Step 1 – You begin to see clearly; leaves and flowers become brighter and more profound.
A beautiful yet challenging discovery. Beautiful in that the flowers, trees and leaves all began to radiate and shine brighter. My focus became more precise and sharper. The challenging part was not understanding what was happening and wondering if I was seeing things.
Was I the only one noticing these things? Were they always like that? Regardless of the answer to those questions, the brightness and connectedness felt while seeing this aspect of nature laid the groundwork for all the amazing things that followed. It was a sure sign that a higher power made these beautiful flowers for us to look at and enjoy.
Stopping to smell the flowers is an integral part of daily life, and I believe that everyone should try this and do this regularly.
The smell of pink peonies now grips my soul and intertwines inside my lungs to become a part of me.
With this newfound understanding and a longing for a life surrounded by nature instead of the smoggy smokestacks of the city, It was time.
Time to move further away from everything I had ever known to cash in on this lost secret that is nature and reconnect to the Earth both as a planet and form of soil. The soil that is used to grow all the food we need to strive and survive.
