Finding Peace in Nature
“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.” ~John Muir
Have you ever experience a sense of profound peace and spiritual renewal in nature? Chances are you have. Recently, my husband and I set out for the Pacific Northwest to take in the sites that this country embodies. The experience was one of a life-time and will be permanently etched in my mind and spirit. I truly understand now how the ancient sages developed their wisdom. Spending the greater part of their life not only surrounded by nature but being a part of it, living it, breathing it and listening to it. Today, man is consumed with "the noise" or technology that demands his attention. Albeit technology makes for comfort and convenience, it also detracts from the simple things in life. It is in the simplicity that wisdom is found. Why not take some time out in your day and simplify, get outside and "be" with nature, look, listen, feel, smell and touch it. I'm sure you will find your day to be more peaceful.
