Human Nature And The Way Of The Tree – David Whitehead Vlog

This is my latest video log on philosophy, nature, human nature, the current state of the world and some ideas on personal solutions to depression, lack of motivation and pessimism. – DW


“The best political, social, and spiritual work we can do is to withdraw the projection of our shadow onto others.”
― C.G. Jung

“The teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you to enter the house of his wisdom but rather leads you to the threshold of your mind.”
– Kahlil Gibran

“To be nobody-but-myself – in a world which
is doing its best, night and day, to make me
like everybody else – means to fight the
hardest battle which any human being can
fight, and never stop fighting.”
-Edward E. Cummings

What good the science that destroys itself? What purpose in awakening every morning for a wearisome daily struggle to reach the evening in a state of exhaustion, to reach the agony of such an empty life?… As long as cerebral intelligence governs the world, it will be dominated by beings of inferior mentality, for man’s life will be but struggle of force and power, struggle of vanity, struggle of wealth, struggle for an existence whose aim is warped…But man is not a beast; he is animated. Man is an epitome of the cosmos, a creature housing the divine spark. Man is not an evolved amphibian, an animal form that became what we are. Man is perfect at his origin, a divine being who has degenerated into what we are.
~ R. A. Schwaller de Lubicz (Egyptian

Nature is visible Spirit; Spirit is invisible Nature

    “The truth against the world” as the druids once said – Tsarion can tell
    you more on that line.. Thank you tho David. Your “made in the universe”
    video hit home with me. I booked a ticket to Van Island to do a little
    hiking and connect with some nature (despite the off season for it), i
    probably wouldn’t have made that choice if it were not for your advice in
    the vlog. Looking forward to the next post man.

    But, from a certain perspective, isn’t Tsarion evangelical to a degree in
    his work?
    Ok – splitting hairs – he’s not forcing anyone to physically listen to him;
    but when you are armed with Truth the only question is surely ‘how’ to
    educate, not whether or not to…
    For me, I have great trust that the lion’s share of this education process
    is expertly administered by Fate / circumstance / luck / despair / karma /
    dharma / prana / etc. Anything else, via human education, is a confirmation
    as to what the ‘gut’ already understands…
    Go well DW!
