Forest Wisdom

Spending Time in unspoiled nature can bring many insights.  The following photos include the insights I received.

 

Inner Growth Comes in Seasons Come Mid Autumn see leaves drop and plants go dormant Your inner growth work is completing, But as with them, energy for a new growth is being “grounded.” In the darkness time of the year, resolutions should not be let go of. This is not the time to act as much as gain resolve and prepare the new roots. As Winter begins to turn to Spring, the buds of new life appear. The stored energy of resolve now pushing forth. Spring through Summer cultivate the new inner growth. For come Mid Autumn the next season begins.

There is no better path To all knowledge and wisdom that dwells within you than solitude. There is no better companion for this solitude than the presence of Nature.

Enchanting Places still exist if we have not let our imaginations be taken from us. If we have not lost well-grounded curiosity. If we have not lost the remembrance that life is a journey. If we have not lost the knowledge that loss, hardship, and separation Can bring an inner richness that can come out of grief.

Gaps in our lives -- times when it seems we have stopped flourishing. -- times when it seems we have lost what we have been rooted in. These are actually necessary times for new growth. Be Patient, and see not stagnancy, but time to re-root. Stay alert and be aware so that you recognize what is next. Beware of false new directions, a sense of urgency may be impulsiveness. Go inward and listen, do not look outwards grabbing the next opportunity. Even when you seek a new door to life, all may close, be at peace. Only one opportunity will open to give you new and enriched soil.

The Fern and the Shamrock We humans sometimes do not realize or see that trees, shrubs and plants Are either drawn toward each other, or purposely stretch away. I love to observe both. Even when they stretch away, It is done with eloquence, grace.... and quiet. May we learn from them.

HUMUS Out of the blending of organic elements comes life. To the unknowledgeable human eye, such places can seem Murky, muddy, and even “de-composing.” But, it is here that the “stuff of life” truly comes from. The lotus flower symbolizes the beauty of life that can come from such murky places. When we honor the genesis of life we begin the true honoring of life itself; When we humans ensure the habitat For the wonderfully incredible diversity of life this planet offers. We find the organic elements of true life for ourselves.

KEEPING A VISION OF THE LIGHT IN THE DARK There may be darkened areas in the “forest of life,” But give yourself the “vision of light” and keep going, For often, a turn brings the light shining on “Leaves of life” shimmering in color.

THE WILD Much of what we humans call “wild” Is not primitive or to be feared. But pure and exquisite beauty That nature bequeaths us from the ions of its existence.
