Panlinea continued to lay on the grass and listen to the birds singing their song. Hummingbirds, robins, cardinals, blue jays, orioles, herons – they were all so beautiful to listen to! Some, sung more with what seemed an intention to sound like music, while others were just squawking to claim their territory – which was normal. Listening as the birds remained steadfast in their singing, all of a sudden the birds stopped. Silence. No more birds were singing. Panlinea leaned up to see what was going on.
As she looked around to see what was what, there didn’t seem to be any reason for the birds to have stopped singing. Ironically, as Panlinea had that thought, the chorus chimed in again with their song. Laying back down to the ground, Panlinea wondered what that was all about. Why would they stop for no reason like that and why did they start playing again when I had the thought that they shouldn’t have stopped? How weird – are the birds tied to my thought somehow?
As that thought washed through her, the chirping got louder almost as if the birds were offering an answer to her question. Hmmm, so the birds are tied to my thoughts. The chirping got louder, still! Well that’s rather interesting. I wonder if this is happening because of all of the time and energy I’ve spent listening the birds and paying attention to their song. Maybe we’re so interconnected because of all of the love I have offered to them by noticing their song, by caring for them, and by recognizing their importance in the world.
Panlinea heard the different melodies from the different birds and then wondered something else. She wondered, with this newfound ability, if she would be able to alter the pitch or tone of the bird’s song. Okay, let’s see if I can change who sings and when. Panlinea imagined that the blue jays would slow their tune down. As she imagined it, so shall it be done. The blue jays slowed down their song, just slightly, as Panlinea only wanted to see if it would work.
This is amazing! I can write music with the birds, how wonderful! And, in fact, it was quite wonderful. Panlinea had stumbled upon something from the time-hono[u]red past of humanity that had been forgotten for generations. She stumbled upon the fact that humans were part of nature and nature was part of humans. Because of this, the actions witnessed in nature could be altered by things that were part of nature like humans. Meaning, humans had the ability to effect change on nature just like nature concurrently held the ability to redirect the course of humanity.
It had been quite some time since someone had redirected the way nature behaved in an intentional and positive way. Panlinea, realizing that her love for the birds making all the more sense, was overwhelmed with joy! She could make music however she wanted, whenever she wanted, for whatever she wanted! It was glorious!
She remembered when her great-grandparents would tell her about these people who used to write such beautiful music for humans… now Panlinea was going to be able to rival these greats! Even better, Panlinea wasn’t going to need instruments of any kind – her instruments were the birds!
