004 The Spirit In Nature

Fellow students of the Spirit, I highly recommend the class series on 'The Spirit of Nature'.  My connection with 'Mother' was restored thru listening to these classes.  Here's a little bit more about Her.  Got a minute?...

When I think about the Spirit of Nature, I think about 'Mother'...for the 'Spirit of Nature' is feminine to me. She feels especially close at times when I see a mist covering the land with such mystery. I always feel Her then. Or the warmth, awe, and deep appreciation one feels when beholding a beautiful landscape...

I remember such a time, when first I saw Colorado...I had driven 'round a bin when an unbelievably gorgeous sight was suddenly unveiled before me. Picture this: luscious rolling green valley filled with wildflowers of golden yellows and fiery reds, majestic dark mountains with luminous snow atop that looked neon white with a lavender glow about them..and a small deep blue lake way down in the valley...a clear blue sky. The beauty was so breath taking I had to pull over and pray right then and there!

There's a 'presence' one feels and can deeply connect with. Just being quiet and listening, looking within at the same time you are looking around...She is there...One can walk just for the purpose of listening for Her, as I often now do. One can enjoy their tea or coffee outside quietly taking in the morning and opening to Her, welcoming Her. Giving thanks for those little birds that frequent your home...the sounds they make. It makes me smile. You?

Now, I had grown apart from Mother for many years...and it wasn't until I took the course about the Spirit of Nature that I at once responded to Friend's words in the lecture. It was something like 'you have to go out and meet nature where it is'. I immediately closed my computer and set out for a walk...and She was there, straight away!  After all those years of quiet between us...I am so grateful!  I intend to take my walks with 'Mother' from now on...
