But if God is the Hive & the Honeybee



do not

believe in

God because I’ve

never seen him. If he

wanted me to believe in him,

then surely he would come and speak

with me. He would come in through my door

saying “Here I am!” But if God is the hive and

the honeybee, and pollen and nectar and sun and moon,

then I believe in her and I believe in her at every moment, and my

life is a prayer and a celebration and a communion with the eyes

and through the ears. I honor her by living spontaneously,

as a woman who opens her eyes and truly sees, and

I call her the hive and the honeybee and pollen

and sun and moon and I love her

without thinking of her, and

I think of her by seeing

and hearing, and

I am with



by Fernando Pessoa

Isn’t this passage just so beautiful? I discovered it in a book I am reading The Shamanic way of the Bees and instantly fell in love. I do not believe in a God in a religious or traditional sense but I do believe in a force that lives in all creatures like the honey bee, to me ‘God’ is completely feminine because it is always creating or giving birth to new life. This force of nature also resides in us, living via us and with us, it is ‘I’ as it is the ‘Un-I-verse’

Save the Bees!
