“Mother Nature is always speaking. She speaks in a language understood within the peaceful mind of the sincere observer.”
~ Radhanath Swami ~ Art by Johanna Wright
The beauty of language lies in the interpretation of it. So how do you translate meaning from a bird’s lilting song or the haunting rustle of leaves in late October?
How do you ‘feel into’ the musty heaviness of freshly-tilled earth or the sweet aromatic scents of a thousand wildflowers waving in the summer breeze?
I know exactly what Radhanath Swami refers to here, and yet the depth of his message diffuses through spoken-word translation.
So I suggest that the only way to fully understand nature’s primordial language is to immerse yourself into it and learn first-hand the Earth’s indigenous roots of Nature-Speak—with ‘indigenous’ here meaning not a group of people, but an originating energy of the Earth.
However it is often the indigenous people of many lands who are the best translators of Earth’s most poignant messaging; likely because they have truly listened to it the longest.
