Nurturing the Quantum Shift in Human Culture
Gardens really are magical, especially when shared with others. I just spent a couple of days cleaning up an abandoned garden plot with my son and my ex (still a good friend) and planting seedlings and seeds. It was such a wonderful bonding experience that made us all feel happy and fulfilled. I highly recommend it, even if you only have room for a few pots.
Thank you for this, Billa. I'm currently living in a tiny apartment and did not succeed in getting outdoor gardening space this year. As my desk faces the western sky, I stapled pouches on the back of the desk and today have 4 herbs growing there with their heads just showing over the top of the desk. Now I feel alive and connected. In these times, these are things I have to have to feel calm. Yes to life for all for all time! Dancing, Kathie
yes, this is very in line with Martin Prechtel's new book, "The Unlikely Peace at Cuchumaquic". I'd highly recommend reading anything by Martin; it's like the Ringing Cedars from an indiginous point of view.
Every year in the spring I work in the garden and it looks so pristine with all the rows planted etc. For a second in time it looks controlled, tidy. Then every year it magically morphs into a jungle of magic with all kinds of plants and weeds and bees. I love to stand in it and watch the plants sway in the breeze and listen to the bees. It is no longer "controlled" but it's own self. This to me is truly magical. It is "free" even in this suburban yard.
magical indeed! would love to see some photos! thank you for this bright image!
Billa: It is so weird to me to talk to someone so far away. My garden is covered now in about a foot of snow!!!!!! It looks like an old fashioned Christmas card and reminds me of the poem Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening. I have an old crab apple tree that didn't drop all the crab apples and a small flock of shrikes came in and ate some of the dried crab apples. That tree is so much work because of the thousands of super sour crab apples that drop on the lawn and turn to mush. But it is so beautiful in the spring in bloom and feeds lots of birds in the winter, there are very few in town because I think most peoples would not have the time/inclination to rake and rake the crab apples up. I find it very difficult to reconcile myself to all the old trees that are cut down in these older neighbourhoods. Trees take a long time to grow large in cold climates. I hope you post some more videos because in the middle of winter it is so nice to look at warm, sunny places!
Sounds magical.. although I am not much of a cold climate person.. the snow is so pretty...
Food source!! perhaps a local collective to turn the crab apples into something nourishing?? you could inspire others??? recipes online??
hmmm. ok - I'll work on some videos.. stay tuned.. its warm here and we are waiting for good rain.. everything is a bit dry....
enjoy the white majesty!
