CONNECTING WITH NATURE
Earth and Humanity – What Unites Us?
Karsten Massei - Trans. by M. Barton
31 October 2022;
21.5 x 13.5 cm;
Earth and humanity are involved in a fragile interplay of physical and spiritual relationships, the full spectrum of which can only be discerned by higher, finer senses. Based on actual, living discernment rather than dogmatic ideas, Karsten Massei reveals how we can unite with nature, supporting our inner development and everyday lives. We ourselves comprise the path leading to the mysteries of the earth. Through delving into nature’s secrets, paradoxically we are brought back to our own being – our soul-gold, our luminosity, but also to our shadow, lower nature. Deep encounters with the earth are thus self-encounters.
In a series of concise and accessible chapters, Massei illumines human characteristics – our senses, the quality of our listening, our soul wounds and the possibility for transformation. Likewise, he lights up the natural world – plants and animals, but also elemental beings, spirits of trees, and the great being of the earth, Christ. Amongst a wealth of interrelated themes, the author portrays death as the doorway to a new existence, describing the relationship of the dead with the earth and humanity and speaking movingly of the healing social deed of forgiveness. Founded on first-hand research, this book is full of reverence for the hidden aspects of life and their significance for personal growth.
