Earth-Rooted

Alchemy is rooted to the earth. No one can undertake the work unless they feel the soil between their toes.

On the other hand, most children know this, so perhaps it's adults who should be given lessons in how to just be. As a teacher at a Tibetan Buddhist centre I used to go to once said, 'Don't just do something, stand there!'
