"The Mountains are calling and I must go."~ John Muir
You hear it...that whisper. The call. Somewhere deep inside your spirit she calls you to reconnect. With nature. With your soul. It is so easy to get caught up in the rush, lost in the current of everyday life and go against our own flow. It is then you know, you feel that longing...to hear the drum of your heartbeat among the trees, instead of the pounding of your feet on the pavement. Nature is that place we can escape to; when the noise of the world becomes too much for us to bear...it is there we can leave behind our troubles, if only for a moment, and return to our wild truth.
"We often forget that WE ARE NATURE. Nature is not something separate from us. So when we say that we have lost our connection to nature, we’ve lost our connection to ourselves.” ~ Andy Goldsworthy
So, when you feel you have lost yourself, slow down...and retreat into the wild, for connection. With mother nature and yourself. Give yourself permission to be free and wild; to take a break from rush of life...throw up a hammock and take rest under the shade of a tree, and take sacred communion with nature, the birds, the trees...soak in the sun until it fades to moon, and you can't tell fireflies from stars. There is healing there.
Discover yourself again in the earth, and renew your cells among her wild love. The worries, the pressure of life...take it to the wild.
