PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, July 23rd, 2008 by John St. Augustine in LIVING AN UNCOMMON LIFE

“There isn’t a plant on Earth that can survive without taking in water in through its root system. Over millions of years, every type of grounded growing thing, from lichen to cactus to the mighty oak, has nourished itself from within. Each has a unique root system that works best for the environment it inhabits. Some have surface roots that draw water near the topsoil; others send their roots as deep as possible to withstand that winds of change. Either way, both can teach us a very valuable lesson. If you don’t have anything that anchors and feeds you, your life span is going to be fairly short…The roots of true happiness have to be nurtured on an ongoing basis. If they are forgotten, other things take their place like depression, anxiety, fear, anger, worry, and illness.”
