Evolution and Devolution

By the way, I think it’s important that we realize that Consciousness is Universal.  The notion that it makes Hufolk special, or even different, is purely an Ego trip, and unfortunately for the Planet, a very widespread one among the Hufolk.  All Matter is infused with Spirit, and if you’ve never had a chat with a Rock, you should consider yourself badly in need of remedial education – as we all are, myself included.  Rocks have been around a long time and have a lot of Wisdom to share – though of course, All There Is Is Now.

I recommend any of these Stephen Harrod Buhner books…

  • Plant Intelligence and the Imaginal Realm: Beyond the Doors of Perception into the Dreaming of Earth
  • Secret Teachings Of Plants: The Intelligence of the Heart in the Direct Perception of Nature
  • The Lost Language of Plants: The Ecological Importance of Plant Medicines for Life on Earth

They’re all powerful tutorials.  The Amazon description of the last-named volume includes…

“How plants communicate their healing qualities to humans and other animals. Western culture has obliterated most people’s capacity to perceive these messages, but this book also contains valuable information on how we can restore our faculties of perception.”

The point is that the Pentacles of Evolution/Ascension (Matter Ascending to Spirit) and Devolution (Spirit Descending into Matter) are Conceptualizations – properties of the Observer, not of the Observed.  Like all Dualities, it lives in the Mind, not in the World.  If we confuse the map with the territory, we’ll end up with muddy footprints all over our map.  Matter and Spirit, like you and I, are very fuzzy of boundary, in constant flux – up, down, across, underneath, within, throughout – and All One.
