Healing In Nature
Scurrying up the mountainside, I am insignificant. Sitting atop a boulder, I am at home. I turn my face into sunlight to feel special. I sense the wind encompassing, and the snowfall divine. In nature, I find the most important feeling of all- belonging. I’m not trying to prove anything. I’m not hustling for my worth. I don’t feel tested. There’s no one to judge me. My mind becomes quiet.
When I seek out time in nature, I’m returning home to myself. I access love and acceptance among trees. A cold rock beneath my palm resonates with life. In the forest, I can Just Be. Therein lies the healing.
I want to do more of what makes me feel better. I’m glad to have identified my love of hiking, and grateful for the active meditation it supports.
Keep your face always toward the sunshine – and the shadows will fall behind you.
