Honor All Levels Of Depth
Do so without exceptions; as all material things, life, and mind are manifestations of Spirit. At the same time, be able to make distinctions in fundamental, built-in, intrinsic worth based on the gradations of depth––levels of spiritual maturity. Spirit pervades all cosmic persuasions: matter, life, mind, and Soul. Humans are comprised of Spirit, matter, life, mind, and Soul. They also can achieve high levels of spiritual maturity, becoming if they wish and work on it, secular saints, driven easily to fight injustice for the sake of all sentient beings. Also, being self aware, they allow the Universe to achieve its own recognition. Everything is to be honored but humans hold a special place. They are, for all of these reasons, the most significant performers of the symphony of the universe.
If this is not a day when you prefer to spend time in nature without an agenda, do the following activity:
Honoring All Levels of Depth
HumaNatureConnect Activity: Honoring All Levels of Depth. With pen and journal in hand, go to an attractive natural area and, in a spirit of appreciation, look around you to find something that is attractive to you. Once you find an aspect of nature that is attractive to you continuously for at least ten seconds, use the optimal functioning you receive along with your continued attraction (which can be thought of as your consent to do this activity with the help of the attractive natural being) to honor the whole Chain of Being, from the simplest beings to the most complex beings. In this activity, we will be honoring for the sake of others and not just for the sake of you as a course participant. In order for this honoring to be felt beyond yourself and beyond other humans, it will be helpful to find sensitivities that other beings have that correspond with senses or sensitivities that you as a human being also have or can develop. Using Dr. Cohen’s System of Natural Senses, we will provide you with a complete list of sensitivities that exist as the various strands throughout the natural web of life. It will be up to you to determine, through observation and imagination, what beings with a particular sensitivity you wish to honor, and how you wish to honor these fellow beings. Use the following set of questions as your guide:
After you answer each of the questions below determine how you could you use your natural senses to honor the beings you identify? If you actually do honor one or more beings, write down your impressions in your journal.
What being do you see or know of that . . .
