At Home in Nature
A retreat into the vast inner realm of life.
There you’ll find an ocean of possibilities.
An acre of Greenland stretching out in front of you.
In the air a breeze of jasmine.
Sounds prick your earlobes with a sweet lullaby.
You go in a little deeper.
As if passing through the doorway cleanses your heart.
To its’ purest form.
You are like a baby,
Alive to everything around you.
A calm settles over you
Like a warm and soft blanket.
That blocks out the darkness
That you have carried for a lifetime.
Such a sweet release.
Your body a little lighter.
Each step a careful maneuver
Onto the soft wet grass.
Small strands tickle your toes.
You are at Home.
A slight wink from the sun
Opens your heart.
Filling you completely.
Joy seep out of your pores
As a profuse sweat.
Light surrounds you
You are loved and protected
In the arms of Mother Nature.
Journey into Mindfulness
Mindfully walk and connect to the Earth.
Feel the solid ground beneath your feet.
Imagine an anchor rooted with trees.
Holding you firmly to the ground.
Raise your hands above your head.
Reach for the sky.
Feel the connection from Earth to Heaven.
You have just grounded yourself.
Your footsteps are left in the sand.
Turn around see where you have been.
Shake the dust off your heels.
The next step you take will be light and airy.
You now walk with a gentle gait.
Touching the earth ever so gently.
You once again glance over your shoulders.
There are no footprints in the sand.
Your body floats above the ground.
Moving you to higher places.
Left on the ground is your past.
Which begins to shatter and break apart.
The heavy burden that you used to carry.
Now lay on the ground nourishing those who follow your footpath.
You are a part of the earth.
As you live the garden on Earth will flourish and thrive.
