REDWOOD trees live in families. “They have very shallow roots, but redwood trees are connected to each other through their root system,” says pioneer nature defender Julia Butterfly Hill.
When you see a group of redwood trees, often they are all part of the same roots, and they feed one another that way.
Similarly, we are all connected not only to many others but also to our higher self in a spiritual sense.
It’s a kind of multimedia group of former lives and personalities to which we intimately belong. We, ordinary humans, are paradoxical often reveal our hidden genius founded on the collective experience of many lifetimes.
From Mozart’s soaring music to the fearless passion of a Julia Butterfly Hill, we are each drawn to a karmic destiny created by ourselves over many lifetimes. That’s our personal family, and we still know each other, though most may not remember the connection consciously.
Most of us lack a Seer’s knowing, are forced to dive for clues of our history into the far horizons of reincarnation, and sift the karmic sands of countless past lives to uncover the source of our collective powerful talents, dreams, failures, and successes.
Teilhard de Chardin’s idea that we are “spiritual beings immersed in a human experience,” barely begins to explain the genius of a Mozart who composed musical score at the age of five.
Or why Julia Butterfly Hill, a determined twenty-four-year-old, would choose to spend a very dangerous two years alone 200 feet atop a thousand-year-old redwood tree. Alone to save the tree, and others like it, from destruction by a logging company supporting an army of determined clear-cutters.
She climbed up and lived 200 feet atop the giant tree, on a 6-by-6-foot plywood platform, for over two years! Just to save a stand of ancient redwood trees in California from being cut down by Pacific Lumber Company. (For more info Click Here)
Just as Amadeus and Julia, every one of us is born with a destiny and an individual soul identity, and engaging intelligence and experience from former lives to this one.
“To a greater or lesser degree, we remember and act out the memory of them. By standing together in unity and solidarity and love, writes Julia:
we will heal the wounds in the earth and in each other. We can make a positive difference through our actions

Memory can develop slowly or quickly, but as is often the case, has little opportunity to emerge. All depends upon our karmic circumstances, merit and demerit. Yet within the outer circumstances remains an unshakable awareness of an ‘I am I’ consciousness. We are ourselves and none other, whether we remember all the details or not.
