Morning Meds; 11 15 21
I exhaled today and in that single breath I gifted a plant with the substance it needs to breath.
Countless plants exchange energy beneath their leaves, drawing in our exhalations.
Their exhalations providing us with the oxygen we need to survive.
Yet mankind continues to cut down our oxygen providers, steadily cutting timber, the ancient trees fall 1, 2, 3……..
Scientists carefully alter their DNA by purging or retaining desired traits,
they replace the fallen with trees that grow like weeds.
They retain traits based upon the needs and upon the satisfaction of the needs of humanity.
They discard the wisdom contained in the ancient Oaks, Hickory, Pines and all their relatives that shade our planet from the sun’s excessive heat.
It is comparable to the destruction of ancient temples,
destroyed by conquering invaders who burned the written wisdom to satisfy their need to dominate.
Trees slain like murdered sages.
The wisdom stored in their ancient seeds secured their survival for millions of years.
Wisdom accumulated through strategic evolution as they struggled against change.
As we draw our next breath, we need to thank the trees for providing us with life.
Without our counterpart, the trees, our inhalations would be empty.
