I walk in the forest often and feel the communion of all that exists there
every time. I have given names to the rocks; hear the trees whisper,
breathe and sing; feel the tender-loving-care of the earth under my feet.
Of course everything that exists has consciousness. It's consciousness
that precedes existence!
No need to prove anything to anyone at all. This is an experiential
knowing. Science wants data to believe what the heart already knows.
