Web of life

My bark may feel cold and rough to you this winter’s day. Do not let this fool you, for my heart is warm and welcoming! 

I may seem silent, separate, apart.  Do not be fooled, for in my own way I am fully engaged in the web of life on this planet!

I may seem irrelevant to your human world, your worries, concerns, and solutions to your problems.  Do not be fooled, for my energy interweaves in intricate patterns  with that of all living things including humans.  We are in this together!

My quiet existence matters in the web of life. My existence creates a ripple and a powerful filament of love in the tapestry of the universe.  I belong here!

I want you to know each thought, word and feeling of yours has energetic reality that affects the web of life, just as my tree energy does. You make a difference ! You matter and you belong here! 

You don’t have to move mountains or bring peace to the Middle East. Simply tune your thoughts and feelings gradually to happiness and joy and kindness and laughter a little more often.

Turn off those news programs and avoid those people that manipulate you into anger and fear.   Guide your time and energy to uplifting, soul satisfying activities, thoughts, words, beliefs, friends, and entertainment.

In this way you will affect the web of life for good!  You are a creator whether you know it or not!

Take your job seriously!  You and I, along with all living beings on earth reweave the web of life with each thought, feeling, and action.

Two webs

Billions of roots hold the soil. The multitude of grasses, the flowering beauties that return year after year, those rooted organisms you call weeds, the magnificent trees of our beloved planet all anchor our soil, forming a vast web of interconnection…  Call it love!

The web of roots anchoring this abundant life mirrors the energetic web of all things, invisible to most, yet permeating and connecting all things in exquisite perfection. No word or thought or feeling of any human can be separated from this web. They are the stuff of the web.

The energetic vibrations of your feelings, thoughts and words announce you and create an energy pattern, unique to you. Others might not see this, but they can feel and sense it.

Your energies and vibrations join with those of others and yet others, and still more, creating intricate patterns and possibilities one alone could not dream of.

Just as the mighty roots of a cottonwood intertwine and interweave with the roots of other trees, grasses, weeds, and wildflowers, so do your thoughts and words interweave with the feelings, thoughts, and words of others. In this way, you are all connected at the energetic level…   Some call it spirit.

We’re in this life together!

We are in this life on earth together! All life forms are inseparable – from the mosses under your feet to to the magnificent trees that encircle this earth with their roots and branches, to the winged creatures, the scaly and furry ones.

No matter how you try to weed, separate, segregate, put distance between, incarcerate, deport, wall off, ignore, eradicate; we are all one in the web of creation and cannot ever be separated.

Do you feel that you stand alone? Perhaps it feels safer to be on one side of a wall or border while “they” are on the other side. Perhaps you with the weed killer spray bottle in your hand feel that certain life forms are not acceptable and must be eliminated.

Do you not know and feel your energies overlap and intermingle with all other living beings, interweaving and creating new patterns? This is the essence of the web of all things, the energy of which we are made expanding from our physical centers becoming finer and finer the further from the body, beyond our capacity to see and sense.

You choose! You can create thoughts and take actions which strengthen this magnificent web every living creature participates in, every atom of soil, every blade of grass, every tree, every insect, every drop of water, every reptile, every human being. In strengthening the web, you strengthen yourself!

You can also choose actions and thoughts and ideas that weaken the web of all things with doubt, fear, the illusion of powerlessness, the illusion of separateness. But remember this: In weakening our shared existence you weaken yourself, for all things are one in this universe.

Separation from others, from nature is not possible. You have never been, nor will ever be separate from any other thing.

I ask you to choose life and know your connection to all creation.
