To be honest I have always believed that plants communicate with each other, the other creatures we share this planet with are often much closer to the energetic balance required to live in harmony with our environment. And more sensitive in many ways to the spiritual reality that underlies every single part of the outside physical reality that so many try to insist is all that there is. I for one am glad that there is more to existence than the current consensual reality we have all agreed to share at this time, and that there are people out there in different roles reminding us of this truth.
At the end of this paragraph you can take a look at a scientific explanation of the forest eco-system which almost borders on the spiritual, the meta-physical even gets a mention and one can see the reverence for life on this planet emanating from an obviously very practical person. The trees of all species communicate with each other through the system of roots and the fungi that grow there, moving carbon and nitrogen back and forth according to who needs it. It is a harmonious system if we allow it to be, even dying trees are giving back their legacy to the forest until they finally collapse.
James Cameron in ‘Avatar’ gave us a lovely image of this concept with the native people being able to plug into the planetary consciousness in a number of different ways. I loved the tree of souls in particular where the Na’vi connect with their ancestors through this energetic network that operates outside of time and space, and so can be a container for the souls of those who have passed on.
The world IS a Magical Place to live in if we can but find the eyes to see it!
