I am the Bark on a Tree
One thing I’ve been picking up on a lot lately is the concept of the human being a very basic element of nature. How do I explain this… I am a part of the universe. One simple component of the essential structures of the earth and stars. My being here is just as perfect as a tree poking through the woods, a pinecone resting in the soil, a dandelion afloat in the summer wind, the fresh trickling water in a clear stream. I did not choose to appear where I am…. and neither did you. That was chosen already. And therefore our paths will continue to be guided and shaped by what naturally surrounds us.
This not to say I have no freedom in my own life. But I am an extremely naturally occurring entity. And therefore whatever I am is just fine.
