Living Far Removed From Nature
How have we become separated from the conscious awareness of the very Life that flows through our Being? Withdrawing ourselves far from the Natural World, this is what has happened—
Long ago people lived and breathed as One Being within the very heart of Nature’s life. They experienced Her beauty and Her power, each day of their lives. With such deep and personal contact, the Divine Essence of the Source of Life was known, honored and enjoyed, and ever- present on Earth.
Thus it did not take much training for their little ones to begin to under- stand—that the life they saw reflected in the eyes of the eagle or the lion, the bear or the deer, was as vital and Wisdom-full as the life they saw reflected in the eyes of their own dear family.
The children were lovingly taught that each being carries a different reflec- tion of the Inner Wisdom and power, that arrives from the One Source: One bird can see from great heights, and plot an instant kill, while another has eyes that hold no such intention of harm.
In this way it became clear, through daily immersion in the Natural world, that the Inner, Living-Light that enabled each being to have their own, unique capacity, was the same as the Inner, Living- Light that beamed through their own eyes. And it is this direct, personal experience of the One Source, that flows through all creatures, all existence, that is in such great lack, and need today.
