Our body is made of the “Earth” in all its various forms, animal, mineral, vegetable and the prime elements of water (H2O) and air (O2). It is made of around 100 trillion cells, each cell is a tiny self contained autonomous part of your greater whole body. Each cell is a living entity in its own right and the body is a repository of our emotions, as discovered by neuro science and quantum physics.
Our brain (or mind) is the sum total of all of humanities evolution, via our nervous system and neurons. This is the interface between our body and the quantum field of energy that is all around us and permeates us. Our body is sometimes called the bodymind, because our subconscious mind is literally housed in our body, performing all kinds of functions such as breathing, pumping heart, self healing cuts and wounds and working with our immune system to heal diseases and many other functions that happen on “auto pilot”.
Our conscious mind lives in the frontal part of the brain and this is where we can direct our life. All thoughts create an emotional response, and also if repeated enough, emotions can in turn create thoughts, which means we get hard wired into certain states, mindsets, beliefs, and habits. This is the subtle aspects of our nature and is relevant to making a conscious EarthStar being! To be “in your element”, or when things become “second nature”, speaks of a consciously directed life and the resulting effect of resonance and flow.
The sun is our own solar system Star, of which no life would be present without it. With it comes the obvious light and heat, however the sun performs many functions integral to life, such as photosynthesis in plants. The sun (fire element) assists us in our daily life rhythm and is what creates plants and trees to grow, along with the Earth, air and water…these elements are essential to all life and the Earth itself…each microorganism and part of the Earth, is like the cells that make up a whole human being. All life is a composition of countless living micro organisms to make up the whole.
Therefore, EarthStar can be recognised as a state of being, or as a word for all the elements & universe together, or it can literally be used to describe who we are as human beings…the whole is always greater than the sum of the parts. EarthStar is a reference to our Earths Ecosystem, or to the ecosystem that exists beyond the stars, because the same energy that supports life here, is the same underlying energy that exists in the furtherest reaches of space…thank about that for a minute!
If you have ever laid on the Earth or in a pool, and looked up at the starry night sky, you start to get a sense of the wonder of this universe and you can realise the infinity and magnificence of it all! There is still so much we don’t know about ourselves and the world!
EarthStar was created as a conscious entrepreneurial vehicle in order that we can enhance the world, and know what it means to live in Holistic wholeness and be one with everything.
Living with wholeness – Wholefoods, organics, bio dynamics and permaculture.
Earthstars’ mission is to promote sell and educate people on the benefits of Wholefoods and making it part of your everyday life, but this is a just one important part of a greater lifestyle of wholeness. To truly life with wholeness is to live a holistic life, but what does that mean? Holistic means that everything is connected, life is not created in a vacuum, and the ‘whole’ is made up of many parts. The planet Earth is a whole, however there are countless parts that make up the Earth, and we believe each part is a living entity, which means the Earth as a whole is also one living organism in an even greater whole, consisting of human beings and the whole universe.
Eating whole foods is akin to eating ‘live or living’ food, another words the food has not been processed or any way, or at least in a minimal way that does not destroy the vital nutrients, minerals and vitamins in the food that we need. Organics goes one step further and is food which has not been sprayed by chemical (synthetic) sprays. The word Organic is associated with the words ‘organ’, ‘organisation’ and ‘organism’ all related to biology and the arrangement of a certain natural order.
Bio dynamics is another level again which means food grown in season is eaten in that season, the food is eaten from local production, (therefore saving on transportation and the associated process of preservation) and the food is fed with locally produced compost and natural sprays (like seaweed & neem) thus the plants receive all the nutrients they need from nature itself. No fertilisers are required, except for a small amount here and there. Fertiliser is like a steroid or synthetic drug for the human body, the more you use, the more you need, and it destroys all the living organisms in the soil, therefore the soil itself become ‘dead’ & top soil is lost.
Permaculture is another term that speaks of living in harmony with nature and as the word implies, speaks of developing a certain ‘culture’ or way of life, so it goes beyond just organic healthy eating, but involves a certain mindset, system of planting & harvesting and other related aspects of our wider life that create sustainability on all levels, which is ‘permanent’ in nature.
