Plants have a personality and individuality, they go through phases and moods just like people, sometimes they are active, other times inactive. Flowers and plants feel the energy of love and all plants thrive in a calm and happy environment, they especially enjoy music and have varied tastes depending on what species they are, the emotion they release is dictated by their surroundings. Tests were conducted in the 70? In October an article was published in Russia proclaiming that plants talk, they not only talk they scream, they stoically bear pain and accept misfortune.
But that would not be the whole truth, nor a sufficient answer to a question relating to God, who is infinite, unlimited and beyond the reach of speech and mind.
Cosmic Consciousness is not an accident or chance. It is the summit, accessible by a thorny path that has steps—slippery steps.
I ascended them step by step the hard way; but at every stage I experienced God coming into my life and lifting me easily to the next stage. My father was fond of ceremonial worship in which he was very regular.
To my child-mind the image he worshipped was God; and I delighted in helping father in the worship by bringing him flowers and other articles of worship. The deep inner satisfaction that he and I derived from such worship implanted in my heart a strong conviction that God was in such images devoutly worshipped by His devotees.
Thus did God first come into my life and place my foot on the first rung of the spiritual ladder. As an adult I was fond of gymnastics and vigorous exercises. I learnt fencing from a teacher who belonged to a low caste.
He was a Harijan. I could go to him only for a few days before I was made to understand that it was unbecoming of a caste-Brahmin to play the student to an untouchable. I thought deeply over the matter.
He was my Guru all right. So I immediately went to him with flowers, sweets and clothes and garlanded him, placed flowers at his feet and prostrated myself before him. Thus did God come into my life to remove the veil of caste distinctions. How very valuable this step was I could realise soon after this, for I was to enter the medical profession and serve all, and the persistence of caste distinctions would have made that service a mockery.
With this mist cleared by the light of God, it was easy and natural for me to serve everyone. I took keen delight in every kind of service connected with the healing and alleviation of human misery. If there was a good prescription for malaria, I felt that the whole world should know it the next moment.
Any knowledge about the prevention of diseases, promotion of health and healing of diseases I was eager to acquire and share with all. Then in Malaya, God came to me in the form of the sick. It is difficult for me now to single out any instance, and perhaps it is unnecessary.
Time and space are concepts of the mind and have no meaning in God.
I can look back now upon the whole period of my stay in Malaya as a single event in which God came to me in the form of the sick and suffering. People are sick physically and mentally. To some, life is lingering death; and to others, death is more welcome than life; some invite death and commit suicide, unable to face life.
The aspiration grew within me that if God had not made this world merely as a hell where wicked people would be thrown to suffer, and if there is as I intuitively felt there should be something other than this misery and this helpless existence, it should be known well and experienced.
It was at this crucial point in my life that God came to me as a religious mendicant who gave me the first lesson in Vedanta. The positive aspects of life here and the real end and aim of human life were made apparent. This drew me from Malaya to the Himalaya.
God now came to me in the form of an all-consuming aspiration to realise Him as the Self of all. Meditation and service went apace; and then came various spiritual experiences.

The movie "City of Joy" was an excellent use of class time and it shows life in Calcutta very vividly. Life in Calcutta is described in detail and more vividly in the movie than in the textbook.
"City of Joy" helped me in understanding the city of Calcutta and the countr. At the siege of Vienna in Islam seemed poised to overrun Christian Europe. We are in a new phase of a very old war. vol 6 pg 1.
