Mag 120 6/3/12 Keep an Open Mind

                                                              image by Klaus Enrique Gerdes
            
                                                  She had first read about them in Findhorn
                                                Foundation books.This was a community,
                                                established in Scotland near the town
                                                of the same name. It's founders Peter and
                                                Eileen Caddy had built the center on dubious,
                                               difficult land. Truly it was and is a fascinating story.
                                                   Not to mock or belittle the wonderful beings
                                               supporting growing and living things from behind
                                               the scenes of our natural world .She felt the above
                                                image might be a commemoration of respect and
                                                honor to one of the many nature Deva's.
                                                   Some people are skeptical - belief in entities
                                               specific to plants and elements of the natural world
                                               was foreign to many. When she came across a
                                               reference to these beings in an ancient
                                               spiritual text; she laid arguments aside. Now people
                                               could scoff, but she was settled better in her own heart.

Your imagination is so full and lovely in this. It was like reading from an older encyclopedia, when the texts often sounded like prose with a flourish.
