Cultural background

We breathe happily, unconsciously and constantly while we are alive, and we often have this act and all that it involves, as guaranteed gracefully. As we breathe, we grow and learn to know and manage all our first needs. We soon understand that there is indeed something that is not seen but that has an immeasurable importance. They teach us to love trees because basically it is from them that a large part of our oxygen comes from, this precious as well as invisible good. And while Life happens we continue to breathe and tending to evolve as a species, but we also tend to forget the old lessons about trees and we started to lie to ourselves and to our children when we subscribe to any kind of energy that feeds on these precious Forest Founders Beings, even when that same energy says "green" on the label. In this last breath I thank you with a chest full of gratitude, for this magnificent human respiratory system that was created here among colleagues, where ideas emerged as the very act of breathing! Naturally! We are just beginning this collective breathing!. Finally I share the words of companion Elly, who as I usually say, won the song and showed me the best way to unfreeze my English. Muito obrigado a todos! ♥ "This song came out so etheral and fairytale like, reminding me of the most beautiful places in nature. Where one does not think or speak but merely breathes. Breathing is the first step from which smart plans and ideas can come to fruition."

Put your thinking caps on
If we do what we've always done, we'll get what we've always gotten. It is time to put our thinking caps on to think again. It is time to make new choices encompassing every aspect of the planet and beyond.
