Effortless Accomplishments

Summer Fragrance HostaAfter my husband and I had been in our new Vastu home for 2 or 3 weeks, we began to notice something – an experience we hadn’t had before. Items on our ‘To Do’ list were being dealt with very smoothly and quickly.

David expressed it this way: “Everything seems to be accomplished so easily.” Not only that, but items that were not on our ‘To Do’ list, things we had no intention of doing at this point, seemed to insert themselves and then be completed within hours.

Let me give you an example. We have been doing some landscaping – planting flowers and bedding plants in the new soil around the house before the weeds decide to move in. In one area, we needed to cover up an ugly drain pipe sticking out of the ground, but it wasn’t a high priority. After all, drain pipes don’t multiply like weeds do!

However, on a trip to a garden supply business, a fragrant hosta seemed to leNew rock planter ap into my arms. It would be perfect in this shady location where the drain pipe was. I took it home and asked my husband to “just put a few rocks at the base to hold the soil in the bed where the hosta would go – no need to make anything fancy”.

On Sunday morning he headed out to plant the hosta. A while later he called me to inspect what he had done. The photo shows the result – a beautiful rock wall planter created out of rocks scrounged from our property with the hosta shoots just peeking out of their new home.

David was amazed at how easily this had come together – and he has no experience building rock walls! It was effortless and the result is beautiful.

This experience has repeated itself many times in the last few weeks. We can’t wait to see what tomorrow will bring!
