By Audrey Hope

Nature is the great psychic.
Life is the wise guru.
Reality is the highest spirituality.
Earth is the divine textbook.

Always, since the beginning,
We used the sun, sky, wind and stars
To figure out the world.
These are, and still — God’s finest teachers.

What time to plant? They ask the sun.
Where is the land? He asks the birds.
Whom to marry? She asks the pond.

Living in a sacred wonderland, a playground
of rock people, water spirits, and tree fairies —
divine guides of earth school
to remember us to fall in love…with ourselves.

Time to be again,
The alchemist and wrest basic truth with air,
To study geomancy — harmony with earth,
To learn scrying, gazing into pools,
Or be an astrologer, and look up to heaven.

Get intimate with clouds.
Have a relationship with rain.
Talk to animals.

Sit in God’s paradise and notice the show.
The sacred signs, messages
For us, dear children of the earth,
To help listen to this holy land.
