Inner soil

Sowing it from the very beginning of the year

January 1st 2015
Today is the beginning of a new year. And because the first twelve days of a year are related to all twelve months, do your best to live them as well as you can so as to give a solid foundation to the whole year. Tell yourself that there is not one of your thoughts, feelings or wishes that is without consequence. They are like seeds you sow in the soil of your soul, and these seeds will germinate. It is the earth’s vocation to help seeds to grow. Once they are sown, it feeds them, and water, air and sunlight also play a part in their development. So, take care: if you sow nettles and thistles in your inner soil, through either neglect or ill will, do not expect to see wheat grow. During this, the first day of the year, the seeds you sow can also be words, like ‘joy’, ‘light’, ‘peace’, ‘love’, ‘hope’… Ask yourself what these words really mean, and bury them in the depths of your soul. Watch over them, and you will feel them working to germinate little by little within you. In this way, your whole year will be lived among fertile fields and gardens filled with flowers.
