We need a renaissance of wonder.  We need to renew, in our hearts and in our souls, the deathless dream, the eternal poetry, the perennial sense that life is miracle and magic.
E. Merrill Root

God, despite his casual silence, still exists.  Of that I haven’t a single doubt.
Don Williams, Jr.

Time-honored, beautiful, solemn and wise.
Noble, sacred and ancient
Trees reach the highest heavens and penetrate the deepest secrets of the earth.
Trees are the largest living beings on this planet.
Trees are in communion with the spiritual and the material.
Trees guard the forests and the sanctified places that must not be spoiled.
Trees watch over us and provide us with what we need to live on this planet.
Trees provide a focal point for meditation, enlightenment, guidance and inspiration.
Trees have a soul and a spirit.

Tree Magick by Lavenderwater




It had become clear to me, in a flash of illumination, that for me the only possible goal was psychiatry.  Here alone the two currents of my interest could flow together and in a united stream dig their own bed.  Here was the empirical field common to biological and spiritual facts, which I had everywhere sought and nowhere found.  Here at last was the place where the collision of nature and spirit became a reality.
