Daily Good: Kiss the Ground: The Soil Story

To forget how to dig the earth and to tend the soil is to forget ourselves.

  • Mahatma Gandhi –

Kiss the Ground: The Soil Story

“Science meets inspiration in this tale of nature’s best hidden innovation: soil. ‘The Soil Story,’made by Kiss the Ground, is a five-minute film that shares the importance of healthy soil for a healthy planet.

The film was directed in partnership with Louis Fox, best-known for the acclaimed viral series, ‘The Story of Stuff’.” Watch the trailer here. { read more }

Pagan Playlist: Mordred’s Lullaby (TOL mix)



“You never will be the person you can be if pressure, tension and discipline are taken out of your life.”
— James G. Bilkey

We need tension in our lives. It’s the force of personal evolution — it sparks creativity and higher consciousness. If we’re not comfortable with a situation, we try to improve it, right?

Tension arises through our experience of opposites. These opposites fight each other as each one struggles for dominance. Tension is transformed when two opposite dimensions of reality are brought together in balance and in wholeness.

Know that tension is an integral part of growth. Instead of avoiding or resisting tension when it arises, identify the opposing forces at play. Make space for each of them to be there together and the tension will transform.

We encounter tensions between positives and negatives, mind and body, self and environment, self and others, and personality and soul – the dualities in our lives.

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”
— Neale Donald Walsch

Did you know that for every smile you smile, more than you give will come your way?

That for every “thing” you think of, it moves closer to you?

And that for all the love you share, the younger you’ll look, the happier you’ll feel, and the bouncier you’ll walk?

Always go for more bouncy,

Daily Wisdom
January 25, 2021

“To be tested is good. The challenged life may be the best therapist.”

-Gail Sheehy, 1986

So here’s our challenge. Every day is a new day, a new start. What shall we do with ourselves? I know, we’re busy people, we have enough to do. But are we challenging ourselves? Are we learning and growing and stretching ourselves to do the best that we can every day? It doesn’t matter what we do so much as how we go about doing it. We meet a challenge by going for it!

-Lissa Coffey
