"You are looking for what is looking."

Birds, stones, flowers, and crystals have all held special significance for the human spirit, as Eckhart Tolle explains in his book, "A New Earth". He says, when a human gives his still and alert attention to these beautiful but temporary manifestations of the underlying one Life, or one Consciousness, he can sense the divine life essence, the one indwelling consciousness or spirit in every creature, every life-form, and recognize it as one with their own essence and so love it as themselves.
