The Holistic Ego: Right Forestry for my Family Tree of Life
A report from a course participant
I had gone to this area in a bit of a mood. I was irritated, grumpy and not even sure I could make a connection here yet, too, only knowing that nature would help. I had felt a little rejected and ignored by someone earlier. I' d felt I wasn't being treated "fairly".
I saw and was attracted to a giant fallen tree/log. I parked and gained consent to enter the park. I was immediately attracted to a tree grouping only to be startled by a squirrel as I approached. I said "squirrel connection" in my mind and he stopped and turned (while climbing up a tree) stared and chattered at me. I did not feel unwelcome, tho'.
I used the "connection" constantly and quieted the mind chatter. Tree connection, leaf connection, grass connection - I found it very effective and I enjoyed this activity tremendously. I put the "connection" behind everything. It was fun, and I felt the connection. Butterfly, various birds, the sun and wind too.
I was attracted to the fallen tree who brought me there to begin with. When I said "log connection" and asked permission to touch the log - I knew it wasn't dead. I felt a strong sense of presence there, reinforcing that we are all connected. That life (God/Nature/Love/Energy) flows through everything. There really is no "death" as we've been taught/wrangled to believe in our new-brain stories. It was a wonderfully supporting and affirming experience for me. It supported my spiritual beliefs: That there is only One of us, and, That all there is is Love.
This area was delightful as I made one connection after another. I was attracted to a large oak a ways off. In fact, I had felt a pull there for a time, as I moved around, heading that direction and still responding to attractions as I went.
When I reached the Oak I felt she said "hello" to me. I knew an immediate connection - love. I called her Grandmother Tree and silently hugged her and felt wrapped in warmth. I mentally told her how beautiful she was to me. Her majestic branches, twisting a myriad of ways, spidering across the blue/white sky. Breathtaking. Then, she told me that I was the same: strong, beautiful, graceful, wise - all the things I'd thought of her - and I said "no" - how can that be? She said it was so, we were both nature's flow, identical, connected, and someday I'd recognize it. That it was my ego that got in the way of my understanding who I really am. "Get rid of the ego and those attributes would blossom naturally for me," she said. I was quite taken with this.
I had been stressed and irritated. That is why Grandmother Tree gently reminded me of the ego - and what havoc it can wreak! She calmed me (as had Fallen Log and other attractions). She also centered me and humbled me, too. And all without pain! Indeed, with such love as to make it easy to see my "faults" and know I needed to keep her flowing into my thinking to help me correct them.
When I left her to walk back to my car, I saw a bluejay fly overhead and heard myself say "bluejay friend"
instead of "connection." It was an unforced change. I broke out into a huge smile and suddenly was flooded with "connections" that changed to "friends." I walked away filled with appreciation and respect.

"Human behavior is rooted most deeply in nature's intentions and desire. The rhythms of nature underlie all of human interaction: religious traditions, economic systems, cultural and political organization. When these human forms betray the natural psychic pulse, people and societies get sick, nature is exploited and entire species are threatened."
In industrial society our excessively nature-separated lives mold us to betray the natural psychic pulse. We learn to block from our thinking over 95 percent of the wise sensory callings and fulfillments we normally receive from natural systems and their eons. Our hurt and frustration from the severed disconnection of these senses underlies our greatest troubles.
