silencing the stream

“Fear closes the door to the magical life. It silences the streams and it stops the wind. Because of fear, we see animals and plants as things separate from us. Our fears makes us see the only life as human life. Nature is no longer an enchanted world….nature has become separated from the sacred. And our ability to feel compassion for all things upon the earth has diminished.” _Ted Andrews
