The Artist’s Garden at Giverny by Claude Monet
Plants have scientifically been shown to draw alternative sources of energy from other plants. Plants influence each other in many ways and they communicate through “nanomechanical oscillations” vibrations on the tiniest atomic or molecular scale or as close as you can get to telepathic communication (From the article, How Plants Help Each Other Grow By Near-Telepathic Communication, Michael Forrester.
Science is beginning to recognize the conjunctive, interactive, and participative nature of the universe. This is no surprise to we who have long held an animaterial point of view. The above article describes experiments which are simply more tangible evidence to the fact that Nature is connected down to the tiniest atomic particle. As I’ve said before, the phrase, “inanimate object,” is an oxymoron. All things are animated, or are permeated with Soul.
This same Soul is the best hope mankind possesses. The sooner we accept our reality and our destiny, the sooner our world will improve. As with all things in the universe (The Hermetic maxim, As above, so below), we can apply the truths we are learning about plants to humankind. Read the article above and think of how these interactions should be functioning among all of us.
This process of coming into a deeper relationship with life is a process of coming into relationship with the ‘deep truth’. It is inter-relationship that is both with ourselves and with the world around us. It is a discovery, an immanent turn, available to those who have searched and found their ‘individuality’. It is a shift of focus from individuation to interrelation: from me to we. And thus immanence is love, but not libidinal love as desire. Instead, it is divine love, love for life, and love for being (Jung, The Deep Truth, by Dr. Jennifer Lilla).
May we seek the deep truth.
