I'm always dreaming with my eyes wide open and the dreams I have create my daily reality. Not needing much to set me free, somewhere in nature is where you will most likely find me.
Ocean breezes blow open the window to my soul but it used to be mountain top breezes that did the same. It doesn't matter where in the world you are, GO OUTSIDE! Since the day I can remember my parents couldn't get me to come in before the sun set and I always smelled of the earth.
I am a child of nature.
Nowadays my favorite time of the day is watching the sun rise. Each day I feel the earth squish between my toes whether it is sand or jungle dirt. Staring into the sky is a daily occurrence for me as I'm always watching the moving clouds or the sunset paint the sky. A shooting star is an opportunity to make a wish and I wouldn't miss it for the world.
Just as I write this blog I'm sitting outdoors listening to the birds chirp, the monkeys howl and my cat Monti just ran by with a mouse squeaking in his mouth. Eeeew. Geckos are my noisy roommates, and are just as part of the house as the positive energy that surrounds it.
For me, I have to allow my body to love what it loves.
Whoever you are Mother Nature offers itself over to your imagination.
Amongst the simple beauty of nature is where I'm most happy. If you ever feel afraid, sad, lost, just go outside somewhere you can be alone with Mother Nature, she knows how to comfort the loneliest heart. Remember, tears are only water and water nourishes the trees, the earth, your garden and anything you want to grow. It's in the midst of Mother Nature's simple beauty you will find peace within.
“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” -Albert Einstein
