decorate the annals of history. Yet, time has not visited this place. History has not walked through this forest, its footprint missed this place. A different air is breathed here”. An ancient breeze blows though my


bones, disturbing. The silence screams in its wise and simple way. Implacable Nature, unsettles, beckoning a deeper enquiry. Can I listen? Am I capable? How do I approach such a tree? I watch others for a clue, observing, as


swarm after swarm of tourists descend upon this sacred sentinel. A cloud-like cacophony of accents,


lifting, lilting, laughing, the well dressed, unspoken self-importance of tourists, silently communicating they are from a better place and have ‘seen it all’ elsewhere – bigger, better, and more conveniently located. As Nature ushers them into Tane’s


presence, a hush descends, gasps, and whispers ensue, their well versed, world weary, educated importance displaced. We stand, a united nations of tourism,


dwarfed by Nature’s power, face to face with our mortality, our brief moment in history. Jaws drop, ripples of wonder and confusion, vain attempts to join the dots: alive since the time of Christ, 51.8 metres tall, 18.5 metres in girth. Ancient, ageing,

craggy-shaped against a stark, fresh, ageless blue sky. Something silky and silent stirs within,


reminding of the green fuse that runs through us all. A brief encounter unmasks the fear of


insignificance, momentarily connecting, reminding. The tyranny of Nature’s silence unsettles, the need to reassert control surfaces. iPhones click and whirr, freezing the moment, sending it into cyber-space, FB, Instagram, socmed. Fence off, dissect, understand, equate, measure, compare and dwarf. A moment of intimacy, frayed. The crowd thins. ‘Hmmm, nearly as big as the Sequoias’,


says the departing Canadian representative, dashing off, wife in tow, camera in hand, searching for the next natural attraction. All the while, in Nature’s quiet museum,


Tane, a tree that breathed the same air as Christ, silently inching its way upwards toward the light, offering a canopy of shade, and nesting branches for the passing birdlife. Silence once again descends with no-one


listening to the wisdom locked in its thrall. Tane stands. Still. Majestic. Regal. Sitting quietly, I watch as they come


and go, come and go, vainly searching for ways to dwarf the tree. My reverie continues. Nature leaves clues. Will I listen?

Carmel Bell is one of the world’s top medical intuitives. She’s so intuitive that she foretold her own death and told her husband and her doctor. She moreover told them that, even though she’d be dead for quite a while, she should be revived because she had it within her own powers to heal herself. Sure enough, she died in bed one night ...


I can attest that she’s alive and kicking now – I’m having lunch with her next week. [Ed]

Let’s stop pretending. You have lost


your connection. Is this tree talking to me? Or am I lost


in quiet imaginings? I can no longer tell. A strange malady is sweeping


the world: spiritual Alzheimer’s, characterised by a convenient forgetting of our deep natural memories. But all is not lost. Nature can lead you


home. She offers reliable, dependable clues. How do I approach such a wise and


ancient tree, so willing to sha re its bounty? I fall silent. A petite Japanese woman


approaches. She stands facing the tree. Silent. Still. Slowly she stretches out her arms, raises


them high above her head and slowly brings her palms to her heart, bowing her head. A thrill of energy passes between her and the tree, a connection, a mutual revelling in the gift of recognition. Humility. Majesty resounds. I stand. Approach. Bow.
