“People deal too much with the negative, with what is wrong… Why not try and see positive things, to just touch those things and make them bloom?”
Thich Nhat Hanh
Like the creative artists we are, we have a choice about how we create our world.
Gardens contain a mixture of flowers and weeds.
We can get excited or upset about the number of weeds in our garden and in the gardens of the world. We may wish that there never were any weeds. Instead, consider giving the flowers in the garden our attention. Give them the water.
Focusing on the flowers does not mean we are ignoring the weeds. Instead, we are choosing to put our energy into creating a world which is healthy, wholesome, and brings us and others happiness.
