“To see the world is to learn not only about it, but about yourself and your place in it. And once you know yourself, you can be settled anywhere.” – Steven Moore
“I’m convinced that I come from a place where there is no concept of ‘earning a living’. All beings just exist and ‘be’ in peace. Earth is the only planet where we have to ‘pay’ to survive. I have a hard time fitting in.
People say ‘do what you like’, I like to just be and not do.”
– Neha Sinha
“Grounded” is an independent feature film about what is considered by many authorities to be “The Greatest Health RE-discovery of All Time”. The concept was tested on the people of Haines, Alaska ,
I love this documentary. Ever since I saw it I make way more of a conscious effort to go barefoot, lay on the grass, etc. Animals know to stay connected to the Earth and understand it’s natural healing qualities. It’s only us humans who go out of our way to separate ourselves with floors, carpets, shoes, socks, not to mention building our homes and offices higher and higher above the ground.
Earth has been around for like 4.6 BILLION YEARS.. does it really need an annual “Day” to be “protected?” If it wanted us off the planet, it would shake us off like a wet dog shakes off water… We should celebrate every single day that Mother Earth still chooses to keep us around…
Happy Earth Day, fellow humans.
Imagine if the world had no borders, and you didn’t need passports and visas and permits and all that crap, you could just go settle down wherever you felt you wanted to be, whenever you felt you wanted to be there. Farmers would go to the best farming land, surfers would follow the best waves, artists could chase their highest inspirations, hipsters would scope out the best cities for their hipster needs. You could live in whatever culture you resonated most with, speak among whatever languages wanted to roll off your tongue, follow whatever government or laws you agreed most with. You could choose your favorite climate, you could gaze out into your favorite night sky, you could connect with whatever fellow humans you wanted to connect with. The entire living, breathing being we call Earth would be your Mother and your Home. Imagine that. <3
The new shift in thinking is the gateway to human transformation. And because of the sheer number of people involved in this shift, and the growing magnitude of the crises that are driving us to change the way we think, we are standing on the threshold of human transformation at a level unlike anything ever before known on Earth.
