Nature is the purest and most fundamental expression of harmony. It is no surprise then, that being in nature would restore harmony within us where there is dissonance — grounding and centering the mind and spirit, balancing turbulent emotions, and bringing our bodies back to their natural equilibrium.
Animal spirits come to us with great wisdom to share, to help us heal and to help us grow. They act as our teachers, our guides, our allies, our challengers and our protectors. They encourage us to find balance and harmony, they bring to us courage and strength, they show us how to adapt, how to stand our ground, and they reflect to us the great wisdom inherent in ourselves already.
I think my biggest fear has become that split second between this world and the next, and looking back with regret instead of looking forward, satisfied, satiated, and ready for a new adventure.
