The concept of gardening is quite simple. You plant a seed in dirt, you fertilize and water the seed and it begins to grow. Whatever you have planted is what you grow. If you plant green bean seeds you will then pick and enjoy delicious green beans. The same holds true for planting carrot seeds, you will get carrots and if you plant potatoes you will get potatoes. Never will you plant acorn squash seeds and get peas or plant turnips and get tomatoes. It’s just the concept of planting! I like to refer to this concept as the Law of Reaping and Sowing. This Law of Reaping and Sowing applies to our everyday lives. Just like in gardening you can’t harvest what you don’t plant the same holds true for life. You can’t get out of life what you don’t put in.
Most people if not all want an abundant life! They want a life full of love, vibrance, joy, peace, happiness, blessings, and all things grand. The question is not what people want but the question is what are they putting in? When you live your life loving others regardless of circumstance you will in turn receive love. When you maintain a peaceful demeanor in all your interactions you will receive peace in return. If your focus is to bless others and share your abundance you in turn are blessed and receive in abundance. Reaping and sowing is a universal concept that allows you to obtain the life you seek because it is the life you live. Are you sowing in others what you expect to reap?
Is your life missing something? Or do you want more of something? Many times we want more, more, more but we aren’t willing to give, give, give. In these situations, it is important that we self-assess and ask ourselves if we are giving in abundance in all areas so that we are receiving the same. Many times individuals seek to receive love but they are not giving love in order to receive it. Just like you can’t plant a asparagus and harvest a tomato you can’t give anger and receive love! Plain and simple you won’t get what you don’t give. So, start giving more of what you are lacking and be prepared to be fulfilled!
This Thanksgiving remember to give thanks for all that you have been given! Remember that all you have is a blessing you received because of all you have given! Enjoy your family and loved ones! And go ahead give them some love…you will get some awesome love in return!
Love. Laugh. Adjust.
