Practice inter-species zen. Be present and fully in the moment while log-meditating among all fellow species. Being fully present has its advantages, especially when a hawk flying overhead decides your log is the lunch buffet, and you are the featured entree.
Could you imagine humanity being as kind and zen-like as these fellow animals? Me neither. Perhaps a source of our problem is a failure of imagination? Let’s imagine the world we want to live in, and then live it. It begins with each of us. That is what the turtles, herons, and ducks suggest we do to make our own log a peaceable kingdom.
