A Message from a bumblebee…

“So, there I was removing a few dead heads from the zinnia garden, when I heard the familiar buzzing nearby. I turned to greet our visitor who was busily checking out the fresh smorgasbord of the day. Of course, I welcomed her and praised her beauty, which she normally accepts without fanfare, but that day, she surprised me. She flew upwards towards my face, but kept a very respectable distance so as not to frighten me, and just hovered there. At first I was taken aback, then amused, and then a brain cell fired. I realized she was trying to communicate.

Here are the bumblebee’s exact words: ‘The Mother is in great pain and she needs our help. We are doing all that we can, but it is not enough. We make headway, but one human can come along and in a matter of minutes destroy everything that we have achieved . Your species does not realize how destructive they are, or perhaps humans simply do not care. We hope this is not true. That is not our perception of humans, but humankind’s lack of awareness has catastrophic consequences. We need your help to save the Earth.

Will you please help us? I know that you are of goodness. I see how you take care of this garden. The Earth is everyone’s garden, and she must be treated as well as you treat this small space. Thank you for taking such good care of us. And please help us by teaching others about the crisis that is occurring.’ With that said, the messenger zoomed away to a nearby flower. She nourished quickly and then zoomed back again and thanked me for listening. It was such a lovely encounter.”

Judging Other People…

A new perspective of our world…

“What unraveled, Dear, was a new perspective of our world. As I proceeded down the trail, the plants glowed as I came near to them. Some were more brilliant than others, but all gave off some level of light. And that marvelous colony of ferns that we are both so smitten with was spectacular. It was as if an entire community switched on their lights for the outsider passing by. Even as I continued along the trail, the ferns seemed to be the most exuberant. Their response seemed to be inter-relational. As my eyes reached further into the woods, singular ferns would brighten when I looked in their direction.

“And then, a lovely family of deer came out of a heavily wooded area, and what I witnessed was amazing. As the family of three walked through the area, the plants shimmered, lighting the way for them. The plant life was providing light for all who passed by, including a great horned owl that flew high up into that old towering white pine. As she flew upward, the branches sparkled, lighting the way for her until she landed comfortably on a large limb. Then the tree dimmed so that the owl was hidden safely by the darkness. It truly was a marvelous sight to behold. This adventure continued from one location to the next until the morning sun took over responsibility for bringing light to the area.”

An Avid Nature Lover…

“I’ve always considered myself to be an avid nature lover, and in many respects I am; however, I now realize how limited my involvement with nature really is. Thinking that you are Lover of Mother Nature isn’t good enough. With that title comes responsibility! It requires commitment, activism, perseverance, loving-kindness, respectfulness, and dedication to the world around us. And at a base level, it means getting to know the Earth and her inhabitants…really getting to know them, not just pretending to yourself that you know them. It means being consciously aware of other species and developing relationships with them, so that you actually know what their needs and preferences are. It means learning about and being aware of how to mutually coexist with these other beings that also live on this beautiful planet.”
