I had a beautiful walk in the woods yesterday and noticed that there are lots of individualistic fungi growing on nearly everything out there!
Fungi live on an extremely fine and articulate neural network called mycelium (a natural version of the Internet) that helps all plants live, eat and communicate with each other. The Fruit that manifests from this organization of awareness and connection, is the Mushroom. I believe I too am just a fruited (hey, watch it) body from a field of awareness and biology.
So, I guess it turns out, I’m a fungi. And so are you.
Some of us feed off of Coniferous trees, Peat, or Business, or Law.
Some of us thrive on Oaks, or Apple trees, or Spirituality, Health, or Technology.
Some of us grow best and feed from straw, or Willows, or Nature, or Kindness or Family.
The beauty of it is that None of us are the same. Thankfully, we each need a different substrate to grow in so that the world will thrive in different shapes and colors.
*** But here’s the IMPORTANT part****
But WHAT we all do – is the same! Fungi can break down the cellulose in wood and create a new living soil where insects and new seeds and birds and plants will thrive. Like them, We ALL take the wood, the stiffness of past Energy, and break it down and re-purpose it. We bring new life to it. We make it useable to a new generation.
Each of YOU breathe new Life into something, for the next generation. You each give old ideas new awareness! You and I take the static and again make it something dynamic!
And the Forests, the Universe, looks back at you and smiles, and says Thank You for your part.
