banquet table with all its trimmings is the one you set and plan for yourself.
