I took a screenshot of this post when I first saw it at the beginning of the month. I was immediately drawn to it recognizing the beauty of its message. I wanted to keep it because of the phenomenal depth that spoke volumes to me.
I have always felt that we could divine any answers about life from the natural world; that we are modeled after it; that we are part of its sacred geometry. And what we consider to be magical is just an awareness of truth that is waiting to be unveiled.
Places in nature allow us to connect more fully with ourselves. Without conscious thought we tend to slow down. We tend to breathe more deeply. We tend to take our time. We tend to notice more. I would say that these surroundings are like personal charging stations, and they help us to become more fully alive.
We respond as we do because we are harmonizing more closely with the real world than we usually do. If we can learn to harness the energy of nature within us, that would be a first step in the discovery of its magic, and we could then learn more of the secrets it has to share.
