Whatever makes this earth makes all of us:

each and every creature who walks, swims, crawls, flies, floats… or stands rooted upon it. Whatever ignites the molecular movements that animate the life of one ignites those same movements within us all. And so we all hunger… we all feel… we all love. And we all die. Yet the flame that ignites burns brightly on…

Didn’t I come to bring you a sense of wonder?
Ah, didn’t I come to lift your fiery vision bright?
Ah, didn’t I come to bring you a sense of wonder in the flame?

About

We can nurture our connection
to this flame—

this mysterium tremendum et fascinans—simply by listening… seeing… smelling… tasting… touching…… and imagining the Natural World.

When we surrender to Nature’s sensate input, our souls begin to dance & sing at the dynamic interface between the Natural World and our own True Nature—where we discover that we are both the bright light within our utterly unique being… and the ineffable radiance underlying the mystery of existence.

Poetry

Despite the fact that so many of us live in urban areas, a sensate interaction with Nature remains available to us all.

We can walk in parks, feed birds, grow a potted plant on our balcony… or watch a free-spirited thistle undergo it’s exquisite transformation. No matter where we live, profound revelations of the Natural World exist all around us.
