for the leaves beneath my feet
for the clouds above my head
for the winds that fill my lungs
for the joy that warms my heart
for the hand that holds me tight
for the love thats always there
be grateful for everything there is,
because there is only so much time
to appreciate it
before things fade away,
loves get lost
winds grow tired
clouds move on
and hands get old.
Be grateful for everything there is..
It’s been a few times that I stumbled over anthroposophical literature regarding beekeeping and always found myself rather interested as it wasn’t only rules or instructions more than trying to find an understanding of the bees as a living organism. I have read a lot different lectures and clicked myself through the net but when I found “nine lectures on bees” by Rudolf Steiner online and for free available I jut had to share it. I have read it several times and enjoyed it completely.
As a beekeeper introduces the main aspects of how a bee hive works, Rudolf Steiner offers the reader a suggested understanding on why the hive works this way and how to encounter it as a living being. Through the cooperation of an well-established beekeeper and Rudolf Steiner himself there is an exact picture on the dynamics of the bees seen both through the eyes of an anthroposophist and a specialist.
There are a few different readings on bees and beekeeping available all free of charge and for everyone to get and understand on the link to be found above.
