Our soil nature

“Emancipation from the bondage of the soil is no freedom for the tree”
Rabindranath Tagore

Life sure moves fast.

It can be loud, bright, complicated and stressful.

At those times it pays to remember your soil nature.

You eat food.

You accumulate a food body that is made from the food you eat.

That body grows, changes and declines until one day it returns the loaned food to the soil.

If you wish to become soil sooner neglect your vessel.

Ignore what passes your lips.

Otherwise care for your food body and it will transport you on a ride called life.

Care, but there is no point attaching to this food body for it is temporary and how healthy is it to attach identity to that which is loaned anyway?

We will become soil and so we must check in and ask ourselves if we are using our opportunity well.

We will all return to soil.

So ask yourself: Is my right use to labour for a crumby company in a mediocre industry or is there some better use of this gift that I have been given?

When you have your answer, no matter the barriers, do that and you will be happy.
