"We are here to love and to give. In fact, the very nature works that way. What we see in nature is that there is only giving, no asking. Take an apple tree. Does it demand that you should pour water on it? Does it demand that you fertilize it? No. It works hard. It draws moisture and nutrients from the soil, and it grows. Ultimately, the tree brings forth thousands of apples. Don’t you think that it’s reasonable for the tree to claim all its fruits for itself, because it works so hard? But have you ever seen an apple tree tasting its own fruits? No. It’s here that you see Nature’s law at work. The human species claims to be the highest of the species. However, it should learn a lesson from the apple tree."
"The Mother Earth - she is pure unconditional love and abundance in a magical web of living diversity and aliveness" Billa
I think I could turn and live with animals,
they're so placid and self-contained,
I stand and look at them long and long.
They do not sweat and whine about their condition,
They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins,
They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God,
Not one is dissatisfied,
not one is demented with the mania of owning things,
Not one kneels to another,
nor to his kind that lived thousands of years ago,
Not one is respectable or unhappy over the whole earth.
("Song of Myself", Walt Whitman, 1819-1892)
