|David Arora & his "Wheel of the Fungi." Girdwood Fungus Fair 2014.|
I know I already said I'm not into gurus, but maybe I lied.
I just spent the last couple of hours consuming the words & natural, unaffected presence of mycologist David Arora...
He talked about mushroom hunting & how it's really about RELATIONSHIPS.
Relationships between fungi & trees,
And relationships between trees & people,
And relationships between people & people,
And relationship between people & fungi...
And the tears welled up in my eyes,
& my heart exploded.
And then he talked about the differences between freedom & enslavement,
And about the people who can name the trees & those who simply know them,
And the people who live with the forests & those who visit on weekends...
And the tears welled up in my eyes again & I swear they did in his too...
Is this what it is like to encounter a guru?
