“When the human being starts a garden, then it is certain that some form of plant life will be produced in it, regardless of whether the piece of land is cultivated and tended or is grossly neglected.
It is also exactly like this with the consciousness, because, depending on whether it is intelligently maintained or is neglected, it brings forth either rich, healthy and neutral-positive-equalised, rightful thoughts, which are creative and progressive, or, mightful, wildly growing, negative thoughts which have a confusing and destructive effect.
If no useful seeds are spread in a garden, rather only weeds, or if everything is left to fate, then only weeds and the like grow, with the possibility that, between them, perhaps someday a meagre flower sprouts.
However, if useful seed is sown and useful plants are planted, then plants which are useful to the human being will also emerge from them. It is the same for the consciousness, which can be compared to a garden. If good, healthy and neutral-positive-equalised thoughts are nurtured, then they bring a good harvest in the form of progress, success, love, peace and harmony; if, however, bad, negative thoughts are allowed, then they proliferate luxuriously like wildly growing weeds which displace everything which is not of their kind, and consequently take the upper hand to such a degree that nothing positive is able to gain ground any more.
Therefore the consciousness, and the thoughts which arise from it, must be cultivated and cared for, as with a precious garden which is kept free of weeds and in which flowers bloom and vegetables as well as fruit grow which, on one hand, bring the human being joy and harmony and, on the other hand, are certain nourishment for him/her. And just as a garden is developed and tended and cared for according to the wishes of the human being, so must the consciousness also be tended and cared for, and, in fact, in the form that all wrong, useless, negative and impure thoughts are eliminated in order to obtain the necessary space for the useful, pure, neutral-positive-equalised, right and cultivated thoughts.”
