Noah Letnerabout this book: How To Live Like A Bird...It was not a conscious choice. It began in a simple way, in the morning I guess. At a time when my mind awakening from slumber was perhaps, more readily available and susceptible to the many sounds emanating from the dawn chorus.
Over time, I would open my eyes while still in bed, not needing an obnoxious alarm bell, but only the birdsongs to arouse my senses. I would wait and listen, hoping to hear that first chirp and tweet of the day. When the birds began to awaken the world, just before sunrise, I would leap out of bed and rush to the window to better hear and hopefully catch a glimpse of the robin or cardinal in action.
I think the birds were able to influence my awakening mind, coming out of delta, maybe into theta and then alpha before reaching the fully awakened state. Yes, I do believe those many songs worked their magic in my open mind. I welcomed the subconscious programming and participated willingly.
The mystery of birds. Is that what I'm attempting to discover or solve? No, never to solve. Birds will always be a mystery to me, a part of the Great Mystery. Discovering, that's what I am doing, discovering that birds are a mystery, a phenomenal part of all life, an integral component of nature. Aye, the natural world unfolds, opening up, allowing me to capture a glimmer of nature's mystery, all in birdsong.
