Planting Ourselves Again in the Universe

Uprooted

” We must get back into relation, vivid and nourishing relation to the cosmos and the universe….For the truth is, we are perishing for lack of fulfillment of our greater needs, we are cut off from the great sources of our inward nourishment and renewal, sources which flow eternally in the universe. Vitally, the human race is dying.  It is like a great uprooted tree, with its roots in the air.  We must plant ourselves again in the universe.”

          ~D.H. Lawrence, 1931, in “A propos of Lady Chatterly’s Lover”
