The Healing Life of Bees
Well, now this is something: from Wales in the UK, check out “Military Veterans in Wales Turn to Beekeeping to Tackle War Traumas.” (Click the “Skip the Survey” if you get the pop-up.)
What a great idea.
Many times I’ve urged service members to connect to their dogs, their cats, even a bird or two.
Now a sweeter connection in addition, perhaps.
Self-calm through connection. You still have what it takes to find the connections in the world that will bring you some peace, even if only for precious moments. Moments can turn into minutes, into hours, into lives.
It’s your mission: self-calm through connection. Then, and only then, will you be able to engage with survival sufficiently to energize life fully—a life that, I might add, has already found energy through the connections you have made.
It can be as sweet as honey. Literally.
Until tomorrow, be well,
