Let's toast Every rung we've climbed on Evolution's Ladder. Whisper, "I love you! I love you!" To the whole mad world. - Hafiz
The image below is of the iconic pohutukawa flower in New Zealand. In Maori lore, this tree is a companion of birth and death. The placenta of the newborn was buried at its base so that it might become part of the world tree. When the child visits they will gain strength and grounding and when death comes the departed soul will go to the great pohutukawa in the far north. Here the soul slides down the roots of the tree after death to continue its onward spirit journey. In modern lore, it is the national Christmas tree as it flowers in the month of December. They are spectacular along the coastlines and they provide much-needed shade in the summer. Those who sit still and listen are also provided with much wisdom and support. I chose this particular image above as it seems to indicate where we are in our world. The flowering blooms represent the Evolutionary Ladder that Hafiz speaks of, and the buds waiting to bloom speak to our world walking toward its unfolding beauty and justice.
May you toast your own evolutionary soul journey this year and whisper, "I love you! I love you!" to yourself and to the whole mad world.
