The Importance of Nature in Our Lives
In old days we lived very closely with nature in one form or another. This was necessary, as we did not live in the sophisticated way we do at the moment, but by listening and feeling our connection with nature. By no longer doing so we have mislaid a lot of the ancient knowledge that we once had at our fingertips
It was possible in the recent past to stand and look up at the skies, and see where the stars were and the story that they had to tell us!
They was so much that we could interpret from the sky, to do with the closeness of certain groups of stars to us at any particular time. We could even read the weather to some extent by looking at the night sky.
These days there is too much light pollution for us to do that unless we make a trip out into the country which many of us really don't always have time or ability to do!
Sometimes we need to feel the earth under our feet. to bury our toes into the grass and closely feel our connection with our Mother Earth
To stand on the shore and become one with the sea and the land and bridge the two.
Stand and gaze at the horizon and feel that you are part of the sea for a few moments and in this way strengthen your emotional connection to water and the oceans of this our planet.
Walk in the woods and feel you're connectedness to the trees, and the ancient beings of the woods who are full of wisdom!
Simply to stand with your hands on the back of a very old, very large tree, is to feel the incredible rush of energy deep down into the planet, which bursts up again high into the heavens and connects both!
These are primal and very ancient and important energies that today we seem to have lost connection to for the greater part. And we really need these energies to balance us as denizens of the Earth!
We no longer have the ancient connection to our Gods of the Woods and our Goddesses of the sea! And we need to re-create these connections to balance our own volatile energies and emotions
Make time in your busy week to be out in nature. Run barefoot through the grass, to wonder alone through quiet woodlands, to stand on the edge of the land and the sea and become one with all there is..
To walk in beauty. to be part of beauty. to be part of 'the all'!
To be blessed by all that is!
