Watch an animal, a flower, a tree,
and see how it rests in Being.
It is itself.
It has enormous dignity, innocence, and holiness.

However, for you to see that, you need to go
beyond the mental habit of naming and labeling.
The moment you look beyond mental labels,
you feel that ineffable dimension of nature
that cannot be understood by thought or perceived
through the senses.

It is a harmony,
a sacredness that permeates not only the
whole of nature but is also within you.
