Nature Kingdom Requests our Help – SOS
Pan, Lord of the Wilderness visited me with a message for humankind. This occurred while writing my first book, The Golden Ones, which became When We Were Gods. He told me that the Nature Kingdom requests our help. However, the type of help he requested surprised me.
He also said that the Nature Kingdom could clean the earth for us, but had become discouraged because of our abuse, neglect, and disrespect. Nonetheless, if we gave the kind of help he requested, the Nature Kingdom could do amazing things for us and the earth.
You might be wondering: If the Nature Kingdom requests our help, what can we do? Plant trees? Clean pollution? Well, to my surprise, Pan said:
“Natural forces want to work with us but have been disappointed so many times. If nothing else, grow something just to see how difficult it is to grow, because then you can honor it even more. Fail. It doesn’t matter. Just try.”
Page 92, When We Were Gods
What? Did I see, “Fail?” And, that it doesn’t matter as long as we simply try? Nonetheless, those are the words I heard. In addition, Pan also said:
“More people should garden. As much as possible, grow things. As much as possible, show an attempt to work with nature. . . .”
You never know what’s going to happen when, as much as possible, you show an attempt to work with nature. In the photo on the left, giant sunflowers grew in my garden. A local newspaper photographer took the photo using my camera. He used the photo he took with his camera to illustrate an article in the Daily Press about my garden.
Interestingly, I did not plant these seeds. I don’t know where they came from! They just turned up in my garden – volunteers, as they’re sometimes called. Fortunately, I recognized them as sunflower seedlings and didn’t weed them out. In addition, I hadn’t planted sunflower seeds in this garden, so they weren’t seeds that germinated from previous sunflowers I had grown.
However, I had planted sunflower seeds in another garden (photo on right), years before, which I photographed and included in When We Were Gods. These had grown into the first giants in my garden.
I believe the important word from the quote above is: “attempt.” As I understand it, the Nature Kingdom feels encouraged to clean the earth if we, at least, try to work with it. I assume this means that when we attempt to work with nature, we create more good than when we ignore the Nature Kingdom. Furthermore, I suspect that plants enjoy it when we fuss over them.
In addition, I believe the Nature Kingdom thrives when we appreciate it. As Pan said, in the first quote above, “grow something just to see how difficult it is to grow, because then you can honor it even more.” Therefore, by attempting to work with the Nature Kingdom, we can’t help but appreciate the strength, beauty, and dogged determination to survive of plants.
Lately, I no longer grow large vegetable gardens as I used to. I no longer freeze and can prodigious amounts of vegetables. However, I still continue a relationship with the Nature Kingdom. For example, I fuss over daffodils and day lilies. I also grow indoor houseplants, such as Christmas cactus, aloe vera, and spider plants. Sometimes, I fail with them, but I keep trying.
What are your experiences with the Nature Kingdom? Do you keep a vegetable or flower garden? Do you fuss over houseplants? Have you had an encounter with Pan? Please share below in the comments section. Thanks.
If you’re interested in learning more about my encounter with Pan, you’ll find a description of my experience (I felt terrified at first) and Pan’s message in When We Were Gods. It’s in the chapter entitled, “Message from Pan.”
