The tree that shook my heart.
Although the creation of this space has been amazingly inspiring, it has also been heart wrenching.
Having such a close connection to nature and each living being has a spirit, just like you and I.
On this day, as this old willow fell, she fell slow and as she did a river of sadness welled up in me, the tears return as I write this post and I know in my spirit that i felled a mother tree with a strong mother spirit. She gave cover to little animals and had been living there a long time. There is even a little dwelling in the base of her trunk. Needless to say this rocked my soul even deeper.
As she fell the light shined in and the view of the beautiful water and trees was now in view, but I felt pain in my heart and sat with her for a long time, rocked by the cry of her spirit.
I am devoted to caring for the land here and honoring all spirits where ever I go and it's something that I feel is very important for all of us to do, tho each are on there own journey.
I will always remember felling this tree and how she effected me as her life was shattered in a few short moments.
I wanted to share this with you all and In my heart I hope some of you can be aware and have Grace, respect and gratitude for all of nature's spirits. The trees, the Animals and all great things that this beautiful Earth has gifted.
All things have a spirit, even the air is a spirit. And it's our duty to care and live in harmony with all things.
Afterwards I thought about how if humans weren't here, there would be no weeds or non indigenous scattering. As nature would allow her creatures and plant kingdom to roam across the land freely without prejudice.
It's only human perception that creates what's right or wrong and in the natural way of things.
Although there are more blackberries and willow to clear, it's not being done with an unconscious heart and I'm really looking forward to replanting this area with Indigenous plants and nurturing the native habitat.
Gratitude and respect for all Earth's creations.
