When you expand your awareness to include the spirits in all things, the rocks, trees, clouds, insects, plants and animals, the land you call home, the other people around you, you expand your experience of life.
You expand your understanding of the oneness of all things You see life from a different perspective like a hawk soaring overhead, or a snake gliding across rough pavement or through the tall grass.
When you expand your awareness to know what hawk knows, you will feel and know the warm updraft under your wide open wings, effortlessly holding you aloft above the immense landscape where you make your living.
When you expand your awareness to know what snake knows, you drink in the earthy smell of soil, dead leaves, and rough pavement beneath your belly, you sense the texture and solidity of the ground, you feel the stiff stems of grass anchored to the earth as you glide past.
When you expand and allow yourself to know these things and to experience them, you will gain respect for all living creatures and the great web of life that sustains us.
Always remember this! Nothing can be separated from the whole.
