The Secret Life of Plants

We watched this documentary for the first time the other night, and it's pretty mind-blowing.  It seems like a lot of the books and movies I'm coming across lately have a central theme of pan-consciousness.  There is energy in most everything (does anything not have energy? man-made polymers?), but we are just conduits for this energy, the source is the thing that people have come up with so many different names for: The Universe, God, The Great Mystery, That Which Is Which Was and Will Always Be, etc.

The movie also strengthened my feelings on intention.  Life will always take life, whether it's plants or animals, but I believe my intentions should always be of gratitude and respect when eating anything.

Here's a clip:
