the Consciousness of Trees

This week I stumbled across a short video and brief article on the subterranean communion of trees; '.....all trees in a forest ecosystem are interconnected, with the largest, oldest, "mother trees" serving as hubs.' It reminded me a little of Avatar.

Professor Suzanne Simard's research doesn't surprise me. Everything is connected. One. It is a beautiful thing.
It is the way we are.

In August 2012 I visited the Californian Redwoods, for the second time. Magnificence.

When I was about 12 years old, I had this recurring vision; a strong sense of who I was. Who I really was. I often 'saw', or more accurately, I experienced myself, seated in the center of a circle, surrounded by all animals. All creatures. All that is. And that who I was, was in fact, an 'amalgam' of sorts, of the awareness and consciousness and presence of every Being surrounding me. It was palpable, visceral. Holy.

And, at 12 years old, it was challenging. How to integrate this direct knowing.....? How to walk a life with this experience ringing through me?

One foot in front of the other. Experience by experience. Awake. Loving.
