“Just as an apple tree produces apples, because apples are part of the apple tree, earth produces human beings. No earth, no human beings.” Adyashanti in The Most Important Thing
Imagine the apples of an apple tree destroying the tree on which they hang. No tree, no apples. Sounds ridiculous, right? That’s exactly what humans are doing. Destroy the Earth, and eventually, destroy humanity. We are the Earth, just as apples are the apple tree, and the Earth too. When will we wake up and see clearly that everything is not just connected but One Big Whole.
It doesn’t have to look big. Just do what you can to protect the Earth. You’re really only helping yourself.
“When we are contemplating the universe, we are the universe contemplating itself, and that may be the most wondrous and extraordinarily profound aspect of our whole life.” Adyashanti in The Most Important Thing
When there are events like the Super Blood Moon Total Lunar Eclipse, the most extraordinary aspect of it is the way it can orient us back to the mystery of life, the awe and wonder of it all. It brings us back to question, What’s really going on here?
If you view the moon tonight, let the mystery of it all lead you into knowing that you really don’t know anything about the workings of the universe. No one does. And that’s perfectly okay. There is so much more going on than the mind could even comprehend. Just let it be what it is: amazing.
