BEE POLLEN: THE GOLD DUST OF NATURE
In “The Dalai Lama, A Policy of Kindness: An Anthology of Writings By and About the Dalai Lama”, His Holiness states;
“I am attracted to bees because I like honey---it is really delicious. Their product is something we cannot produce, very beautiful, isn’t it? I exploit them too much, I think. Even these insects have certain responsibilities, they work together very nicely.
They have no constitution, they have no law, no police, nothing, but they work together effectively. This is because of nature. Similarly, each part of a flower is not arranged by humans but by nature.
The force of nature is something remarkable. We human beings, we have constitutions, we have law, we have a police force, we have religion, we have many things. But in actual practice, I think we are behind those small insects. The bees are in a full blown embrace with Nature that is probably difficult for us in “the other cycle” to understand fully. The bees do not harm. How unique is that!?
- Dalai Lama
Bees fly to flowers, and inside this incredible environment, they search for their food, pollen and nectar. The pollen from the flower is the genetic material of the plant. This pollen is the basic primal energy representing one of the most powerful urges in nature, that is, the urge to reproduce. Pollen truly is the “gold dust of nature”. It is the culmination of the life force of plants. This life force, when unleashed through cross pollination largely done by the bees, is the beginning of much of the foods that insects, birds, other animals and humans have developed on.
One of 2 foods that are made without anything being killed. The other is milk.
