The second energy of nature within the element of earth is lush, green and full of life. It encompasses all of life – the abundant and balanced world of flora and fauna where interdependent life abounds.
Here the seeker finds life revealed in all of its glory. The archetype associated with this quality of nature is that of the indigenous hunter who carefully seeks out his prey, tracking and pursuing it until he finds just the right moment to draw his arrow and let it hit its mark.
Within this act of seeking or hunting there is a deep sense of respect for life, and careful action to ensure that one only takes what is needed to sustain life.
This energy is referred to as Oxossi or Ochossi.
