I remember watching a documentary about Kiko the gorilla who had learned sign language and was able to communicate about profound matters concerning the human race.
She apologized for saying that on the one hand she loved humans but basically felt that they were insane because of the way that humanity is destroying the planet.
I found this fascinating on many levels. That this gorilla had always had the capacity to communicate, but had taken steps or been encouraged to learn a completely different language and had the ability to convey a deeply profound mess
I pondered this message that nature could see us and considered some of my own life experience with animals, that they do have senses that humans do not process directly because of our mechanistic way of life in cities compromising our latent abilities to do such things as feel a storm coming long before it can be seen and felt physically.
I considered a book I had read about an allopathic doctor who had a vacation in Australia and was taken in to the desert with the ancient aboriginal elders who called modern humans
mutants, because we were in a trance, sleep walking and completely out of touch with the rhythms of nature.
The aboriginals taught the Doctor about the ancient healing arts and had called her through the dream time and had come to meet her, knowing where she would be without conventional methods of communication.
Are modern humans who are predominantly operating with the left brain not open to the possibility that animals and plants can communicate with us telepathically?.
I pondered the ancient practitioners of Taoism and Qi Gong, slow movements in alignment with nature. The ancients were perhaps not only observing animals and mimicking their movements, but being taught by them in other more profound ways.
Often I go on walks and a Heron will show up at the spot where I have stopped and in its own way I sometimes feel is communicating on many levels that perhaps before I have not been open to.
