In most plants (such as the tree) the roots are the part of the plant that attaches it to the ground to convey nourishment to the plant so it can grow. Strong roots are essential for the well being of plant life.
Roots of ancestry are less and less important as cultures combine with others in the ever increasing migration of peoples to different countries and lands.
Roots of family ties have been pretty much pushed usunder by societal changes where individuals are grouped by ages, and employment as to where they will be, becoming separated from the nurturing of a rich, healthy family environment (of all ages, young, adult, elderly).
Roots from comradery within the workforce where people used to get a job or hire on for their career for most of their working years. This happens rarely now.
Roots from the community and organizations where change is constant and many organizations (including churches) are failing because of monetary considerations, and different values and interests by local individuals.
And as a result of all the above, more and more of us prefer to connect with one another via the instant connection of modern technology.
Politics – local, national, and international? Well, let’s not even go there, shall we? So what are we left with then!
Where are the roots to be found for humanity to come together, and grow on? And how can we find them?
We create our roots. Beginning at the heart of things. The heart of the human being and who we really are. Remembering that some things are of a natural order. No special studies or double blind testing needed to just “know” how you feel about yourself and those around you.
And we are at the beginning of awareness again. The hearts are gathering around the world. The roots are beginning to spread. We, many of us, are remembering. More time is needed, but it is happening.
In the meantime civilization goes on it’s way, not necessarily expanding humanities capabilities but running parallel with technology, nudging us, reminding us that this isn’t quite right! that at some point in time, we lost our way.
And it’s time to get our roots back again, so we can finally begin to realize our full potential in life as human beings! Past time, actually, but not too late!
Thank you for stopping by, have a wonderful Friday!
