“The universe is your teacher, the forests are your teachers. You will know when you fail to learn, for failure is punished with boredom. If you develop even the least flicker of sensitivity, the universe will come alive within you.”
from The Universe is a Green Dragon: A Cosmic Creation Story
by Brian Swimme
This is one of my favorite books of all time, written in 1984 by this physicist and describing a new cosmology for us to ponder. We must remember to keep learning, and, I would add, to be grateful for the lessons, for, as the author says, ‘failure [to learn] is punished with boredom.’ Keep looking for the lessons, with gratitude!
