The Cave: The Emergence of Humanity

Grotto_AToday’s stop on the Meditation walk brings you to The Grotto.

“This grotto/cave represents primitive, human habitation.  It is really the Earth that cares for us; gives us a home from which we can reflect upon and enjoy life’s riches, and create anew from those riches.  Let yourself dream of being the ‘understanding heart of the universe.’

We are the newcomers here.  On the clock of the universe, we arrived on the scene only seconds before midnight.  But look at what we have done in our short history.  Our search for the securities of habitat has let us distance ourselves from nature, caused us to exploit and destroy.  And yet, at some level, we know that we are part of nature, that we are nature reflecting on itself.  We need to rediscover our true home.”
