Nature within us and without speaks to us always

That has been my experience. I’ve had to toss out everything I’ve been told and learn from the inside out of this body that nature gave me. Dismantle the conditioned self and come into our being with nature. Yes, Mother Nature, in the end, has been my only reliable teacher, parent, Guru, doctor, and friend. She is everywhere, always. We need only pay attention. She is always speaking to us., we need only learn to take heed. …

A prescription that works: Nature Rx

Nature has kept me alive and given me hope. Over and over again. It’s too bad this is considered a joke because it’s very serious. People are dying (literally and/or spiritually) because we are largely cut off from our understanding of who we are. We are members of a community of many diverse species on a planet bursting with yet more life. We are all connected and we need it all. We must remember that we are just one bit of the web of life. Still…go ahead and enjoy the video…I did. … [click on title for the rest of the post]

Fall equinox today…energy shifts underway….

The longer I am psych drug free the more amazing my connection to all things becomes apparent. Not just the seasons, but the cycles of the moon, the weather, sun flares and everything in my environment matters. Yes! Everything matters. We are deeply holistic critters and we are part of all of life and the universe.

I’m so glad to now understand this wondrous process so that I might choose to ride the waves rather than suppress them or otherwise try to run away from my very nature. There may be a time and place to hide from and/or slow down the process, but that, too, should be a choice. For me now, drug free, all these shifts and changes provide data — information — that I might continue to learn to live well and my healing continues to amaze and humble me. It is through this amazing life that I am healed and changed. Life is energy and love that gives us all we need if we are open to receiving it. … [click on title to read and view more]

A way to be on this earth and not shy away from the pain

Wow. Just wow! A wave of gratitude arriving on the shores of a radical earth based faith that is lived, a faith that is in and of itself, nature being natural. Nature engages constantly with itself like this.

I’ll share here that there is this heartbreak in me, a general sadness and despair I feel about many of the issues we face as a collective earth and as a human species. The suffering on this planet often overwhelms me. I sense along with many other animals that whether by natural events or by our own human hands, probably a convergence of both, this earth our home and everything that lives on it is in for massive changes and challenges in the next century and we will need new ways to engage on this planet if we are to make it without devolving into a big ugly mess. And yet life goes on! Even if nature shakes off the current natural inhabitants, life will go on in some new way and so we live on endlessly. … [click on title to read and view more]

The Wild God of the World

Nature itself holds the clue to the divine. In its myriad forms, the great plenitude of being is poured out, streaming from the womb of potentiality, exploding into act. A kind of metaphysical combustion seems smoldering in the fabric of things, a surge of incipient energy breaking out of the bounds of its nuclear forms […]
