Forest Voices of India, a 501 C 3 organization, helps charities in India – primarily environmental charities.
What is a voice? A voice is an expression of the spirit.
The voice of the whale calls to other whales. The voice of the forest gives expression to the thoughts of the trees.
The voice of the mountain lion calls to her young.
The voice is an expression of life, of existence, consciousness, awareness. The earth herself has a voice, a presence – as does each rock, each mountain – as do the rains, the wind, and even the heat of the desert at noon.
All is alive and all is a spirit – including the stars overhead, the comets, the moons of the planets that turn round and round.
Nothing has died and all is alive. This is the truth that encompasses the sacred – sacred plants, sacred rivers, the sacred essence of each living species and also the earth and the oceans.
When we imagine that only human beings – or perhaps only human beings and those animals that are somewhat like us – have awareness and a life essence, we have misunderstood the nature of the universe – both the material universe and also the spiritual universe.
In doing so, we have limited and greatly reduced our own life.
In reality, all has life, vitality, and consciousness. All is One. This is one of the core understandings of truth that arose many thousands of years ago on the Indian subcontinent.
