Being part of nature
Being attractive is an important factor in human life. It has largely determined our survival.
Attraction also comes in many forms, think health, security, authority, strength, caring and many other characteristics.
For a long time now, we (especially in the West) have just not been living in nature where these kinds of characteristics were vital, but in a man-made system in which a completely different claim is made on our bodies and minds. Among other things, negative self-images and diseases of affluence arise.
What more and more scientific studies are telling us is that we are part of nature and therefore completely connected to it.
This study is about serotonin receptors and the bacterium mycobacterium vaccae.
This bacterium is a very present worldwide bacterium found in soil. The bacterium has been linked to increased serotonin production where it strengthens the immune system and has a positive effect on asthma, cancer, depression, leprosy, psoriasis, dermatitis, eczema and tuberculosis.
Who sits with their hands in the earth these days?
Who eats their food directly from the land?
Similarly, many people are vitamin B12 deficient for exactly the same reasons. (Vit B12 is produced by a bacteria mainly around the roots of crops)
And I won’t be surprised if there are hundreds of more studies that give us much more evidence.
So what is this link between the human attraction and a bacterium?
Nature is always looking for balance. We are part of that nature and so if we want to get the best out of ourselves we need to be in balance.
In balance with ourselves but also with our environment. Synergy.
That balance gives energy, and energy is attractive, and being attractive makes you beautiful.
If that bacteria is affecting us, apparently it has a reason why we should be with our hands on the earth!
