Henry David Thoreau said, "In wildness is the preservation of the world." All I know is... my preservation is dependent on the wildness that sustains me. My continued health, my physical, mental and emotional states depend:
on my spiritual connection with Nature
on the solace and rejuvenation I gain from contemplating Nature every day
and on the communion I make from her symbolic wisdom
These are just a few of the ways I am nourished, comforted and sustained by being and communing with the natural greenworld. When I don’t walk in Nature for some time, I feel a lack deep inside, something missing in my very essence. Not only does the world of people, near and far, drain my energy more often than not, but keeping up a busy pace also places
much stress upon my bodymind that I cannot afford to sustain for long periods of time.
In his book When the Body Says No, the cost of Hidden Stress, Gabor Mate elaborates on how we run the very real risk ofgetting sick with serious diseases if we constantly ignore what our body is trying to tell us on a daily basis.
And as Candace Pert says in her book Psychosomatic Wellness, the bodymind wants to heal! If we don’t listen to this ongoingconversation in our body’s cellular communication network, the natural healing process already present is adverselyaffected, initiating a cascade of distress and disease that may be impossible to reverse in a short amount of time in the future.
Take the time this week to make time for a walk in the park, a stroll on the beach, for feeding the birds and watching them soar, or for sitting under a tree and making some deep green contact.
Take a moment now to contemplate the following:
The dance of the leaves…
reminders of joyful
Nature creates multiples of itself
a million times over
year after year
Never any want, any need
No scarcity mentality here
scattered through her web of Life
A sacred reminder
It’s all there, just reach
No need for neediness or greed
Just reach; receive, feel, be, care, honour
Her generous offerings
Fall into freedom and let go
sway as the branch and dance as the leaf
Blessings are here and now
fall into the abundance of Nature
just outside your door
All you need
is already within as sacred energy
ready for exchange
Embrace the dance of Abundance
