"And this our
life, exempt from public haunt,
Finds tongues in trees, books in the running
Sermons in stones, and good in everything." ~ Shakespeare, from: 'As
You Like It'
Spring is usually a
long time coming here in the mountains. This is a good time to
reflect on the good in everything. Lingering winter
is like the calm before the storm of high energy unleashed with
ranching activity, construction starts, and the tourism industry
which accesses the North Gate of Yellowstone Park through
We had a brief blizzard blow through here a few days ago. Mountain
snow pack for the Yellowstone watershed looks good. With warming
temps, the river rises, irrigation work begins, and ranchers move
cattle to greener pastures. You know spring is here when a trip to
town gets delayed by a herd of cattle going down the same road.
The mountain bluebirds arrive here in Paradise with warm southwest
Chinook winds. They brave Spring snowstorms to fly North and build
their nests around my home, a passive solar straw-bale house by the
Yellowstone River. Written on the utility room wall is the dates
when the bluebird fledglings took wing over the years. I've learned
to whistle their sweet chirping, and 'talk' to them as they flutter
around the gardens.
In one short summer,
the fledglings grow to fly south in the Fall, returning early in the
Spring, braving the frequent snow squalls, to have their own

Before clocks began
mechanizing time, common sense was tuned to nature's schedule,
living in harmony with natural cycles of natural living with natural
foods, etc. This was naturally practiced by native cultures in
America for thousands of years.
Teepee rings of stone circles are found all around Paradise Valley.
Indian families apparently staked out their mobile teepees this way,
returning to the same circles for hunting grounds and wintering
When settlers came to Montana, they found Paradise Valley populated
by large herds of elk, deer and bison. Buffalo jumps, where Indians
herded them over cliffs, rim the valley. This was good hunting, and
giant springs still provide open water, thick with trout, even when
the river freezes over.
As printed in one of the first Rand McNally U.S. map books, there is
an old Indian legend that two tribes met for war here in the valley,
but the Great Spirit spoke to them in no uncertain terms that there
would be no war here. So among the Indians, and later settlers,
this area became known as Paradise Valley.
The Indians understood Nature intuitively. The Great Spirit spoke to
them in ways that their shaman were especially known for. It is
natural that indigenous cultures worldwide knew this Great Spirit.
But unnatural man in industrialized nations become disconnected from
Nature. In their arrogance they call native cultures
'primitive'. The moral compass of modern civilization has lost its

folk worldwide have an instinctive love of Nature that reflects the
love for the 'Creator' in Nature's Creation. That's why Yellowstone
Park is the most visited nature preserve in the world. There are
almost as many foreign visitors as Americans. It's not just the
spectacular geysers and the giant Lake Yellowstone at 8,000 feet in
the mouth of a super-volcano.
Just about every year, national newspapers carry the story of some
city-slicker in the Big Park who gets gored by a bison or falls a
few thousand feet into Yellowstone Canyon because they are clueless
about Nature. I've heard stories of kids who grew up among
skyscrapers and went into shock when visiting, curling up in a fetal
position when traveling through the vast scale of geological drama
in Yellowstone Park.

of unnatural living tunes out Nature until 'unreality' becomes
normal. This is the dis-ease of Western civilization - the
disconnect from Nature's law and 'language' as speaks to the soul...
out of the 'boxes' we live in.
Indians lived in circular 'pyra-mids'. Their teepees were a circle,
with a "fire" (pyra) in the "middle" (mid). Tribes would group
their teepees in a circle, with a fire in the middle... like the
planets of our solar system around the sun. Natural man lives like
that, creating a space that shapes 'spherical consciousness' around
the fiery spirit that matters... centered and connected with the
seasons and cycles like natural clockwork.

the book titled Spontaneous Evolution
by Bruce Lipton and Steve Bhaerman,
Dr. Bruce Lipton says that are we are on the path of the
greatest evolutionary event ever seen on this planet
(emphasis added below):
evolution that is in front of us right now is the
evolution of humanity - not the evolution of the
human... It's the evolution of a super organism called
humanity. Humanity: that's where 7 billion individuals
come together and live as one body...
world as we know it is ending. And, this is a good sign
because if it doesn't end we're going to go extinct...
We are in a stage of creating a new world, based upon
new beliefs... You are the
cultural creatives who are thinking your way into a
new, more sustainable, more viable future... "So,
keep up your work... And do not lose your faith and
your hope, because
we are on the path of the greatest evolutionary event
ever seen on this planet: the convergence of all
humans into one living system to share the garden that
God gave us." ~ More at:
