I was fortunate enough this past weekend to attend a talk at Well Springs Farm in Port Murray NJ. At this workshop the speaker was David Winston an herbologist and alchemist. I was blown away and walked away wanting to know more. I was happy to hear that David teaches Herbology and will be patient to wait until 2014 for his next class. This evening was a reminder to me that there is so much to learn out there and we MUST keep our minds and hearts open to all that is there for us, expressing itself in our daily lives. I personally find it interesting that God/The Universe takes it's time unveiling itself... I might ask why now at the age of 62 I am finding out about this AND have a GREAT interest in this information as well. It does seem like a mystery to me. Maybe as we grow older, possibly a bit wiser (not so sure but maybe) our interests change and more of the mystery of life becomes an important element of what one wants to know more about. I know this is true for me.
I am fascinated by our connection to the world around us. It seems each year I become more aware of our connection to nature through studies, great teachers and information that has been around for eons. Yet, I find that all of this was not known to me until the last 8 to 10 years, with more of it in the last 5 years.
If you feel you do not have a great connection to nature and the world around you let me suggest you walk outside, inhale the fresh air, look up into the sky, touch a tree and if you can be barefoot step on the ground and let the earth tickle your feet. Hang there for a few minutes and take it in. This is so theraputic and healing. You might only have to do it for 5 to 10 minutes to feel the joy of life around you. If you can bask in this even longer, do so.
It is Our World.... It is Your World! Get to know it better!
