A crescendo of violence and ugliness is growing fast as we see threat of American military involvement in Syria, growing tension between Israel and Iran, mass displacement of ethnic groups in many countries through prejudice, discrimination and cruelty, increasing global poverty, and a population explosion which threatens the viability of our beautiful planet. I know that these critical world events are helping to move us to the next level of consciousness and that it is our human choice that it happens this way, but it can be hard to remain untouched by all that is occurring.
Nature is healing always, but at times like these, if we allow it, her sights and sounds can be both comforting and rebalancing, showing us what is valid and what is important. She reminds us that these “problems” are transitory and illusory, and that in time they will be forgotten: the truth lies in the Spirit within every thing, including you and me, and nature, for it is that which will last forever.]]>
