Thoughts are the seeds that all of us have in our heads. It makes no difference if they are seeds that we planted or seeds that others and the world have given to us. Thoughts, when focused on repeatedly, are what we will take action on in our lives.

“Keep close to Nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.” — John Muir
We all have problems. No one is immune from them. From birth to death….The infant cries for milk and an elderly person may worry if tomorrow will come. Reaching, striving and working hard at being happy will never remove any of our individual problems. We must accept the fact that everyday life will bring it’s own set of problems into our lives.
