Dear Dallas:
Thanks for putting it that way and causing a flash for me.  I'd been
subsconsiously trying to put together some concepts on the power within
nature and couldn't get past the obvious physical things like cut down
too many trees - starve of oxygen, make extinct too many animals -
destroy the balance and possibly get over-run by killer bees, and why,
with all this negativity from human-kind doesn't nature just wither away
or go chaotic?
In your words I saw the tremendous power of love and tenacity of nature
to keep us alive, unconditionally.
Either that or some big hand keeps putting it back in balance as fast as
we screw it up :)

Spread it, spread it.  Tempus fugit.

Are you put off by the label, maybe?
Remember too that, except for (what you guys call the) Masters, often
our reaction is to the mirror of ourselves.
Kym put it nicely in her post.
