Body, Mind and Spirit

by Thela 🦊 Foxgood

I visited with a friend recently who lives on 12 acres of wooded paradise. We went out to explore the woods, and stepping through this portal was like being transported into another realm.



For the Mind

The city behind me, the woods before me. Just for now, I leave it all behind. My busy mind is stilled.

Mindful.

What had been, becomes what is right now; in this moment, this beauty to behold. Scattered thoughts stop their scurry and rush, within the sacred hush of this grove.



For the Body

A breath of wind makes leaves dance

The creek chuckles as twilight approaches

The woods yawn, and the trees stretch their arms up higher

An owl signals through the dim forest light, “Who?”

Always seeing

Always knowing

My body soaks up this green elixir of refreshment



For the Spirit

Nature’s sacred temple

Communion

Presence

Listening

Sanctuary

I used to bring my children out under the trees and say, “Listen!” There would be no sound, and they would look around puzzled. Then, a gentle breeze would move by and they’d hear it:

“The trees are clapping their hands!”

All that is,

worships and honors,

all that is.



And here is one more of the mushrooms as I had an inquiry as to what they were in the above picture πŸ„ I think this one is easier to see what they are 😊



These photos I took in the woods with my phone. I wish I could size them on the post better… but one determines the rest of them it seems. They’re either too small or too large. On a phone though I think they look ok.

Have you taken some time in nature lately? 😊

    I thought they were too. I was so surprised to find them, I walked around a tree and there they were. I’m not sure what kind they are… I have a mushroom app but haven’t had the chance to see if I could find out what kind they are

    Hi there! I thought Sam’s meet and greet page was such a fabulous idea too!! I am going to make a Meet and Greet page as well. Spending time with your garden and watching the butterflies and bees sounds so delightful! I’m so glad to meet fellow nature lovers!! 🌸🌸🌸
