Seed of Thought
We have a peach tree in our backyard. We planted it nearly eight years ago. Some years it produces delicious, juicy peaches. Other years there is no fruit – I’m not sure why.
When there is fruit, it is always peaches.
Not a single lemon.
Unfortunately, never once has the peach tree produced money…because, of course, “money doesn’t grow on trees.” But if it did, I would go pick some and put hardwood floors in my family room.
You plant a peach tree – you get peaches. Makes sense. None of us question that.
This is a true principle. We understand this law in the natural world – we accept it and work with it. But so few understand this principle, this law, in the mental world – and yet its function there is just as simple and unchanging.
“Every thought seed sown or allowed to fall into the mind, and to take root there, produces its own, blossoming sooner or later into act, and bearing its own fruitage of opportunity and circumstance. Good thoughts bear good fruit, bad thoughts bad fruit.” (James Allen)
Kinda makes you stop and think about what you are thinking about.
Am I thinking kind thoughts…because it will lead to kind actions.
Am I thinking generous thoughts…because it will surely lead me to be generous.
Am I thinking happy thoughts…because I will be happier if I do.
“Good thoughts and actions can never produce bad results; bad thoughts and action can never produce good results. This is but saying that nothing come from corn but corn, nothing from nettles but nettles.” (James Allen)
…or peaches from peach trees.
When we do have a harvest of peaches, I make peach pie. It is delicious and wonderful. Imagine the harvest of our positive, happy, kind, wonderful thoughts! I am certain it will be equally wonderful!
