When we show-up to be present to the life around and within us we are both blessees and blessers. The reciprocity of entering a dialogue with the natural world after we cleared land to build a new home made room for the plants that had been here to seed themselves once more. I now have baby trees coming up all over the property. I invited them back to heal the earth from my intrusion; to reclaim the open spaces with lush green life. Being faithfully and lovingly present even in interspecies relationships can amaze one with the miracle of new life.
