When we look deeply at a blade of grass
or at a tree, we can see that it’s not mere
matter. It has its own kind of intelligence.
For example, a seed knows how to grow into
a plant with roots, leaves, flowers, and fruit.
A pine tree is not just matter; it possesses a
sense of knowing. A dust particle is not just
matter; each of its atoms has intelligence
and is a living reality. Like each of the cells
in our body, everything has its innate wisdom.
Mother Earth creates, nourishes, and sustains
life, and has infinite wisdom and intelligence. —Thich Nhat Hanh. @thichnhathanhquotecollective #thay #motherearth #wisdom #mindfulness #thichnhathanh #thichnhathanhquotecollective #buddhistquotes #thichnhathanhquotes
