Sacred Walks Walks With Nature
Have you ever experienced a sacred walk with nature? Today I'm excited to share with you guys some of the benefits of taking a walk through our natural world. I'm also going to share some of the photos I have taken on my adventures. We as a species have drifted away from the natural world due to our busy lifestyles and society. Nature is very beneficial to our survival and it offers us a chance to connect with energy that is more complex than we know. I hope that this blog post can help motivate people to see the beauty and divinity of our natural world.
Symbolism In Nature
Nature is full of powerful symbolism that anyone can experience. A walk through the forest has a way of opening us up to the endless possibilities of how life adapts and continues to evolve. People all throughout history have been inspired by the magic of nature and all of its glory. One of my favorite quotes is by Albert Einstein when he said "Look deep into nature, and you will understand everything better". This quote rings so much truth with me because it gets to the point. The takeaway from this would be that nature is a direct reflection of ourselves and in order to understand ourselves we must look to nature for the answer.
Nature tell's a story
Nature shares with us a fantastic story of persistence and evolution. When I am on a walk through the woods I notice that I'm always fascinated by the older trees and what what kind of stories they could tell if only they could speak. Sometimes I can see what kinds of challenges the tree may have faced in its early years or what kind of events may have been going on in the area when the tree was first established. I'm always blown away by the many stories one single tree can tell me. I believe nature has a way of showing the progression of time and how it has changed the area through out the years. Nature is always in flux meaning that there is never stability and its always flowing in and out of chaos. The point I'm trying to get at here would be that this is a direct reflection of the human condition.
Art Within Nature
Nature provides so much beauty to our world. Every pattern and every texture is a form of art. It's incredibly beautiful how the natural world presents itself and how it continues to evolve through hardship. As an artist I continually go to nature for inspiration, and to help clear my mind of the chaos absorbed by our fast paced world. We are so very blessed here on plant earth that we get to experience such beauty and wonder form nature.
Nikola Tesla once said, "If you want to understand the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration." This is one of my favorite quotes because it really gets to core of how our universe works. Energy is everywhere and nature is a powerhouse of beautiful and transformative energy that anyone can tap into. Try meditating or doing yoga in nature to help get you to a pure state of mind so that you can receive the purest and rawest form of this energy.
Connection & Unity
All throughout our natural world we see a reoccurring them that touches at unity and being one with everything. Nature teaches us that life here is all connected to the same source. Have you every looked into the eyes of an animal or hugged a tree? If you have chances are you experienced some form of connection and understanding from that experience. Overall nature is a powerful tool that we are so lucky to have on our planet. I hope that this blog can bring people together, and celebrate our divine connection with everything around us.
