Peace, calm, and tranquility

from Friday June 22

A teacher of botanical medicine once expoused the ways and the manners of a person dedicated to plants. She said that the human should approach the plant with respect, ask for permission to harvest, water, prune, etc., and ask for forgiveness if the human hurt the plant. Humans abuse plants, she said, when they harvest or prune quickly or disrespect the plant in anyway. Conversely, a human and a plant generate a positive relationship when they base their relationship on reciprocity.

This enters my mind today because our farms plants require no human work today. It is a wonderful summer day, that if the plants required something we could easily complete such tasks. Yet, we have completed consistant heartfelt work and the plants grow, seed and die indepedently.
