let this message fall on your ears
like soft little petals tickling you
dancing in the sun and wind
twinkling in the light, fierce clusters of power and bitterness and pleasure
let this message of ease and love and support
tickle the insides of your brain
let these sunlit kisses
open your eyes and head and heart
strong herbal odor that beckons and demands:
there is deep magic in the life all around you
each of us plants contains abundant mystery
tight and loaded up inside of our buds
waiting to burst forth.
and then look deeper
and then look deeper again.
that’s right, into the very heart of you. the very heart of your stuff, your spirit magic core.
with power, we, too live in this place.
the world is alive
the world and all of the spirits of every plant and rock of the world are all talking to each other
creating a current, a web
weaving, holding this together.
press your crown to us
yes we are here to help but also here to let the magic burst forth
what is deep inside of you is also deep inside of us
you call things mundane but there is nothing mundane about the world
even the flowers that grow by the side of the road are filled with infinities
and if you listened fully to all of their wisdom you would have no more questions about the world, you would understand everything.
our power and spirits are deep
we exist alongside of and among you as equals to you in spirit
rejoice! this world is not as boring as you think it is. if you feel trapped in the routine —
we have so much to say
like a parent you’re annoyed with but then you realize the depth of their wisdom and experience
you may roll your eyes when we tell you that magic
— as in the depths, as in the great mystery, The Thing You Desire Most and You Cannot Speak, What you Want to Know—
is right here. at your fingertips. whispering. present. waiting for you. not longing for you, but waiting. patiently. listen now. shut up and listen ❤️
