|“Even the trees have spirits – everything has a spirit.”|
|–Mary Hayes, CLAYOQUOT|
|The trees are great teachers. The trees are great listeners. That is why we should meditate in their presence. The Great spirit is in every rock, every animal, every human being, and in every tree. The Great Spirit has been in some trees for hundreds of years. Therefore, the trees have witnessed and heard much. The trees are the Elders of the Elders. Their spirits are strong and very healing.|
Great Spirit, teach me respect for all spiritual things.
