A tiny spec within an immeasurable vastness; she wobbles as she rotates and tilts in her orbit around the sun and through the Galaxy. When the sun throws its rays upon her, she displays her beautiful seas and landmasses. We named her the Blue Planet; she is our Mother Earth.
When we expand our thoughts we realise that Earth is but a single planet in our Solar system; our solar system but one of billions within the Galaxy; the Milky Way but one Galaxy within the Universe, and the Universe but one within the Greater never ending Cosmos. Yes, Science has seen the end of this Universe… but that there is more… much more!
Should we reverse the view from the Universe’s standpoint, we will observe a very different picture! When we look into our own insignificance, perhaps then will we realize that If the Divine has a sorrow; it must surely be humanity’s arrogance! If the Life Force has eyes and tears, It would cry and be filled with immeasurable pain as through the human destruction of Earth’s habitat; we are in fact denying the Universal Energy Its life expression, as the breath of Nature is the Creator’s physical body and It, as a Sacred Creation is dying at our hands.
When we consider the word life, we should accept that each wind that blows, each volcano and indeed each wave or desert dune represents an expression of life within its own form and structure. All life forms part of the Original Creation and thus determine our very existence.
Through failure to acknowledge and respect all life we limit ourselves to the basic physical expressions to experience from our greater, i.e. spiritual awareness. Without the awakening to our multi dimensional awareness into love, knowledge and vision, we will remain mindless entities, devoid of life’s potential marvel.
We can only find self-fullfilment by awakening our spiritual awareness, which equates to expressing in harmony with all of Creation. Unless we open up our heart centre to include nature, we cannot claim to know life to the fullest, nor to love the Creator, as It breathes through Nature and we are but a mere a particles within this Majesty of Nature.
To discover the greater human expression it requires that we feel pain that does not belong to us; to see life in a rainbow, to hear the flight of a bird. If we allow these wonders to touch our inner, it will evoke an emotion beyond human words. It will also bring the moments when tears flow for the beauty in hearing the song of a Robin, or, your chest feels as if it is torn apart from pain when you hear the electric saw cutting down a tree. These are the feelings beyond mere existence of the sensational egotistical self’s will and demand. When we awaken to what fills the space that surrounds us, we find the expansion into our greater Self, which is our Mother Earth and beyond to the Creator.
Sunlight dances amongst the shadows on the forest floor. The liquid notes of a bird penetrate the forest. A squirrel darts up a tree, while nearby, a deer enjoys the grass. The river gently roars whilst dancing around rocks protruding from the riverbed. Yet, there is a silent strength in the forest. It is the manifestation of the Force of all Life. This is not an idealist’s forest; the balance of life is maintained. Life, abound, all around.

When I today saw the magnificent art work of Allison Ashton, I was compelled to add it to this write. Please support her Galaxy gallery to view her remarkable work of the some unique places of our night sky.
I have requested permission from VirgoSun to insert the magnificent Terra into this writing. It totally depicts what my words are trying to convey.
It took some serious thinking on whether I should place this writing. But, alas, I finally narrowed it down…
Some highlightes were extracted from a 14 page writing I did during 1996 on the link between our Spiritual and Environmental awareness. This part forms part of a greater writing ‘Soul Motion’.
