Snowflakes swirling and falling to the ground to accumulate as a white blanket over all my immediate outside surroundings. It is full of illusion. From one look it seems to come down slanted, but from another it appears to be coming down directly. Each individual flake falls at will. It swirls dizzily, taking part with nature and yet seemingly at the same time doing as it chooses.  All is well, as each reaches its destination.

We perceive it as quiet within the world of snowflakes. But if you are ever more quiet, you can listen to the vibration, as they come together to serve their purpose.

I feel at oneness with nature’s swirling crystals. The peaceful falling is gentleness on my soul. The vibration of the falling snowflakes mirror the vibration of my soul. There is light without and within. It is all light.

There is acceptance on each snowflake’s part that while each one is individually designed, they are in communion with their mission. Today they fall with delighted, carefree fluffy lightness, as though today their mission is filled with joy. As I look outside my window, the backdrop that is the world plays host to their dance and for today gives them the stage.

So it is that as a global community we are to work toward oneness while honoring all. This mission does not mean we dismiss the uniqueness of each human being any more than the forest dismisses the trees, nor one snowflake dismisses another. Each tree and each snowflake makes room for the other, knowing that together they will accomplish the shelter of a forest or the protective, blanketing of the earth with freshly laid crystals.

What the trees and snowflakes know is that they have learned to love unconditionally. Their joy is to share their energy for the good of all. So it is with human beings. We are of nature. It is not that we go out and walk with nature, but we walk of nature as we are one with nature’s mission of nurturing, communicating, and networking. When we recognize that we are of one with nature, it is the true understanding of unconditional love. “As it is above, so it is below.” Loving unconditionally does not mean that we forsake individualism, no more than one snowflake or leaf forsakes its individualism.  It is as the trees grow a forest and the snowflakes blanket the earth, unconditional love spreads and grows a community.
