To fully experience the depth of our humanity we need to be informed and inspired by all the elements of the world around us.
Life without bird song is a sensory deprivation that diminishes our capacity for joy and connectedness with ourselves, others and the rest of nature.
So open your senses to the birds in your environment today. Listen and observe – Where do they live? What are their songs? What is your relationship with the birds?
Do this for a few moments in your day and you’ll begin to feel a greater sense of connectedness to the world and yourself.
