Inspired by Nature.

If you’ve read any of my other posts you’ll know how much I enjoy walking in the woods with my dog Farley.  When I’m surrounded by the trees and greenery with tree mulch at my feet and quiet all around, except for the bird calls, I feel that I’ve gone to another realm – a spiritual realm.  It is the tonic that my soul longs for in a day otherwise filled with pressure, constraints, obligations and responsibilities.  Walking in the woods, I notice that I can breathe without consciously having to remind myself, like I sometimes do when my body sighs in order to get more oxygen. I feel expanded, joyful and in awe. I feel a huge sense of gratitude for all the gifts I’ve received and a sense that all is well or at least all is as it should be, and for good reason.  That there is a cosmic force at play in my life leading me (sometimes kicking and screaming, or crying) towards my greater good.  At these times. I get a glimmer of the big picture just for a second maybe, that gives me hope and inspires me to keep trekking along and have faith that it’s all good and will ultimately be all good.

These moments of inspired hope that I get from walking in the woods re-kindle my trust and faith that I am being taken care of and guided. That despite moments of doubt, all is well. All…is…well.

I am reminded of the quote from Begin with Yes that says:

As I look back on my life, I realize that every time I thought I was being rejected from something good, I was actually being re-directed to something better.

Is there something that you do to help re-align and refresh yourself when you’re overwhelmed with the pressures of life?  I’d love to hear about it!

  1. Thanks. Well put. One thing leads to another, intentionally or not. As for your question, playing/ working in the garden is my therapy. 🙂
