Animism: The Rocks Were Alive

I found a link to this video on RMN and just had to share the video images here. For those who spend much time in Nature, this will not come as a surprise, but seeing fifteen minutes of nonstop faces and bodies in the rocks synchronizes that inner knowing with tangible reality.

More from the same youtube channel creator, with explanations and photos detailing that these are natural occurrences, not photoshopped, carved, eroded, or otherwise manipulated.:

Those of you who remember The NeverEnding Story might find some similarities to the Rock Biter, but stories of rock people also abound in mythology and legends from around the world. This link will take you to some wise words from Dr. Sharon Blackie, sharing her own experiences and research into What Rock Knows. She includes snippets from Terry Pratchett’s Tiffany Aching series, yet another synchronous nod from our dearly departed and extremely active from beyond friend Tim.

    Rock giants! I’ve always known that rocks are alive. They just move at a much slower pace and crystals, well, they’re certainly alive.

    Cool! Dr Blackie’s citation of Vine Deloria gave me chills: “Sioux philosopher Vine Deloria has written that, for his people, β€˜stones were the most perfect beings because they were self-contained entities that had resolved their social relationships and possessed great knowledge about how every other entity should live.’ And it makes sense that they would, since rocks and stones were here probably before anything else. Plenty of time to observe and grow wise. πŸ™‚ Quote source: Vine Deloria, Spirit and Reason: The Vine Deloria Reader. Golden, Colorado: Fulcrum Publishing (1999) Thanks for posting. I’m sharing with others. πŸ™‚

    Thank you for proving that Rocks are Alive. Just before I watched these videos, I went outside to take my garbage to the bins that are available where I live for recycling, etc. There was a well-known local woman there who collects the cans, pop bottles etc., so I gave her mine. She said, “Thank you” and then said, “Have you seen the hole in the mountain?” I am surrounded by mountains where I live. I’ve often seen the faces in the mountains, but never the holes. This wonderful lady told me, as I was standing there freezing thinking to make a quick run back to the warmth of my apartment, “There is a lake below that hole and that lake will surface and soon show us the warmth of the underground that is alive, too.” Then I watched your videos.

    And one more thing. There is a mountain in the southern Okanagan of Canada that was, at one time, called “Indian Head”, and it is the epitome of the face of a Native American who overlooks the valley where it is situated. Running along behind that face is the natural sculpture of a horse that is obviously in full flight. The history of that rock face is that there were many Native people living on top of that mountain, and white man came and stampeded their horses so that they fell over the side of the cliff along with many of the people who tried to save their horses. That rock face has since been named something mundane like “McIntyre’s Bluff”, but whenever I drive by it and stop to ponder its history, I know its history myself, and sometimes it makes me sad. And yet, I know that they are still alive and their history will never be forgotten.

    Okay, now I’m getting teary. Thank you! Love, B.

  11. Thank you for the additional stories and insights, Barbara! It also reminds me of the Sacred Mounds. They are still alive and their history lives on, whether most people know it or not. Love, Laura
