Wisdom of the Mountains

There is much wisdom found in the mountains.

Knowledge found in a flowing stream.

Follow the waves as they form & dissipate in the ocean.

Go to mother nature.

Sit, walk, & listen.

Let her heal you of your suffering.

Let the wind dry your tears.

The answers you seek will be found here.

Within you.

Because you are an extension of her beauty.

Namaste 🙏🏼

The Cloud.

I once was a cloud

Floating near a majestic mountain

I once was a rain drop

Falling from the sky

I once lived in a river stream

Cascading down a waterfall

Flowing effortlessly

To those in need

The water within us

Giving us life

Was once a cloud

Rain & river stream

Oneness.

We are nature.

A gentle breeze grazes me.

As I gaze into the deep blue sea.

Nature reminding me once more,

How beautiful she truly is.

May we see the oneness of nature.

Oneness of everything.

The illusion of separation blind us from the ultimate truth.

We are nature.

As long as this illusion lasts.

We will not wake up to save ourselves.

Nature Within.

I woke today seeing the world differently than before.

As I walked through the forest,

I saw my own lungs within the trees.

My heart within the sun above me.

My mind found within a cold waters stream.

For without the trees,

I have no air.

Without the sun,

I have no heart.

No mind,

without clean water.

Abandon Ship!

Unexpected storms.

Unbearable winds.

Unavoidable destruction.

 

Your ship is broken.

Years of neglect.

Storms breaking it piece by piece.

Abandon your ship.

Let go and go into the great unknown.

Dive deep into the darkness of the sea.

 

The water is coldest at the bottom.

Unbearable pressure.

Suffocating pain.

Keep going.

 

As the storm passes, you will see a light.

Follow it.

 

Do not get accustomed to the darkness.

Do not wish for your old ship to rise from the depths.

 

Through the pain, we can grow.

Through the suffering, we can heal.

 

As you reach the surface you smile.

New life has been given.

Gratitude shining from the sun.

 

 

As you wash ashore.

You’re full of joy.

Curious about this new island.

Excited about new adventures.

 

New beginnings have been given.

New experiences to enjoy.

Gratitude.

I breathe in.

I smile.

How wonderful it is to be alive!

 

Joy pulsates through my body.

A smile lights across my face.

My heart beats with compassion.

My lungs full of gratitude.

 

Grateful for pain.

Heartbreak.

My breath.

And Joy.

Grateful to be alive.

 

I will smile.

I will laugh.

I will dance.

For life is impermanent.

 

Thank you life.

Thank you impermanence.

Thank you.
