Yes a connection to the land, could manifest in many forms, we were at another forums and they were talking about boycotting whole foods market, because
"they lie to their consumers by advertising they support local organic farmers.When they have bought out health food store chains in the past ,the first thing they did is they cancelled alot of the previous contracts they had with local farmers.They try to buy low quality mass produced organics from california ,china and other poor nations around the world.They don't use any organic food in their salad bars or prepared foods items that they make.Most of their 365 line is non organic.If they support organics so much ,why is 85% of their food non organic.They have also been lying to their customers for years by saying they don't sell or use any food item that contains gmos.Well now they admit they have and the excuse was most of the soy ,corn,canolla ect. was contaminated.They said it is a customers decision to decide if they want to buy foods with GMOs or not.Well then why arent they using more organic food items like their previous health food store chains they bought out used to use.They have been monopolizing the industry to long and lowering the quality and increasing the price of organic foods in america.They treat their workers like dirt and enslave poor people in foriegn countries to get cheap labor.The C.E.O John Mackey publicly stated only the rich and privledged like himselm deserve health care.The company projects itself through lies and deceptions. DON'T SHOP AT WHOLE FOODS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! " - cactusmann
I kind of knew something was up, when right across the street from a recently opened whole foods, there are a bunch of plants, with little plastic ribbons tied around them for some reason, like they are being experimented on or something, I've repeatedly taken off these ribbons because we feel like its disrespectful to nature, and the keep being put back on, seemingly for no reason, stop binding the plants!
There also have been many pest and wild life removal trucks there, and its not even a place with many animals like that, its just sad, its like they want no nature to flourish there at all, wtf?
not very wholistic seeming to me
I guess its some relief that it probably doesn't have to do with the Synagogue thats up the street from them that was there before, that wouldn't make sense anyways, its been there a while and there were no wierd plastic ribbons or trucks until this point.
Tried talking to the lady at the door of the apartments about it (the apartments are also new) basically she said, well, it doesn't effect me, I said, well you know everything IS connected, she would not admit to this and shut the door on me, weird stuff.
Thankfully, in other places, it seems like cooler things are happening, loggers have gone out of business and now there are astrology reading and psychics in the same spots, kind of funny, but I don't know I've always pictured those kinds of people as being well, hippies, and having some kind of wholistic environmental consciousness, maybe I'll go in for a reading, I think magic definitely helps nature. Not cheesy magic that is constantly saying its just fake, that magicians do, but real magic, enchantments, wizards, psychics all of it seems to stem from harmonizing with the natural energies and patterns of nature.
connection to the land is what made that guy want to spread the word about this sad information, in hopes that there would be healing, lack of connection to the land is what made it happen in the first place, lack of connection by the costumers to find out the truth about where the food comes from what process it is produced by, lack of connections of the company to lie to those they serve, and also too support chemical and synthetic distortion of foods, in favor of better organic farming techniques, which many local farmers actually conscious of at least to some extent and try to use, but its on the large corporately owned farmed where things usually end up getting strange and animals are treated horribly, mass pesticides etc are used, and the ground and food is poisoned, the spirituality of farming has little life there. Whenever we take life we should think about where it comes from, acknowledge that it is in fact us, we need to stop with the pesticides, and start growing hemp in our farm fields which actually keep nutrients in the soil and keep it firmer naturally so there is less run off soil. Hemp can also be used to make wood, without cutting down trees which take many many years to grow and are integral parts of the ecosystems which they grow in.
Anyone who feels a connection to the land sees that tragedy that our century long prohibition of cannabis hemp has done to the land, and to the people both, and our sense of connection to each other which is one of the fundamental truths of existence, and every spirituality. When we legalize this plant once more and end the meaningless painful dramas which surround it, allow people to enjoy themselves with the bounties that Mother Nature can produce and enter into cultivating them themselves, first hand at some level, we will be recieving a peice of our souls back.
Connection to the land is what lets doctors prescribe non harmful herbs for ailments which that are appropriate to treat instead of synthetic pills with large amounts of side effects, connection to the land is what makes you feel good after you help to clean up a forest, or save a place in nature that is special to you, connection to the land is what connects us to the fae and to a spirituality which means something, no matter what your path is, if it is against nature as a whole, and only for you, what good can it do, the true you includes nature, the true spirituality is seeing, we are all things, and we are nothing.
connection to the land is what saved Chihiro in the movie Spirited Away, she healed two rivers in that movie, the swamp spirit who came in for a bath and that guy (Haku)who helped her, who turned into a dragon, when we remembered his true name Kohaku River.
