Birders have it easy. In North America, north of Mexico, there are a mere 914 species of wild birds. In the naturalist pecking order, birders often seem have a holier-than-thou attitude. There’s more plant species in Carroll County than birds in North America. Plant people have to work harder than birders to identify species of interest and remember their names.
Sunday is Pentecost, a festival of the Holy Spirit (Ray 3 of Divine Intelligence). Pentecost is the name given to the descent of the Holy Spirit as tongues of fire appearing above the heads of Christ’s (Piscean World Teacher) disciples (students) in an upper room (plane of the Mind). Pentecost is not a simple bible story. It’s an actual experience for each individual as the Light of the Soul begins to direct the personality with spiritual gifts and virtues – wisdom, understanding (all ideas, all hearts), knowledge and Right Judgment (directing the intellect), wonder, fortitude/courage and respect/reverence (directing our willingness to serve).
