In the story of creation from the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path, the Plant World was the second to be created on what we know as Grandmother Earth.
The plants are the givers of energy. What it means for the plants to be givers is that their gift, their essence of “being” as a plant is to give. They give nourishment, shelter, beauty, inspiration and most importantly through the photosynthesis, the oxygen we breathe … our breath of life.
Plants teach unconditional giving. You don’t find a plant trying to decide who it will give air to today according to its likes or dislikes. It simply gives.
