To explore how Nature’s creations can help us to live in greater harmony with the Natural World, Keith interweaves biological science, natural philosophy, and spirituality with song, poetry, and nature videography.
Many embrace perspectives and belief systems that are in discord with Nature’s rhythms. This disturbs the well-being of both individuals and our collective. Visitations by Nature’s animals in our waking lives, meditations, visions, and dreams are often invitations to resolve our discord with Nature. We can accept these invitations by developing an experiential rapport with physical manifestations of our animal visitors.
When surrendering to this rapport, Life is revealed as a radiant Net of Gems, a Net of Gems held together by relationship. As we find our own place within this relationship, the Net of Gems becomes one Gem. And that one Gem is Love. Unconditional, transpersonal Love. The one great Love of Existence.
