Adi Da Samraj once asked if we could hear the crickets outside. He began considering the crickets’ chirping: “It is a kind of vibration they make, a kind of invocation, even a kind of prayer, a sign of their Contemplation of the Divine. And they do it all together, and that togetherness, that community of crickets making that sound is their form of Contemplation.”
And then He went on to describe how this is true throughout all of nature, and that human beings are generally estranged from it, and are not organized in terms of Divine Communion and in terms of supporting one another’s Spiritual sensitivity and keeping the vibration, as He put it, alive and strong and passing it on from generation to generation.
