Thoughts while cleaning out the Hypericum
I was so concerned about erosion on the path past the deck
What to do? What to do?
Checking closer I found that it was not erosion - it was invasion I was dealing with
I remembered the heavy snow last winter, and how it bent the plants
So I took the pruner and got busy
cutting all the surplus and behold
here was my path!
The mower tidied it all up, so now it�s up to me
to maintain it.
This is a great metaphor:
sometimes the path is not lost, just cluttered up with
too much -
hardened by misuse -
left untended -
paying regular attention and performing
needed maintenance will keep the path clear and unobstructed

Whenever your inner life is clouded, your influence in the world is under a shadow. If you are fearful, you will be attacked; if you cloak genuine mysteries in dogma, opportunities for new insight will be lost. If you vacillate in upholding your principles, you will be tested. Yet, when you are firm and strong, the power of truth can break through even the most stubborn minds

It's been fun - I go now ~Lilo~

This has been an outstanding week of selfless
wisdom, which magically has made the garden outside my window bloom from top to bottom.
The ancient Weeping Cherry is wearing her draping garland of blossoms in honor of you, Lilo.
