Every creature has its own language to enter into heaven. See the flowers, they pray with colors — and so praise the May sky with delicate scents.
And hear the birds and the bees, and see the shimmering lizard, and how the mosquitoes dance around the evening rays. All of this is beautiful, and what is beautiful is also prayer, so heaven finds it.
Everything — star, man, animal — is part of God’s word. And each is sown, grows, and perishes at its appointed hour; all this is part of their nature from the beginning. Thus, if we listen to them in their depths, then we hear the eternal word of God, spoken through Nature.
We cannot take anything away from, or add anything to, God-Nature. Even our erring delusions are necessary and have their time. From within, out of ourselves, the higher life has to develop.
Everything has its laws — and both to work and to suffer are the powers implanted in us by God, and He is Nature itself. God needs us to be one with His will, according to His will, for His will.
