Magic in nature


While some may consider my ability to capture spirit generated Orb images with a camera, magical! I believe that we all live amidst magic and only need to settle our minds to witness it.

Tripping? No! Magic is interpreted through one’s personal perception. In this case, I’m referring to the simplistic, yet miraculous magic of nature. It abounds all around us! From the modest apartment garden window box, to the majesty of the Northwest woods, magic through the miracle of renewed and continued evolutionary life; surrounds us with the sound, sight and smell, of the explosion of the spring and coming summer season.

The key to truly witnessing the magic of nature is to slow down long enough to take it all in.

No, I mean really stop and smell the roses. You’ll be blown away by the marvelous, complex, simplicity of the inner workings of a flower. Hear the sounds of countless birds bouncing off of tree branches in hopes of the smallest of seed, or the splash of a bull frog swimming in a pond or drainage pipe. Perhaps the drone of a dragonfly, mixing with the melodious chirp of the unseen cricket will treat your ear.

You’ll find the magic of an ever evolving nature show that rivals any 3D movie adventure; and it’s absolutely free, yet priceless.

Try it! Turn off the cell phone, crush the I pad, disable the Kindle; find a quiet corner in your own yard, apartment balcony, or city park. Close your eyes for 1 minute and listen. If you’re fortunate, the noises of human existence will give way to those of nature. From the sound of a neighbor’s cat walking on a fence rail, to the calling of a blue jay, or the magical drone of a hummingbird, or honey bee.

Just sit quietly and take it all in. Return to the roots of your existence by communing with nature; if for only a moment.

Center your inner being, still your soul; release your stress through this very simple, natural meditation.

Discover the magic that surrounds you and share it with those that you care for. Most of us are born with the ability to hear, but to truly hear? Takes practice. Now… open your soul’s eye, and let the journey begin.

Peace.

      Park, When I moved from New York to Oregon I learned to connect to nature with the help of my nature loving soulmate, and it fills me with a depth of peace that being in the city didn't allow for me to experience. Nature is a teacher, I often get inspiration for my writings by communing with nature.

      Voted up and awesome!

      "The key to truly witnessing the magic of nature is to slow down long enough to take it all in." - SO TRUE! I think most people don't notice the beauty that is all around them all of the time! Voted up and awesome.
