It is more than obvious that there a massive push to occlude our true history and origins. While you may not agree with some of the questions, please try to view them with an open mind.

Plants Have Memories: The Spiritual Case Against Agricultural Manipulation The Lakota of North America have many stories about seeds and how to know when each plant is in its sacredness. One seed flowers during a spiritual window called the Timpsila Ttkahca Wi, or when the Moon of Timpsila (turnip) is ripe. If you were to prematurely dig for the plant, it will not grow into a full nutrient. If you're too late in collecting the flower top, it breaks aboveground, and fierce winds blow the top away, leaving no trace where the underground root is located. During the short spring-summer months the Timpsila flower is in its calling — to let one know the time for collecting and abundance.

7 ways for Modern Society to Reconnect with Nature I got a question recently which I spent a while pondering, and now am striving to try and put into words this idea that i’m having about the way that modern society and nature interact with each other.

The biggest factor holding us back from achieving our dreams is, simply and sadly, our own selves. We put limitations on ourselves everyday, whether intentionally or unintentionally. There are so many ways we can alleviate these restraints. Remember, life can either be something you embrace or something you hide from. Stop making things complicated and just live your life. Hermann Hesse on What Trees Teach Us About Belonging and Life “When we have learned how to listen to trees, then the brevity and the quickness and the childlike hastiness of our thoughts achieve an incomparable joy.” I woke up this morning to discover a tiny birch tree rising amidst my city quasi-garden, having overcome unthinkable odds to float its seed over heaps of concrete and glass, and begin a life in a meager oasis of soil. And I thought, my god*, what a miracle. What magic. What a reminder that life does not await permission to be lived. For me, trees have always been the most penetrating preachers.
