Nature is an emanation of a spirit of life itself.
Nature is an expression of sacred spirit or consciousness. The force of life is the same spirit that moves in and through humans and through all living beings, sun, air, earth, and water. When we are in a deep relationship with nature, we are both one of nature and in relationship with nature. We have the opportunity for guidance and illumination with nature as our teacher and her expression of spirit as our guide.
When we are whole and spiritually aligned we are at one literally concretely at one with all life and all creation and when we make a judgment from that position, we make a spiritually grounded decision.
Nature is our teacher and our guide, but nature is also our responsibility. The notion of “dominion” does not mean “to dominate” but rather to “make home.” We have the opportunity to help all life to recover, in its natural way, from the unspeakable damage and harm which has been caused to our natural world. We are called to protect and support nature in a way that respects her freedom and spirit.
