Susun: I am deeply grateful for the plants. They feed me, clothe me, shelter me, warm me, and give me breath. They provide me with medicine in exchange for a little effort on my part. They delight my senses with color, form, scent, taste, and texture. They dance in my dreams with fairy wings. They are the Ancient Ones, the wise ones. They grow absolutely everywhere, showing me that persistence always furthers. And they give me something to talk about, to write about, and to love. Green blessings are everywhere.

Susun Weed: I Dare You To Live a Positive Life
by Debbi Dachinger, Dare To Dream Radio Host, Wed. 11am PT www.healthylife.net
I recently interviewed Susun Weed from the Green Blessings radio show on HealthyLife.net. We had a brilliant conversation - see how this influences you. I dare you to take Susun's dare!
Debbi: What is the greatest lesson you've learned?
Susun: The greatest lesson I have learned is that there are no lessons. Life is an experience, not a test. There are no right answers; there are no wrong answers. Life is a picture puzzle and every piece is important, and every piece has its place. Learning lessons separates us from the intimate awareness of our life, moment to moment. No lessons!
Debbi: What is something you are deeply grateful for?
Debbi: What's the most important thing you do to keep your life positive?
Susun: My first teacher of Zen gave me my lifetime koan: The difference between good and bad is the sickness of the human mind. It is all one, you see.
Debbi: If you could DARE the listeners to do anything that will create positive change for them, what would you dare them to do today?
Susun: I dare you to start drinking nourishing herbal infusions before this week is over. Learn how to make them by watching me do it on YouTube, or by reading any of my books. Buy at least four ounces of dried stinging nettle (energy), or oatstraw (sex), or linden (anti-inflammatory), or violet (soothing). You can order them online or by mail. Put one ounce, by weight, of one dried herb into a quart jar and add boiling water to the top. Cover tightly and steep for 4-10 hours. Strain. Refrigerate. Drink within 36 hours. Repeat. I drink a quart of nourishing herbal infusion daily, and have been doing so for more than a quarter of a century. I dare you to join me in optimizing your health, the Wise Woman Way.
