We are destined to lose our #elders, it is the #truth of #life, and as I look at these #oldladies I realize: with them, we lose increasingly #forgotten #knowledge and methods for living. We lose an intrinsic knowing of innumerable things, from how to put food by in times of shortage, living on an incredibly small budget, the value of money backed by gold, treating illness with nutrition and lost medicines, stoytelling, eating dinner at a table without television, vacations without cell phones.
Dedicated goat mothers like these two are hard to find. They would give their lives for their babies, love them, mourn for their losses, parent and even nurse other kids, produce willingly and enjoy being milked and cherish their humans.
Look to the old and the wise and listen; turn off the TV and think critically for yourself on one subject each day; pick something youre confident in, something that box keeps telling you to care about and use an unbiased search engine to see what you can find. Consider the #advertising you are inundated with, what is it really saying? What hints and subliminals is it giving you?
Look in front of you, what do you see? Why are you on IG or FB? What keeps you scrolling? What keeps you checking that post? Plant a #seed, check it every day, 24 times a day and you will find something valuable erupting forth from the soil like your #soul and #purpose wishes to do.
Get a #goat. They #inspire deep #thoughts as they bring you to the here and now, and #challenge you in every way.
