Love Letter #116: Truth Is, Your Life is Manure

Did that title grab your attention?

Good! No one loves a gardening metaphor more than a gardener. 

Because the truth is, your life is manure. Everything leading up to this moment is manure. 
I’m not saying your life is a pile of shit or that it stinks. Nope. Quite the opposite. 

Here’s what I mean.

Using manure as fertilizer is a sustainable and natural way to nourish our gardens. When we apply manure to the soil, we’re not only providing essential nutrients for plants but also promoting soil health and microbial activity. This helps to create a balanced and thriving ecosystem where plants, including the food we eat, can flourish.

In the same way, our past experiences, whether we see them as positive or negative, shape us into the individuals we are today. Everything we’ve experienced up to this moment has been the fertilizer we’ve needed to grow and blossom into who we are today, and today is nourishing who we are becoming. 

Just as manure contains nitrogen, phosphorus, and other nutrients that plants need to grow, our past contains lessons, experiences, and challenges that contribute to our personal and emotional growth. 

Embracing our past, learning from it, and using it as fertilizer for our future can help us become stronger, wiser, and more compassionate individuals. Our personal and spiritual growth is nourished by our past experiences, guiding us to become more and more fully expressed versions of ourselves. 

In many spiritual traditions, challenges, and hardships are viewed not as setbacks but as opportunities for growth and transformation. These experiences can serve as catalysts for spiritual awakening, self-discovery, and a deeper understanding of ourselves and the world around us.

Embracing our past, with all its complexities and imperfections, allows us to cultivate compassion, forgiveness, and acceptance. It enables us to connect more deeply with our true selves and with others, fostering a sense of unity and interconnectedness.

So grab your gardening gloves and dig into the rich soil of your past. Embrace the quirky, the messy, and the magical moments that shaped you. 

Celebrate your journey, sprinkle some love and laughter on those old memories, and watch as your garden of life blooms with joy, wisdom, and sparkle only you can bring to life. After all, who knew that manure and memories could be so fabulously fun and wonderful?

With love,
