I started my day with a lovely meditation in my garden followed by myÂ #morningpagesÂ exercise. The thought that came to me this morning was flow vs force. Am I allowing things to flow according to their own rhythms and frequency or do I try to force things according to my will?
I can plant my peonies where I think they will look nice in my garden, but I may never see a bloom. By understanding what the peony needs to thrive, I can plant it in an ideal location and enjoy its fragrant blooms for years.
The same applies to us humans, I think. Oh, we can always bend things and force things to happen, but there is always a certain price to pay.
Going with the flow seems like a much nicer way to grow. What do you think?
Enjoy this beautiful peony from my garden and have a magical day!
