Gardens and Community

by Mary Cook


Divine Mother, I am working in a beautiful garden, full of color and fragrance. The plants, soil and terrain support each other. Birds build their nests here, sing their songs and feast on berries. The garden is open for everyone to enjoy—family and friends and passers-by.

Divine Mother, how can I create such a welcoming place for others within my own heart?



My child, you created your flower garden with the needs and happiness of others in mind. Now cultivate within your inner space the feelings and thoughts that will nourish the people where you live and work. Offer to them the seeds of friendliness, encouragement, dependability and lightness of heart.
