|The Darshan of Sri Nut|
For anyone who has rescued a baby squirrel,
nurtured and loved them, a radical change of heart
There is an awakening to a bigger love
than most humans are typically aware of.
This love I call 'squirrelove', but in actuality
it is the ONE HEART that includes all beings.
It is one's true Self.... which is pure love.
This is not the human romantic kind of love
that is spoken of here. Mr.Nut says that humans
don't really know this BIG love because they
tend to try to "hold on" to people and animals
that they love. He says that the ONE HEART
doesn't need to hold onto anyone because
there is no other place they can be...
except IN the ONE HEART.
Mr.Nut says it is the very helplessness of a baby squirrel that touches us so deeply. It is their innocent trust in life that is so attractive. There are not even words to describe this experience because it is so incredible. Most often there are just tears of gratitude for this beautiful happening.

This is the great lesson we can learn from the little
squirrels that come into our lives. We can learn to
love and let go as needed. We don't require our
children to live with us their entire lives... we in
fact encourage them to go out into the world when
they have grown up. On the other hand, we want
to hold onto these little squirrels for as long as
possible because the love they give us is like no
other love... it is purely unconditional. It is not a
smothering kind of love, but rather a detached love
that has no requirements of us. They are teaching
us about impersonal love.
Mr.Nut says this is what Awakening is all about.
To find out that you don't NEED love, but rather
that you ARE love is the greatest understanding.
And this is the very reason why little squirrels
come into our lives!
