I explore nature weekly. I try to go someplace new every time. My body is conditioned these days. It knows …get up on Sunday morning and GO! Nature is the only place I am able to truly clear my head and heart…to once again find clarity! It’s where I truly come back into understanding that happiness is merely moments. That there are always infinite options.
But, sometimes, old conditioned patterns are in the driver’s seat making our decisions for us out of fear. I try to at least find the most honest spaces…even in fear. I’m not sure if I’ve made the right call at times, especially when it’s emotionally driven…but moving forward is the only way to go once the choice is made. Time in nature never ceases to instill a lesson of this time.
Like today…is all about unbridled trust (thank you Lance for this term) at letting things unfold naturally. Trusting in the natural way of things. I think I may have stumbled this week, acting hastily letting go of something I wasn’t ready to. But, had made such a mess of the scenario, OUT, was the only way that felt safe. These, I know are old patterns. Old ways of rationalizing and doing everything in power to feel protected and safe, even if I’m not being threatened. Even if it is my own mind making my heart feel threatened. I can’t go back. I gotta keep letting the path unfold….I HAVE to trust that down deep, there was an emotion, a small faint voice, a truth that was guiding me correctly. I had to listen. Nature, in turn provides endless signs and gifts along the path to keep one trusting in indeed ‘This IS the Way!’ and ALWAYS she fills us back up with her abundance. Never judging…only accepting..allowing things to be exactly as they are.
From here on out, I must remember, there are many paths in the forest and as we walk forward in new wisdom, it is essential to allow for unlimited options to appear! Otherwise we end up limiting our potential unbridled happiness
