Wild Contemplation: an invitation for resonance
We are all an inherent aspect of nature; it is a part of our life, a part of who we are. Yet we’re rapidly losing touch with the fact that we are animals like all other living creatures. Part of a rich diversity of plants, animals, insects, fungi, rocks, and water. A symphony of aromas, sights, textures, sounds, and flavors.
Can you have a feeling for a tree? Look at it. See the majesty it contains, listen to the sound it makes, smell its vanilla bark, and feel it’s prickly edges. Or be sensitive to a little plant, the weed that’s creeping up the wall, catching sunlight light that’s dancing on its leaves. When we fully embrace the natural world with all our senses, we deeply feel that we are members of a community of living, thriving beings.
Many of us are so caught up in our theaters of work, problems, plans and desires, that we stop only briefly to gaze at the moon, commenting on its reflected beauty. But what happens when you watch it with new eyes as if you’ve never seen it before. Drink in the stillness of the night sky allowing the wonder to percolate throughout your body. Experience it with the freshness of the very first time.
Come into resonance with nature, a communion. Not a verbal description, but with awareness and deep curiosity to feel your presence and place. Flood your body with a sensual experience. Let go of the habit to simply name something “beautiful” then moving on to the next attraction. Allow your senses to fill you with the extraordinary beauty of the natural world.
