Every Plant has a Purpose

If we had the knowledge of all the weeds around us and how we can best use them, we may not waste another plant. In the world of Permaculture we eat them, give them back to the earth, make a tea, put them in a vase, feed them to the animals, find out the characteristics of a space, moisture, sun and soil quality too. It’s amazing, you’ll find that every plant indeed does have a purpose.

Just as every plant has a purpose so too does every person. This is where mainstream society may have failed us. In the past and maybe today still if you didn’t thrive in the school system, you didn’t achieve good marks, you were seen as some what useless and your value seemed meaningless. There was no way to measure on paper your childhood fantasy stories that could engulf a group of fellow children down your rabbit hole, there was no value in wearing second hand, you may have been seen as peasant-like not an ethical icon as the title you were more deserving of, your uniqueness is not meant to be a curse, it was something we would like to know for the greater good, the benefit of the world.

The world is changing at a fast pace and our children’s knowledge will lead us in the right way. I remember moments in my life where nothing really made much sense the way things are done, how things are made, how long a product lives and where it goes to degrade made no sense, other than a quick thoughtless money making scheme an economy that needs injections and a high rate of infection and disease. Food without flavour. Food without nutrients. Soil degradation. Imitations. Not living within limitations. Someone changed and led a movement, of soil improvement nutrient rich clever pitch, seasonal produce not favouring limited veggies in production but seeing what works well at your place.

It is also worth saying that society in general has not valued unique skills abilities and interests, instead in some ways rats that can contribute to economic growth. If you look after children you may fall into this category too, it doesn’t have a dollar value so it’s worthless but in reality it’s completely contrary. The children today are tomorrows leaders and too many issues in childhood affect a person’s potential to live the life the love. 

As I write this I am thinking the more we do what we love and value the more beauty will be present in the world. You are here for a reason and some time in the near future money may lose value your community may gain value from the uniqueness you bring to it. It has be research that Happiness has nothing to do with money anyway. Your success may have a different definition to someone else’s. Your values may be different to someone elses, but keep in mind Every plant has a purpose.

Step by Step

Lately I have been working on being more grounded, meaning I have a job I enjoy, that pays me well every week, still gives me leisure time and time to work on myself.

I believe we create our reality and our choice to believe in a more positive, enjoyable or just progressive life makes us one step closer to this reality. The second being our actions.

So when an idea is planted it is just a seed but that seed does something, it grows. It’s a natural growth but it takes a bit of effort a bit of concentrated life force. Action!

More important than anything as I mentioned before is BELIEF. I met a german lady, a pretty spiritual lady, connected to earth and plants particularly. She would garden naked, talk to her seedlings and sing to them, nurturing them so they grew to provide for us. Who shared some wisdom with me “the most important thing in life is our believings”

Next thing to focus on was transcendence. I’m not exactly sure why. Maybe it was to not take life to seriously or maybe it was in terms of manifestion. In order to manifest we transend the third dimension.

Which is how we make GROWTH! How we plant seeds and how they grow. Sometimes life just happens but if you want to consciously create a better world – take action and believe in your ideas no matter how out there they seem and GROW!

reading this back it is such good advice for myself but I’ll share it anyway, maybe someone else will benefit. We’re all in this together.

Life’s a Beach

Life metaphors are my favourite kind of metaphors, the way nature can speak to you can really resonate. You could also say that I love when you can interpret something two ways, especially if there is a literal way.

I believe beaches are B-E-A- U-tiful, It’s where I spend my time in the hot sun shine, white sandy shores and clear blue water, in soft playful waves.

Other times it can be a raging set of waves where I am in over my head and a board strapped to my leg, wondering if I will survive, if I will get out alive. It’s funny because I know it’s just my fear. Where I go I’m lucky that there is soft sand below and the waves only rise up to about two metres.

It’s good to know though that everyone has different limits, we can be totally at ease in the ocean at all times, or we can remember back to when it traumatised us and made us cry.

But I think it’s important to remember the good times and train ourselves to get back out there even if we are dumped, if we’ve been around a washing machine and spat out, if we have been exhausted by the constant onslaught of waves coming at us one after another. It is OK to sit out for a bit watching the ocean do it’s thing.

We want to keep on pushing through though because we know when we get out to the back of this constant onslaught of waves, We can drop into that sweet spot and that feeling is what keeps us coming back for more.

Yep, Life’s a B-E-A-C-H.
