everything in existence is singing for our sake

Gray, my friend, is every theory,
but green is the golden tree of life.

- Goethe

The forecast is for 18 above today! The snow on our front lawn could actually melt - I'm beyond happy about this. I'm heading to work but leave you with some shots of an azalea plant, some kitchen light, and some geese.....Happy Friday to you all....

"Everything in existence is crying out for a particular quality of consciousness that only humans can give. This doesn’t mean we are superior to nature, only that there’s an incredible need for a certain cooperation. The famous mystic Rudolph Steiner has said that for the agricultural process to happen, for seeds and plants, and trees to grow, birdsong is absolutely essential. This is a beautiful truth that very few people know. But we also need to take what he said one stage further, because birds call and sing not only to quicken plants: they also call to awaken the human seed that we are. They are actually singing for our sake as well. If we can start to listen to them, really listen, they will draw us into this greater consciousness I have been talking about. They will be our teachers, because nature is able to point us to our inner nature.…We are called to be there. When we can listen to what the birds have to say, to what nature has to say, and when we perceive the beauty of nature, then we are completing the circle and returning this physical world to its source through our own consciousness."

—Peter Kingsley in an interview with PARABOLA, Spring 2006 (found here)
