Everything is beautifully interconnected. As I mused about nature for Thursday Thoughts on GWGT, what I did not show you was the interdependency in this post.
As those little songbirds blissfully fed on the seed of the long departed plants, above in the tree sat another piece of the puzzle of life.
A creature doesn’t live in isolation from other organisms, anymore than a plant exists without soil. It will always be interdependent with other life. All things created are sustained by their environment. All things created nourish our environment.
Like the hawk, people don’t exist separate from this world, we are engaged and embedded in the world just like the rest of nature.
What looks like the menacing Red-tailed Hawk preying on the lowly unsuspecting American Tree Sparrow is only what is supposed to happen in nature. As we prey on nature daily and with such bravado of our existence… it makes me wonder if this was the way nature intended? People are completely dependent on nature. What would happen if we left this planet? We have to take this environment with us, that is what.
What makes us interdependent? What would not live without us or live from us? Are we interdependent when we die nourishing nature around us? We should have been. These questions really haunt me sometimes. On GWGT I raised the premise that nature always has a purpose which she accomplishes. What is the purpose of us?
You tell me what lesson nature has for us to learn?
