(every evolution starts with one)
flow on said the trees. their roots reached far into the ground from where they connected with all the other living things down there.
flow on they said. as they converted all that energy to make some much needed shade for my hot and tired limbs.
flow on said the trees as they cared for each other – sharing food with sick trees, and turning carbon dioxide into oxygen for everyone.
flow on they said as they dropped a sweet orange mango at my feet.
as I listened I heard them sharing the mysterious secrets of life and everything.
flow on they said. life is short. there are things to see and beauty to be made. be strong. there are seeds to be sown and games to be played.
with the leaves. and the wind.
find the way back to more connection and the powerful energy of life flowing everywhere. an infinitely more peaceful, meaningful, and sustainable way of being awaits.
the only question is how.
the lack of harmony I feel with the earth, the trees, my selves, and each other, is the imbalance to right.
to re-balance, my nature, with nature: this is potential. and possibility. for the human race.
a large percentage of this is so personal. I own it. I feel my way. to get closer to my heart and my piece in the dance. what do I need to get there? to the root of me. and the healing of the wounds that separate me. from me. and everything.
every little thing is a part of every other thing. and ultimately all that difference joins together into one web of life.
what do I bring? what do I love? what do I heal?
when I bring my piece of humanity back into harmony with everything the world becomes me and I become the world.
fellow humans. the time is now. like the ground on which we walk, we are so much more than we appear to be. fantastic seeds of evolution are sprouting. and the time is now.
