Good compost may be likened, in one's life, to the fully digested product of one's past material experience. With water, air, heat, and those harvested materials from the past, a fungal, bacterial enzymatic biomass is created which will raise the composted materials into the fertile dust of renewal. The renewal takes time ; heat, the right enzymes, destruction of pathological bacteria, aeration. watering, catalytic admixture, and earthworms who will tell you that you are on the right track.
Is mediation of the infertile mind the same and as simple as the addition of the carefully prepared compost pile to the soil? Maybe not, but I have to give it a shot, at least as hard as I work out at the compost bin. It seems to me that remediation of the mind is equivalent to the remediation of the dirt and equally useful. Then you can trust that the ruminant harvests that you have brought up from your past will be re-digested with care and with luck your muscle, muse, synapses, and mental fertility will be fulfilled and stimulate new growth in your life. It's really just chewing the cud.
We aren't that different from compost. Both of us are special. We both came from dirt and to dirt we shall return.
