While walking in a garden or forest can you feel the positive energy in your surroundings? If you can feel their pleasant vibes the plants or trees may be sending you “mystical signals!”

Professor Michael Pollan, an expert in plant neurobiology, explains, “They have analogous structures. They have ways of taking all the sensory data they gather in their everyday lives, integrate it and then behave in an appropriate way in response. And they do this without brains, which in a way, is what's incredible about it, because we automatically assume you need a brain to process information.”

Our dear, compassionate Supreme Master Ching Hai has a loving message to share with us about the divine nature of plants and trees. “Now, trees, they do have their magical power, their healing power, loving power, and they do help you with advice and all that even. But you, the deaf, don’t hear anything, see nothing. Every grass, like a big, maybe a group of grass, every tree, has a spirit of some kind that dwells in it, takes care of the tree, or that is their dwelling place. They are assigned to stay there and that’s their home. And they do bless the surroundings; that’s their job.”

Professor Claire Grierson, a plant biology expert, shares a similar view. She says, “I think plants are massively taken for granted. I think they are extremely sophisticated organisms. They are adapting exquisitely well to the changes around them all the time. I think we can learn a lot from plants philosophically.”

Let’s conclude part one of this series with a fascinating revelation about plants from Supreme Master Ching Hai. “Of course, the Tree of Life symbolizes life, and the deity wants to remind us that we do not destroy life, because if we destroy other life, then we destroy our own life also. If we destroy trees, which give us oxygen and shade, and hold the soil together so that it will not be washed away, and so many things that the tree can do, and if we keep cutting them, just to raise the animal-people, then we kill the animal-people as well, then our lives will be at stake also.”
