Bound to Nature

by - May 23, 2017

When your heart is bound to nature, there is a sense of wholeness that fills your being.

For a moment, close your eyes, imagine driving down a blossomed path to a beautiful cotton candy pink cottage with wooden shutters, tucked away between flowering trees. A table dressed in orchids and succulents and acres of nurtured forest. Your own secret botanic gardens.

The wind bellowing through the palms imitates a stream of spring water as the bees hum along the Lilac Queen's wreath. In that moment, in pure silence, a total sense of bliss. 

Barefoot, earthed to the pastured carpet, feel the blades of grass dance between the webs of your toes. Tickling, almost. The sunlight beam on your face - glowing.... you are alive. You are here, in this moment.

Breathing in the fresh dew drop morning aura.
Feeling the wind shimmy at the trestles that dangled from your topknot.
Listening to the songbirds cozied above. 
Seeing untouched nature in it's raw glory.

Your soul in complete gratitude. 
All of this.

There is magic. 
Magic is everywhere if you just look.
