Frangipani and You Match
by Michael Feeley
“THE GOAL OF LIFE is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with nature.”
Joseph Campbell – professor of literature.
I am like this sweet-smelling Frangipani plant in my front yard. If I match myself with it, I see this:
– It has one stem with many branches, lots of green leaves, and many gorgeous white blossoms flourishing together.
– I am one person with many different thoughts, feelings, choices, and attitudes doing many things in one day and with my life.
– Part and Whole
– Separate and Together
– Diverse and United
– Self and Reality
– One and Many
The Frangipani plant does an incredible job of putting these two opposites together, better than I do. That’s inspiring.
I can learn from a plant by matching my ” nature with nature.” – seeing the relationship and connecting with it.
This is why I love nature. I understand myself and others better.
You can do this with anything in the universe because we are all connected.
Try it. It’s scientific and magical.
