Bloom Where You’re Planted


Treatment  by Tim Phares, RScP, MIT

April already.  Spring.  Renewal.  And baseball season, always a good time.

I love this time of year.  It’s getting warmer (good thing), all the flowers and other plants are blooming.  Sometime soon, we will go pick berries.  And we just had Opening Day of the baseball season.  Meanwhile, we just returned last night from class.  Growth, opportunity, and movement are occurring.

There is an old saying — bloom where you’re planted.  This is a time of blooming.  There is no better time to bloom than now.

So as we open to blooming, we pray:

There is only One Life, One Mind, One Power, One Presence.  It expresses as all things.  It inspires all, moves all, and yet surrounds and encompasses all that is.  It is the All.

The Life, Love, Light, Power, Peace, Beauty, and Joy that It is is what each of us is right now and always.  We are the dance of those qualities, dancing their dance of possibility eternally, growing, blooming, and expanding into and as the ever new.  It is good.

And so we focus on growth, on thriving, on expansion, on the new blooms that fill our lives with glorious possibility.  We focus on those possibilities.  We choose.  We know.  We accept.  And we thrive.

I am grateful for new blooms, for openers and openings, for  all those wonderful opportunities and possibilities that fill our lives, for the wisdom to know which are ours.  I am grateful for all of this.

And so I simply accept this good with great gratitude, knowing that it is done right here and now, that that wonderful new bloom, that glorious growth is showing up right now and continually.   And I say yes to it.

And SO it IS!
