Whats soil have to do with being positive? Everything! Healthy soil is dwindling at an alarming rate. You might ask, why should I care. Well as above so below. If our soil is depleted we as humans will witness the most devastating consequences yet to be seen on earth. It will make this corona virus look like small potatoes to what will come if we don’t start paying attention to our soil. Please understand, this is not to evoke fear but rather awareness.
Healthy soil is alive and beaming with microorganisms that provide a vast array of nutrients that keep our bodies healthy as well as our environment. Our bodies consist of 90% of these microorganisms. They live in us and on us. They are responsible for our brain function, and every other system in our body to function in optimum health. Most of the vegetables we are consuming have been grow in soil that has been supplemented by inorganic matter leaving it devoid of any beneficial nutrients. We have to constantly add more and more fertilizers and additives to the soil to product our crops. Most of the crops are now grown in what is called mono-culture. That is acres and acres of the same produce in a designated space. This weakens the crops even more, which now will need pesticides, herbicides and insecticides to keep them from dying. So what do big corporations do? Genetically alter the seeds to manipulate the plants production. Are you starting to get a picture of the mess we are in?
If we continue to think we can strip the soil of it’s life and not give back what we took out, we are only fooling ourselves. It is the law of nature. You reap what you sow. We must begin by paying attention to where the supply of our food comes from. Eat organically as much as possible. Grow your own garden or join a co-op or community garden. Eat locally. Our mental health, physical health, emotional health and or spiritual health are all dependent on the health of our soil. Be loyal to the soil. It is a matter of living a healthy, happy, prosperous and abundant life. It is Alive!
