The Gardening Series

Nature intelligence is nothing like human intelligence. Sometimes we humans, with all our learned layers of complex thinking, can use a reminder that the world is comprised of more than we perceive.

Here is a perspective from nature that offers important clarity on our "little" gardens and our place in the universe.

For our co-creative gardeners out there:
You already know, "it is not enough to move about the planet in a state of benevolent love for it." This message Machaelle shares from nature is an encouraging reminder of why you are taking the time to choose a different path and learn this new way to garden.

For those who still think working with nature is beyond you:
These words just might give you that last piece of the puzzle you need to try a partnership with nature, with one small pot of herbs or flowers, a single potted plant or a simple "gut garden" for your personal goal to help the environment.

“. . . The co-creative garden translates this fundamental Aquarian dynamic into the arena of nature. Human and nature come together in conscious, equal partnership, both functioning from a position of wisdom and change. Wherever such a garden is initiated, it will immediately sound a note outward into the universe and inward into the core of the planet, the very soul of the planet, that the shift from Piscean to Aquarian dynamics within the nature arena is in the process of changing. And immediately, the evolving intent of the garden will be aligned with the prevailing universal flow and the corresponding planetary impulses, one buttressing from above, the other buttressing from below within the planet. The result will be forward motion in tandem—the gardener in tandem with his planet and his universe. With this massive support, it is no wonder the co-creative garden works.

Allow me to give you another insight. The Aquarian impulses are already seated within the planet. Visualize, if you will, the planet as a container of these impulses. Energy held beneath the Earth’s surface. This energy is seated within the very soul of the planet, seated within its heart. It is there to be released and integrated into all levels of life on the planet. Now, picture one small co-creative garden on the planet’s surface. See it as a window into the interior of the planet, into its soul. As the gardener works to align this garden to the new dynamics, watch the window open and the energy contained within the core of the planet gently gravitate to and release through the window. Feel the sense of relief and freedom within the Earth’s core as the energy moves outward and up. And watch the actions and the form living on the Earth’s surface suddenly shift to reflect the impact of the heart energy that has now surfaced. That which exists on the surface has begun to connect to and integrate with the heart and soul of the planet, which, in turn, is fully aligned with the heart and soul force of the universe. As with the experience the human has when he consciously shifts his perceptions in such a way that the heart energy he holds deep within is suddenly released and allowed to surface, so, too, will Earth release its energy as each person opens the window through the framework of the co-creative garden to the heart and soul energy of the planet.

It is not enough to move about the planet in a state of benevolent love for it. . . .”

Your co-creative garden, no matter the size, type or location, is how you can actively participate in "deep planetary change and universal movement."
