There was once an earnest gardener who loved his work and his produce. One day he was walking through his delightful garden and happened to notice a weed. The gardener was particularly tired so he decided to leave it.
The next day he had to leave to visit his relatives in another country for two weeks. When he came back, the back yard was covered in weeds and all his produce was dead.
The moral of this story is "life's memories".
If we allow just one bad thought in our head and fail to remove it, it will sprout and instead of having to pick one weed, you will have too much to control. If we destroy our negative thoughts, by allowing positive ones to grow, they will display in our personality like a beautiful garden.
