Garden – Day Forty

0611150635-00Gardening is a labour full of tranquility and satisfaction; natural
and instructive, and as such contributes to the most serious
contemplation, experience, health and longevity. ~ John Evelyn, 1666



0611150637-00Bad Gardens copy, good gardens create, great gardens transcend.  What all great gardens have
in common are their ability to pull the sensitive viewer out of him or herself and into the garden,
so completely that the separate self-sense disappears entirely, and at least for a brief moment
one is ushered into a nondual and timeless awareness.  A great garden, in other words,
is mystical no matter what its actual content. ~ Ken Wilbur, Grace and Grit, 1991, p. 109.


Show me your garden and I shall tell you what you are. ~ Alfred Austin
