Finding god in a tree...

Posted by oona on June 29, 2002, at 23:30:52

this being my first spriritual psycho babble encounter (surfing and posting), brought to mind something that happened to me on Friday while coming home from work.
I had been without my Celexa for a couple of days and was a little on the edge but actually in a good place in my mind if not in a 100% comfortable place in my body.
the drive home is about 40 minutes and since I was a passenger and able to just day dream I started looking at the trees (National Forest... and seeing that not one tree is like the next tree or the next or the next... Just like one grain of sand and one snowflake is different than the next.
When you look at the tree (and not the forest) and then the next tree and see that there is about 50, then 100, then 1000, then 10000 individual trees. Then look at the forest and see those 1 million different trees. This forest is one of many, many forests.
If you put your mind to it it can be overwhelming to grasp this. Just to feel that you are one of 100 million or more and more and we are all different, just as the trees and the snowflakes are different.
How can we not believe in something, somebody greater than humankind. Whether it is a godd or goddess, or whatever. If it is something or somebody that needs to be praised or not. Just to be aware of the biggness and wonderfullnes of the little grains of sand and the millions of giant trees and the little scrubs across the dessert.
How sad if we are not able to feel, to embrace and to pass on in some way this wonder, whether it is with our art, our work or just quietly holding the little baby and letting them know with your mind and love, the love that you have received.
