“Life has entrusted you with only one garden, and that is your mind. You are the gardener. Here in this garden you sow the seeds, care for the plants and daily harvest the fruits. Narrow-minded thoughts do not produce juicy cherries, but rather small, hard, and frustratingly bland-tasting beans. Ideas proliferate like weeds if they fall on fertile soil. Think about how a single, inconspicuous, limiting belief about yourself or your life, which was once left unattended in your garden a long time ago, was watered as time went by through repetition, grew roots, and now permeates the soil of your everyday life. It’s branches reach out into all areas of your life and ultimately leave behind bitter fruits everywhere. We have lost sight of the connection between our thinking and the circumstances of our lives. We have forgotten who the gardener is. We look at a world we do not like and we fight it. But as long as the one who conceived of the world continues to sow small mindedness each and every day, unshaken and unrecognized, nothing will change.” ~Veit Lindau
