"Every tree, every plant, has a spirit.
People may say that the plant has no mind.
I tell them that the plant is alive & conscious.
A plant may not talk, but there is a spirit
in it that is conscious, that sees everything,
which is the soul of the plant, its essence,
what makes it alive. The channels through
which the water & sap move
are the veins of the spirit."
