Gardening the Mind

"A man's mind may be likened to a garden which may be intelligently cultivated or allowed to run wild; but whether cultivated or neglected, it must and will, bring forth. If no useful seeds are put into it, then an abundance of useless weed seeds will fall therein, and will continue to produce their kind. Just as a gardener cultivates his plot, keeping it free from weeds, and growing the flowers and fruits which he requires, so may a man tend the garden of his mind, weeding out all the wrong, useless and impure thoughts, and cultivating perfection the flowers and fruits of right, useful and pure thoughts. By pursuing this process, a man discovers that he is the great gardener of his soul, the director of his life." - As Man Thinketh
