The love, freedom & joy of nature

Here in the WATCH section you’ll find short video clips from me of my regualr excursions and hikes into the natural beauty of the surrounding Niagara Escarpment where I live. Connecting with the earth and nature’s unconditional benevolence can free us from all manner of the stress and anxiety of today’s world, often inducing deep states of calm, joy, well-being and appreciation, regardless of circumstance.  Perhaps even watching these short clips and reading the words will have a similar effect…and so I share them here for you.

 Appreciation, in and of itself, can inspire you in creating a new way of living and livelihood directly linked to following your true nature, showing you that another way of living and creating outside of the current enslaved system is possible.  Just imagine your work and creativity and total life being one continual flow of your utmost inner joy…that’s where we are heading.

Giving is up to you if you feel moved to give a gift of support. What feels good to you?

There comes a time in human and earth’s evolution when all that matters is the way the light dances on the water or how the trees in the forest look at dawn, drenched in dew and sparkling with love.  I think we’re there now.  If I could gaze into the heart of both earth and human, would I see light pulsating and radiating?  Would I see a current of love flowing like a river through vein and valley?  I know I would…

I sit and watch and listen.  Water falls over ancient rock.  Everything moves, yet we are immovable but also flowing.  Forest, rock and water are a mirror.  They are real.  They are true.  They are free.  This is the preciousness of Existence.  Being free has nothng to do with money, dropping the body or leaving the earth.  Being free means washing away and letting go of everything that isn’t real and true.  What lives behind all the mind chatter, the need to BE someone or prove your worth?  Go there and find out.  Be still yet flowing…

What would it feel like to live gently, slowly and powerfully on the earth, taking only what we need, giving thanks for nature’s gifts and sharing our own gifts with others?  All we have to do is look to nature for the answer and perhaps let the following words sink deeply into your being…

“A gift comes to you through no action of your own, free, having moved toward you without your beckoning.   It is not a reward; you cannot earn it, or call it to you, or even deserve it.  And yet it appears.  Your only role is to be present and open eyed.  Gifts exist in the realm of humility and mystery – as with acts of random kindness, we do not know their source.”
