The tree outside my balcony sparkles in the early morning autumn light. I take this in with a breath. A moment or two pass in awe, and I am changed forever.
Something is soothed. Something is opened up. Something is released. It's so small, so subtle... if I get distracted for a second, I'll miss it completely.
The beauty of nature at times is heart breaking - whether it’s a sparkling leaf, a warm smile from a friend, or a kind gesture from a stranger. It breaks our heart open to love. To connection. To the light that pierces through. Yes, especially when everything feels so grim, and grief is overflowing.
Awareness then may dawn that there's 'something greater out there,' and that we can simply take up our place with all others in the web of life.
Practice Suggestion: From a spot inside your home beside a window, on your way to the car, or during a hike, take in the view and let yourself be inspired. Maybe it’s multicolored autumn leaves dancing in the wind. Or white clouds forming magnificent shapes in the blue sky. Take it in with a breath. It takes a nanosecond, requires no effort at all, and provides so much healing.
May you let the beauty of nature mend your spirit,
