I’ve learned, over time — with hornets and other winged insects that they look for and follow the Light. Trap one in a room with windows and they will track the sun and continue to beat against the glass, trying to get to the Light.
There’s a lesson there, surely.
Even though the Light might seem like it’s just there, you might have to find another route, less so, the obvious.
To get them out, I literally “blow” them along the glass, exhaling and “whispering” them along — their beating — to the next window, then out the open glass.
Not so the hummingbird — who, visiting me, panicked against the glass, till falling, exhausted on the glass windowed footing of the island studio.
Raise your finger, a small twig to a bird’s breast and they will grasp it with their talons — once they overcome the fear of your “scale” and out-of-proportion movement.
Size does matter.
This hummingbird was tired enough that finally, I picked her up — in a meditative celebration of the fabulous design of such small miracles — the wonder of small things, I could feel her tiny heart beating.
Finally, I carried her out — and away she went.
Off into the Light.
The delicacy of
is a truly marvel-making
wonderment — “how small, how beautiful, how is it possible?”
A gift for the experiencer.
Onwards, to the Light of these answers.
