Finding the Good That is Possible
Issue 12: April 2022
Finding the Good That is Possible
Spring is here! Each year, the earth renews our faith in the health and goodness that is possible. Nature shows us that life has an innate capacity to regenerate and even flourish. And if nature can do this despite neglect and abuse and in the midst of devastating world events, imagine what might be possible with our active support and cooperation! Well, many of our features demonstrate just that- what is possible.
FHC is dedicated to bringing you inspiring content that is current, relevant and restorative, restoring us to the truth that we are innately whole- we are one with the world. In this newsletter we include original essays, podcasts, events and articles on both the good that is happening and that which is still to come. We want to celebrate and share what so many are already doing while inspiring us all toward the future, toward the health that is as yet unrealized.

From the CALENDAR OF THE SOUL, by Rudolf Steiner
Translation by Ruth & Hans Pusch
May 12 – May 18
There has arisen from its narrow limits
My self and finds itself
As revelation of all worlds
Within the sway of time and space;
The world, as archetype divine,
Displays to me at every turn
The truth of my own likeness.

Becoming a Cosmic Citizen
by Dr. Steven Johnson
There is something to be discovered and regained by contemplating the rhythms of our lives. The sun, moon and even the visible planets, when observed and contemplated, can shift our sense of time in a supportive way. There is reassurance in knowing that this day will set, a quiet and dark period of repose will follow, and a new day will begin again. The seasons will come, bearing their unique gifts, challenges and moods, and they will go, always carrying the hope and promise of their next annual appearance.

Our body temperature is closely regulated. For adults, normal body temperature can range from 97 to 99 F, with the average being 98.6 F. In children, temperatures are slightly higher, with a normal range being between 97.9 F and 100.4 F. Physicians consider body temperature a vital sign, but vital for what, exactly? Our internal temperature determines a lot of things- how well something gets broken down and built back up, how well our food is digested, what interactions take place, whether foreign bodies and microbes get destroyed and removed or take up permanent residence.

Health in Action
To truly bask in the wonder of nature is a gift that many of us have experienced, yet for many people, it does not occur frequently enough. And for today’s children, time out in nature is becoming harder and harder to facilitate. The Children and Nature Network is an organization that works to provide all kids with access to nature, regardless of background and socioeconomic status. They share FHC’s belief that spending time in natural environments is one of the most healing experiences we have available.
Co-founded by bestselling author Richard Louv (Last Child in the Woods), The Network is also conducting research to show just how supportive time outdoors is for children. Take a look at their robust Resource Hub filled with tools to get families in nature and educational materials that support the importance of time spent outside.
