Why Explore Nature in a Bigger Way?

We can go outside to recreate but miss the connection altogether. The purpose of the human life is to merge with the One-ness, that is the invisible root of interconnectedness. When nature is approached with humility and openness, its pure state is received. True Nature does not throw up any resistance, any imperfections, any illusions. It is an expression of the raw state of the universe, which is always true.

There are so many benefits to abiding in nature in this simple way. Here is a simple list that I have come up with. What resonates with you?

  • Energetic aliveness.
  • Mental clarity.
  • Enhanced intuitive abilities.
  • Humility and a true sense of vulnerability.
  • Reverence and gratitude, and a sense of oneness with ‘other’ life forms.
  • Improved social responsiveness and compassion for others’ suffering and joyful experiences.
  • Deeper sense of purpose in the simplicity of life.
  • Greater access to spontaneous, natural healing.
  • Unity with the gifts of others, teachings from humility.
  • Natural re-alignment with your original instructions.
  • Inspiration of life force and Motivation to carry out unique passions and creativity.
  • Movement to care and empathy for all beings and the earth.
  • Increased physical strength, flexibility and circulation of blood and oxygen through the entire body and brain.

So what’s stopping you from exploring nature in a bigger way? I recommend making a list of all the reasons stopping you from expanding your edges in nature, and then throw it into the fire. Your true nature is to expand into the fullness of awareness, so just trust in this. Whatever you are noticing, is in fact your edge. So notice it fully and you will dissolve those boundaries to find yourself free to be yourself in Nature, as Nature. There you may find yourself dancing outside in a very Big way.

How Change Happens

I want to take this moment to reflect on what it means to live out a true potential, or calling. So to speak from this experience (I am having), there has been for many years a yearning for developing a good offering, utilizing my unique gifts. There is a readiness factor that has taken time to develop. You could say I’ve been carrying anxiety along the way, and chomping at the bit.

But there has grown this understanding that change happens in context. So I had to ask myself, what needed to happen in order for my true offering to come into existence? There has been a long road of practical application in my life, but that is due to the fact that what is longed for here, is not the usual cookie cutter approach. There is a true uniqueness to the consciousness that is wanting to be expressed here, through the larger presence that isn’t even personal.

The building of infrastructure must take place in order to support what is intending to manifest. A house cannot stand without a foundation. So the key operative here is patience, forbearance, and perseverance. Get up every day and face what life presents.

Wilderness Rites of Passage

I would like to invite you to support the complete recognition of your Being. Each one of us carries a unique view into this tapestry of wholeness. Our aim will be to nurture the freedom found in the realization of this simple truth.

This work is a calling that was answered long, long ago. The truth about our connection with nature was discovered in the natural world, and subsequently there has been a leading of groups and individuals into that inner wilderness ever since.

So I welcome you to consider the possibility of deepening your relationship with your Self in nature. To allow life to reveal it’s natural beauty sometimes requires a gentle nudge into the unknown. It is the kind of discovery that will stay with you for the rest of your life.

Which way do I always go?

“Which way do I always go, without realizing it is a chosen path within an unlimited perspective”

It is that reactive directive that moves us towards thought, towards speech, towards action, ultimately towards separation from a present state of awareness to life as it is in the moment.

A fundamental question such as this beckons for an anecdotal perspective. How does one come to know life as seen from an unlimited perspective?

The need for analysis is not useful here. It is in the falling back, in the staying as the unlimited perspective, as the knowing rather than the known, where the true perspective can be realized.

It is the unknown, exactly what is not seen when looking from a limited perspective. But nothing is ever missing because the unlimited reality has always been here, is always true and all encompassing of what is. It is what I am. It is what You are.

The known is observable within the framework of the unknowable, which is truth, which is existence, which is wholeness, which is unchanging, which is here, now, everywhere, as your eternal presence, that which notices the dynamic flow of life unfolding… as the great mystery.

So is there anything to do about this ever changing reality?…. , Perhaps not as a doer, but as the changeless participant of the changing. From the perspective of the whole, is change itself an embodiment of the happenings of the unmanifest becoming the manifest.

How change arises, and the perceived need for its arousal comes to the fore as a creative force opening into life. A flower, a tree, a newborn opening its eyes for the first time. Change comes, not as a grasping for differences, but as the fulfillment of desire.

The fulfillment is in the felt sense of deepening into the unknown, but in fact is more accurately termed as a falling away, a shedding of the layers that illusify a longing for the known, that of separation, which is the limited perspective acting as if it is the limitless knower. From the true perspective of fullness, limitation is an observable experience, occurring inside the limitless.
