How to Plant for Posterity
A few days ago I planted 30 Oriental Lily bulbs. Once they were all covered up, nobody except me would have ever known that below ground 30 bulbs were teeming with life.
The inception of any seed or bulb begins with its growing roots. These roots reach into the subterranean ground searching for water. As they grow, the roots push the seed up through the ground where it forms into a plant and becomes visible.
There’s not much difference between a seed and a thought. Fact is, a thought’s subterranean roots take hold in the subconscious mind. Your Focused Intention is the light and water that allows the thought to push through the ground and become visible. Once conscious, your actions produce the fruit.
Many of us have great plans.
Then we forget to dig a hole, lay the groundwork for our idea, give it light and water in the form of conscious action and continually to nourish it through Focused Intention.
Ever wonder why so many people are running around in circles figuring that life never changes? Because the environment in their mind is barren ground. Their brain doesn’t have room for anything new, because it’s flooded with worry about the future. That’s when you can forget about getting any good results.
When you focus your intention on how you want your daily life to proceed – something happens. Just by planting this thought you begin to relax.
Once the thought-seed has turned into a bud popping out into the sunlight, you realize the sky’s the limit.
If you really want to know how powerful your mind is, check out this timeless piece of writing – The Science of Getting Rich. Couldn’t put it down once I started reading it.
Some of the content is shocking, even for today.
The Science of Getting Rich was written by Wallace D. Wattles, who used the lessons in the book to go from rags to riches nearly 100 years ago. I have it out at all times to inspire me again and again. I’ve also made a revised and updated version for all of you who want to be more creative and productive.

P.S. This quote from The Science of Getting Rich stimulated me in a big way: “The person who does not desire to live more abundantly, is abnormal.”
