There are two things involved here: the thought and the action. In thought we often consider that our life is not what we want it to be. Perhaps it is time to consider: we can make it what we want it to be.

George Bernard Shaw said, "People are always blaming their
circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, they make them."

A farmer has fertile land. The farmer comes along with two seeds. One is corn and the other is nightshade.

It is written in the Bible: "As ye sow, so shall ye reap." The crop will be abundant in what ever you plant. The soil makes no distinction between the crop of corn or the crop of poison.

Consider your mind as the land: Do you plant corn or poison? The land will not care the crop of thought put into it, it will bring forth abundance from the seed planted.

What a responsibility we have to our own thoughts! The more we plant positive thought, the more positive will manifest in our lives. The more we plant negative thought, the more negative will manifest.

We tend to have been conditioned to negativity throughout our lives. There is always the 'no' warning ringing in our ears. No you can not accomplish that, it is too difficult. No you are not accomplished enough to succeed. No seems to be the first and foremost thought we can muster when our fertile mind wants to produce a crop.

Being mindful of our thoughts is the first step to evaluation. Know Thyself! as Socrates said. In the knowing you will discover so many positive and negative traits and conditions around you as a crop of your total being. That is where self evaluation comes in, and also where self improvement takes a stand.

We have the tools of our own consciousness to consider our mind crop as well as make changes to the seeds sown in the mind for nurture and blossom. We can use things like visualization, meditation and affirmation to nurture the seeds we plant.

What the mind can see, it can produce results from on body and spirit. When we envision our lives in a positive manner with spirituality and prosperity, that is the crop we can expect to reap. When life seems to be dishing up negativity in a rapid manner, we can affirm our own good through the visitations of life and reap a more positive crop. Meditation helps us find the peace and calm within when life tends to dish up the negativity of experience.

Make sure the seeds are positive, then nurture them with the food of right action. We water the crops with the tears of our experience and fertilize (which is waste in another way) the soil with the many experiences our life offers.

Even our intent and attitude can be a part of the seeds we sow. Do we think positive in all the events? Are we prepared to nurture, water and fertilize in positive thoughts?
