Look around you—are most people generally happy? Are they peaceful and carefree, living in harmony with themselves and the world around them? Or do they seem to be unhappy, anxious, always flustered and fighting with people in their lives, victims of their own troubled minds and emotions? Now ask yourself these same questions. If you see within yourself and the world around you evidence of unhappiness and chaos, perhaps it’s time to re-evaluate the garden of your mind.
