Natural Nativity 9/27/09

We are the sunshine and the starlight, we are the green of the grass, the red of the rose, we are the music of the cello and the song of the birds, we are the outcome of creation, at one with the earth, the sea and the sky.

Sometimes I wonder, because I'm a curious person, as you are, what odd equation got formed in the human thinking process that resulted in the theory of alienation. What is it that makes us believe that somehow we are separate creatures, not only from each other but also from creation itself?

Two days ago I wrote that there is probably nothing in the universe more complex than the human being. Then why do we limit ourselves with labels and rules? And why do we draw circles around ourselves as if somehow the universe would be contained in them?

Alright, there are things and people we don't like and don't want to be around, but that's a personal matter and it doesn't mean we can deny them their existence. As we Earthians become less earth bound we are learning that we are citizens of the universe. The circle is getting larger every minute and there is so much more to understand.

We have telescopes that are peering into deep space showing us things that are and that were. One day there will be Hubblelike microphones that will record and transmit the sounds of space, the music of space, and, as a result, we will learn how to hear the music of the grass and the mountains. Some of the astronauts have remarked about the unusual, metallic like aroma of space.

Everything in creation has it's own language, it's own song, and we can still hear only a sliver of it. But when we learn to listen, watch, smell and taste beyond what we imagine our senses are and learn the aromas, sights and sounds of the universe, when we open wide our thoughts to embrace the ever expanding nature of things and when we hear the voice that explains it all, we must, of necessity, be reborn into life.

We are no more or less than stardust
and require time to gather strength to shine.

A beautiful entry, D. I love the quote you began with.

How about a category clue for the puzzle?

Wonderful entry - I saw a shooting star last night and could only imagine the song that it sang.
