A Moment in Spring



A Moment in Spring



The grasses spring up defiantly
in unbelievably vibrant hues of green
moisture clings gently to each blade
dew mixed with rain glistens in the sun

Look . . . . . there is a path
a narrow muddy path trodden in the grass
it is an ancient sight . . . a timeless sight
who made this walked on path in the deep grass?
was it a cow, or deer, or craftsman going to work?

Is it a path made by children heading for the pond?
or was it made by shaman nearing the sacred cave?
what is this path among the grasses? where does it go?

It is a timeless sight seen by our ancestors through time
and it is all these thing and much, much more
it is proof that creatures have passed this way in spring.



 



It is the simple sights that open our spirits to true magic, true transcendance.
To know the wisdom of the ancients, look to the experiences that are timeless.
A rising Moon, the feel of the rain, the glow of firelight,  buds on a plant in spring.

True Magic lies in understanding of these simple miracle of the ordinary.
Nature is the most Ancient Shaman of all.....the Great Teacher and Sacred Seer.
To really see the Magic...look to the ways of Nature and the rhythms that do not change.
Look deeply into simple things and complexity of the Universe will reveal itself to you.

It is in shared experiences of All People and All Generations that True Magic resides,
Waiting to be discovered and understood. Timeless moments stike deep at our core and resonate with a unique vibrational energy. These moments often go unrecognized and unacknowledged in today's busy world.  When you stuimble upon one of these timeless experiences, remember to take a moment to reflect on the countless millions before you who have also shared a such a moment, and had similar perception to your own, you are sharing an experience, a knowing, across time and space, it is a timeless glimpse into eternity.  Let your spirit roam free and let nature and the eternal human spirit of those who have gone before, touch you in this quiet moment upon the soft, green, grass.  Breathe in deeply, relax  .  .  .  and just be.




Take time to lay in the grss and caress the long blades of vibrant green  between your fingers. Smell the rich scent of the earth and the sweet smell of the grass beneath you. Watch as the slightest breeze moves the grass on subtle unseen currents of air. The grass will draw itself toward the sun, and follow the sun as it moves across the sky. 

Take this experience and relish the simple pleasure of the moment, like a child would.  Mindfully aware that,  these are the moments that nourish your soul, and will live forever in your memory when you reflect back on times of peace and contentment.

We, each of us, in our own time, will pass into history, leaving behind, only the energy of our perceptions and experiences of life. It is in these eternal moments that our energy remains the strongest, our lives the most human, our legacy, most authentic, our spirits, most free. These moments should not be allowed to pass, unexperienced.

 

I could have sped past this scene of the Cows, but instead, I stopped, took a deep breath,

and watched the Cows graze, heard the birds sing, and watched the shadows move.

Because I stopped, looked around, and lived in the moment, You can enjoy it too.

Sanity is contagous, so take time to enjoy Nature everyday,, and spread sanity.

Enter the Spiral Grove and remember how to live in the moment, and follow your dreams.
