We reap what we sow: sow good to get good

Brad Stanton —  August 22, 2012 — 37 Comments


Since we reap what we sow we can sow thoughts of abundance to reap abundance. What is true wealth? Some people have millions of dollars but don’t have much happiness. If we want more good things like peaceful, loving relationships, health, wealth, success in career and parenting, we can reap good thoughts.

 

Have you ever sat under a shade tree on a day in late summer when the leaves are still on the trees, the breeze is cool, the cicadas are chirping and you look out over the grass and trees and feel very content? Just relax and soak in the goodness of being alive. Think about the abundance of good things that you enjoy, that you already have and more will come to you. I love to sit outdoors with a cup of strong tea on Saturday morning and enjoy the invigorating feeling it gives me. Then I love to count my blessings and feel good about each one. This is wealth. These feelings can fill you to overflowing with gladness and peace.

 

Gratitude is a powerful thing. Many people say that it attracts good things into your life. I know that when I am grateful I tend to be more abundant in my relationships. Would you rather spend time with a person who was grateful for all the little things you do for them or a complainer who is never satisfied and always wants more?

 

If you were a boss at work and you had several people working for you would you promote the grateful one who was energetic and enthusiastic, always ready to help and take on another task, or would you promote the complainer, the one who is always trying to avoid work?

 

Gratitude brings good things into your life.  Joy brings abundance. It really is true, you reap what you sow. Sow victorious and grateful thoughts and attitudes and you will bring good things into your life.

      A garden spade, fork, rake and toewrl. You can get them from any Home Depot or Walmart You need to dig out the turf (grass) the best way is to put the spade in straight down to about 4 5 inches, Do this right along one edge of the area you want to clear. Then do the same again but the width of the spade in. Cross cut the row at about 12 inch intervals. It is like cutting a square cake into equal pieces. Then use the spade just like the cake slice and slice the squares of turf out. Do not throw them away. Stack them upside down in an out of the way corner of your yard and cover them with black polythene. The grass will rot down and you will have some very good topsoil to use in your garden next year.Once you have all the turf out of the way, you will need to dig the area over. Do this with the fork, then rake the area over so there are no big lumps of soil left. Then plant your flowers, taller ones (or a pretty shrub in the middle and smaller ones in the front. To save weeding you can use a decorative bark mulch (from Home Depot or any garden centre) to put found the flowers.I hope you have great fun and a lot of pleasure from your new garden.Good LuckBeulah

      It’s absolutely ueselss. NASA has a budget and they go through the motions without any good reason for doing so. There is no long term vision. We’re roving around on the surface of a rock where no one will ever want to live. The usual argument that the technology will be useful for yet unknown purposes and lateral integration is utter crap since for this level of spending and this many scientists we could develop lots of other technologies useful now, technology has an opportunity cost like any investment. The challenge is space today isn’t to go somewhere far with a light load, it’s to go somewhere close (LEO, Moon) with a heavy load. For that we’ll need radically new technologies like a space elevator. If we’re kept up the pace of advancement we had in the 60 s we’d have a million people living on the moon by now. The moon can be used for food, electricity and habitation. All it takes is construction, for that you need materials and for that you need lift capacity. That we don’t have and aren’t working on.

      What goes arnuod comes arnuod. When you live long enough you will this is very true. You should be very careful because somewhere down the road you get it back.Good begets good bad begets bad. If you are dishonest and irresponsible you get payback ..you eventually get caught ! When you are good..you are rewarded with good friends and even though bad things might happen to you .life is much easier when you aren’t looking over your shoulder or trying to keep track of countless lies! Less stressful to be honest Even in words .there will come a time in life when it comes back.Live long enough you will see it for yourself! You live the life you build .not the one you falsely createIt may take time but will happen and Ptah .you do reap what you sow. You sow it very carefully and take care of what you sow. Everyone has unfair things happen to them but the good eventually come out on top and prevail.References : Was this answer helpful?

      Using Thank you’s frequently can chgnae the atmosphere of home and attitude of relationships. Sometimes we get so busy doing our routines, while other family members or co-workers do theirs that we forget to recognize all that gets done. Thank you’s to whomever cleared the table and washed the dishes, got the laundry started or finished, took out the trash or brought in the mail, become recognitions that the other person did something that you appreciated. Let’s not lose out on gratitude waiting for the big accomplishment. I bet if we voiced gratitude 10 or 20 times a day for the thoughtfulness of others, we might live in a different world. Of course, I have to thank Linda for teaching me this (and I’m the therapist, ha!)
