Treasure love by being present, great vitality will follow!

Let’s continue with a short but far-reaching stage-setting story. It is an excerpt from the book “One writer’s beginnings” by Eudora Welty.

“When I was young enough to still spend a long time buttoning my shoes in the morning, I’d listen toward the hall: Daddy upstairs was shaving in the bathroom and Mother downstairs was frying the bacon. They would begin whistling back and forth to each other up and down the stairwell. My father would whistle his phrase, my mother would try to whistle, then hum hers back. It was their duet. I drew my buttonhook in and out and listened to it-I knew it was “The Merry Widow.” The difference was, their song almost floated with laughter: how different from the record, which growled from the beginning, as if the Victrola were only slowly being wound up. They kept it running between them, up and down the stairs where I was now just about ready to run clattering down and show them my shoes.”

Replica to the story

I hope you agree! First of all, the story is full of love, pouring from grasped “now” moments, captured by the child (Eudora)! But what has this story to do with our mission to boost your vitality with the help of potted plant? A lot! It makes you understand the core principle of how and in which cases the potted plant can do its optimum life-changing job for you:

  • If the beautiful plant manages to find its delicate way to you, to notice its beauty. Every day, consistently and as many times as possible!
  • Furthermore if it succeeds in forcing you to be more present in the moment of “now”.

The beauty of the plant, specially if exposed in the right place of your living space, forces you to be present! And when you are present (because of noticing the beauty of the plant), you are present in the beauty of the moment. This moment holds a whole universe of incredible grace for us all! There you can and will find love, and also the vitality that follows this presence in the “now” moment! Just like in the story.  

The confrontation with the beautiful plant helps us to stop procrastinating toward “someday”. Soaking in the beauty of now gives you an undisputable power for incrementing your vitality.

The moment holds a whole universe of unbelievable beauty for us, but we don’t notice it! We rather run toward “someday” and make ourselves myriad of excuses to avoid the treasures of “now”. And we suffer and we lose by procrastination of being present! It doesn’t have to be like this!
