As spiritual human beings, connected to a higher power, we may not know what choices to make regarding both the important and the not so important decisions in our lives, and therefore decide to delegate this responsibility to the Universe. We may want to let the Universe manifest what is best for us without providing much effort or input. This attitude, despite its spiritual tone, does little to contribute to our spiritual growth in our human body.
In this physical life we need to take action to manifest our needs, wants and wishes with the Universe’s help. Our relationship with the Universe is that of co-creator and requires us to actively participate to influence in what we desire to manifest. As we grow spiritually, and thus manifest more, we will have a better sense of what is best for us – due to more confidence and a stronger connection with the Universe.
In the context of Tending to Your Garden Within, it is important to actively plant, nourish, and feed your garden within. Our intentions and subsequent actions will magnify assistance from the Universe, resulting in the manifestation of that which we desire. If we become inactive in our duties of tending to our garden within and just leave it to the Universe, we will have a garden within that will not resemble what we envisioned.
Trusting the Universe gives us more energy in our daily lives to strive toward our goals, doing our best at the task at hand, and not worrying about the possible outcomes. It is this trust, that after a days hard work we can rest and rejuvenate in the evening. The poem below illustrates different aspects of trusting the Universe.
