The Root of the Universe


The subtle essence if the universe is active.
It is like an unfailing fountain of life
which flows forever in a vast and profound valley.
It is called the Primal Female and the Subtle Origin.
The Gate of the Subtle Origin
becomes the root of the universe.
It subtly and gently generates
without exhausting itself.

  1. Loved this Eddie… as I did the ones about the trees being teachers.. We need only look into Natures heart to find our answers .. Love and Blessings Eddie this Easter weekend

    • Digging in your garden, working the soil, you must have felt something flowing from the Earth into you.
      Eating food that you see grow there brings you closer and closer to Nature. Drawing butterflies and writing
      about them; you are deep in Mother’s grasp. thank you for your kindness
      with love and light, Eddie

  2. the light and the plants go so well, it is like a hidden little door to the universe in the photograph. Very simple and well done, and the words complement it nicely.
