Everything I Needed To Know I Learned As A Hippie

We Hippies knew that:

  • we are a part of something greater than ourselves
  • eating chemicals is bad for you
  • it’s not about how much you accumulate
  • there is wisdom in ancient ways
  • trusting yourself is better than trusting politicians
  • peace and love are vital to all human life
  • this planet is precious
  • feeding your soul is better than feeding your fear
