Thought for the day, Thursday 8th December

“He was born of the ocean and the earth; his father was Poseidon and his mother was Gaia. He was unrivalled in strength as long as he maintained contact with the earth, his mother. But when a challenger had the wit to lift him off the ground and crush his ribs in mid air, he finally met his death.

He was Antaeus, a little-remembered figure from the story of Hercules. How distanced are you from the planet, and how does that distance weaken you? Like Antaeus, you were born at the intersection of water and earth, and you draw your strength from the land.

If you feel you’re at less than your prime, what can you do to reconnect with your roots?”
