Last week I bought my wife some flowers and placed them on our balcony. Two days later I came out side and one of them was wilted and dying. I felt so bad, like I had neglected and killed a form of life. I felt like it was too late, but I decided in a last effort to give it plenty of water. I came out on the balcony the next day and to my surprise, this same plant was standing up strong. I could not believe it. Then I thought what if it is like this with all things? Give it the proper attention and it flourishes.
Then I was reminded of the times when I put my attention on and practiced the ways of Heaven. Every time I seemed to instantly have incredible things happen. Some days I would remind myself that I am a king in Heaven, the place of my highest good and things are working in my favor that I can’t even see at the moment. Other days I would simply chant my mantra throughout the day, reminding myself I am one with all. No matter which exercise I chose for the day, incredible results would seem to follow. As I thought about it I said to myself that “entering the kingdom of Heaven is like adding water to a dying plant. Once you give it the proper attention, the plant, the kingdom flourishes beautifully.
If your forgetting to water your plant, at least make sure you’re drinking water too 😛
