We are Nature and Nature expresses itself within us and through us.
We have a body which is interconnected with all Life and it’s organic processes (birth, life, death, transformation, regeneration).
Nature is pure consciousness, it is soul expressed into form, ever sustaining each of us.
She speaks to us about energy in eternal flow, about the complementarity of opposites and its vital importance for balance (day/night, feminine/masculine, light/shadow).
You know you are not All, but you are aware you are a part of the All – an essential part.
The body is a map of your life’s experience; validate it, it’s a precious book of wisdom. With its “cans” and “can’ts”, it moves along – like trees do in the wild woods, carved from strong winters and fruitful springs.
Let it be; move in full power from within – listen, observe, act, be silent.
Let soil and soul recognize and celebrate their oneness.
