Julie and I were in the redwoods yesterday and it’s very peaceful between the trees. A redwood forest reveals how to hold presence, showing potential growing towards the sky. We enjoyed a day of clarity walking between the majestic trees.
When I hold myself in the crystal space, it’s a place of clarity, a moment between all the potentials which are possible to live. When I walk in the redwoods, it’s a mirror to being in the crystal space but also outside of that experience. In this the redwoods are a living temple, a place where to see reflected in the redwood’s potential: our own potential to be.
Life is our temple. It isn’t required to build temples as much to recognize and show respect to places we find peace and truth within. So we try to protect these special places.
But protection is not enough.
The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico shows how easy it is destroy the world, and places like a redwood forest can be easily lost unless they are allowed to shift/grow to new places as climate changes to a new balance. But Redwoods shift in terms of thousands of years rather than to the hourly schedule of man made time tables.
I will not forget the world is a temple and will both respect and assist nature’s growth rather than adding to humanities desire to burn and cut down.
Sometimes to improve the world can be as simple as to plant a few seeds.
