The Garden Of The Soul

 

 

On this page I would like to draw attention to the content of a roll of writers, which is close to my heart and was recorded by the Essenes in pre-Christian times.

The garden of our heart also wants to be respected and cared for, so that our life can flourish and thrive.

*****************

First scroll

My heart is a garden called Eden. My garden is fertile and creative. The seeds that fall into my garden need little promotion to germinate, grow and flower. Like the primordial Garden of Eden, it can be a blessing or a curse. An unkempt garden becomes a jungle.

No garden produces more growth than the garden of my heart and mind.

When weeds and thistles are planted, they are the ones that grow. They will stifle and destroy the flower of my heart, the joie de vivre.

Our Master said, „As man thinks in his innermost heart, so he is.“ What I have planted in my garden is what I am, or in other words, is what I believe to be. And all that I will experience in my life is what I plant in the garden of my heart.

When I sow seeds of pain and rejection, I plant in my garden the conviction that I am unloved; Plant thorns of pain and deprivation. Self-pity will be the experience of my life.

I am a gardener. My heart is a garden. It is also called the unconscious or the subconscious. Whether heart or mind, my garden is the place where I have planted words, thoughts, beliefs and ideas. These seeds have been cultivated for a long time and as fruits have created the way I see and experience the world.

I am a gardener and a thinker. My thoughts come out of my garden, and my words and thoughts in turn sow the flowers or the weeds.

Like everyone else, I too speak to myself. My world of thought operates every waking moment and my mind is full of words, thoughts and opinions. The words and thoughts, the opinions and beliefs are products of my garden and they are seeds and fertilizers for my garden, so that the plants that grow in them, be they good or bad, get stronger every day, beat deeper roots and become ever more persuasive Act.

My mind is full of beliefs, habits, and descriptions. When I see an expression in a face, I tend to say, „That means …“; and if my interpretation seems to be advantageous to me, I respond with a flash of satisfaction and congratulate myself. If my interpretation says, however, that the facial expression was unfriendly and means rejection and disapproval, then I let a sense of being hurt arise in me and blame the person whose face I have interpreted.

I have not realized until now that the pattern for my interpretation in my own garden has grown. I was not aware that trust and self-esteem, the knowledge that I’m the right one and loved, are flowers from my garden.


From today I start a new life. I plant a new garden and reap new thoughts and beliefs.

I am responsible for the thoughts I have. I am convinced that I speak to myself, as I have always done.

I am the master gardener of my life. I can now take responsibility for what I say to myself. I am responsible for my beliefs. How I feel every day will be the result of what I say to myself and what I have said to myself over and over again.

If I find it very difficult to say wonderful and loving judgments about myself, it is because of this lonely little flower of self-worth that I plant today, of the thousands and millions of weeds that I have planted and nurtured , almost suffocated.

Today I plant a new garden. It is a garden of joy and new life! The products of my garden will be health, wealth and goodness. My new garden will feed me with diverse, meaningful friendships. Joy and contentment will mature in the garden of my heart!

Weedy weeds are in my garden because I’ve always thought of lack and limitations. Seeds are sown by repetition. It forms a pattern of thought and the weeds are watered and nourished, as often as I react with restitution, humiliation, anger, resentment or jealousy.

Also my new garden grows by repetition. New thoughts are built on new patterns of thought, and joyful, invigorating, nourishing thoughts become rooted habits.

My new garden will be my new life, my new ways and a new way to see myself.

Today I start to adopt a new habits. I create strong and deep roots of responsible thinking by sticking to the following daily program:

The scroll I read is a bija (pronounced bi-ha). The word means seed. The Bija scrolls contain the seeds of happy, positive, loving, and healthy thoughts that should grow in my garden.

I want to familiarize myself with such thoughts with all due diligence and to make sure that they fulfill my purpose with new beliefs, thinking patterns and behaviors.

Every day I will feed my mind, my heart and my garden in the same way as my physical body. Every day I will eat the words of the scroll like a meal and digest the thoughts contained therein. For the first time, I will read them as they stand up, so that the first thoughts of my day, which determine my state of mind and my expectations, are nourishing and healing, and make me the divine source of my being.

I will read the Bija scroll as I consume material food.

For the fourth time I will repeat the roll of Scripture when I go to bed so I fall asleep with the thoughts I have chosen for my beautiful garden.

I commit to this today.

I want to plant a new garden. Today, I take responsibility for the thoughts that I cherish and for everything that I believe.

I will take this exercise for a year. Every day I will fill my mind and my heart four times with „seed thoughts“ and thereby change my being.

There are 12 Bija scrolls. Every month for a year, I will make a new Bija scroll to revitalize my garden. >>> see page:  „Links“ >>

I will not waver!

I commit myself to this myself today.

I am important enough to fulfill my commitment and build a new life.

Today I have started a new life, created a new garden, and I am filled with gratitude!
