Up on the rooftop, on and around a couple seated outdoor patio chair sits a garden of vegetable, herbs, some outside plants, and a Bonsai. It is a great ritual to wake to water the plants with an opportunity to be outside as the sun rising it morning light.
There are about 13 plants up on the rooftop that makes the watering simple and enough room for an early morning stretch and exercise. Of the many plants, sits two cherry tomato pots. They are big pots compared to the others and sits on the garden chair. Within the tomato pots, there is a plant with many stalks reaching out of the clay potted brim. Not only the tomato plant sits, but also other plants, which could consist of plants or weeds. It is hard to tell due to the foliage within the pottery. There is something striking about the tomatoes. Every time watering, there are just a few tomatoes. Other plants around grow quite plentiful.
It was simple that there are just too much going on inside the pot. The nutrition of water for the tomatoes are being spread to the weeds as well.
Having Too Many Weeds on the Mind
Thus, the sudden spark of an idea arose. Can we be like this particular tomato plant? For a tomato plant to grow up to a nice tree ready to serve juicy healthy tomatoes, it needs to grow freely.
As for us, there are many things that can pop up on your mind throughout the course of your day. Though, thoughts can be good, too many thoughts can over crowd your general your concentration in various tasks. This could evidently slow your task work and reduce your main focus.
It is plain and simple. If the point is to grow juicy we don’t have to worry about thoughts like if tomatoes are fruits or vegetables (or any that could get you away from the point).
Just like foods help replenish the body thus giving it energy, our mind also needs a type of energy. If you feel tired, try to do a meditation. It can help free your mind from the usual activities. If you don’t have time for it, then just simply as you are driving, turn off the cd player and put away your ipods for a moment and try to just drive in peace. Come home to a quiet home. Not by turning on the music to try to feel the home with the right mood. Just let it be. Do what is necessary, but not have any other activities running around within your home. Try it for a couple times, morning, on your way to work, during your rest time, and possibly the evening.
