Weeds–Everything is Perspective

A plant is a weed only within a certain context; one person’s weed is another person’s wildflower. 

January 9, 2012

One of the resources I use to improve my well being is a daily column called The DailyOm.  Much like Abraham Hicks, DailyOm is delivered to my email everyday.  Some resonate with me and some do not.  I continue to receive messages and gifts from these emails and they can can sometimes be a resource for my blog.  As Monday January 9 proves once again.

Messengers From The Wilderness,is ostensibly about weeds in your garden.  However, if you extrapolate the theme to your life, you can take away another meaning.  Who do you see as the the weeds in your personal garden?  Are they REALLY weeds?  As the quote above states, a weed is only a weed in one person’s view.  What is a weed after all?  A plant that is growing where it’s not wanted, an intrusion.

Can you think of someone in your life that you view as a weed, but someone else sees as a flower?  Everything is perception.  Maybe if you took a step back and looked at this person through anothers prism, you may just come away with a different perspective.

We are all divine.
We all have blessings.

The challenge becomes in seeing the blessings not the faults
in seeing the gifts, the treasures that we have
in seeing what the divine sees.

Look through the eyes of the divine and you will see the gifts, you will see the flowers, not the weeds.  Someone sees the flowers in all of us.  Why not look yourself.

One person’s weed is another person’s wildflower.

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

  1. You are totally right.
    Everything depends on how you see it; people should start looking at things with different eyes, so that they see the possitive things about everything without focusing on the negative parts.

    Very meaningful post Chris.

  2. This is a great post! I needed to hear this too. I have been asking myself a similar question and I think this post is just great! Well done!

  3. I live in a garden of weeden.
    Love this message Chris. So much wisdom and truth here.
    On perspective… my children have often grabbed handfuls of weeds from the yard and ran in all excitement to present these ‘flowers’ to me. And of course I put them in vases and cherished them, as though someone had sent me a dozen roses.
