Essay: Mind Garden

by Michael Corthell The mind of each person is like a garden and each thought is like a seed and requires careful cultivation to grow. If it is not it will produce weeds, but if it is taken care of, it will blossom with beautiful flowers and magnificent fruits. This analogy is applicable to all regardless of their background or social status by the way. Just like a gardener cultivates their plot by removing weeds and growing desirable flowers and fruits, a person can also take care of their mind by weeding out negative thoughts and cultivating positive ones.

''Cooperation is for idiots and fools.'' ''Competition is a natural human state, so war is inevitable.'' ''The bad in human nature is stronger than the good.'' Those negative comments come from people who obviously have a negative mindset, and this mindset is a learned way of thinking. Being positive or negative minded is a choice, therefore there are no excuses.  One of the greatest joys in life is to work together for the benefit of all. Compassion is an innate trait bestowed upon human beings by God that has enabled the survival of our species since birth. However, the degree to which individuals exercise compassion can vary significantly and be selective. "We are interconnected an
