Plenty of empty hours recently have given me opportunity to examine just about every area of my life. One of the nearest and dearest to my heart is my connection to Mother Nature, which is obvious by my posts over the past year and a half.
But yet in these past few weeks, Human Nature has shown up to be so very important to me. Time and again, when I have felt so very low, a call or message or card in the mail has raised me up. Maybe I have been missing something all along. After all, everything that exists is the one body of life. And honestly, I have intentionally tried to keep myself apart from the thing that I cannot separate from.
I keep coming back to this photo. It is my Robert, who recently passed, loving up on his sister, Lauri. Yep, I asked them to take a posed photo, but Robert isn’t posing at all. He is in total communion; with the warmth of the sunshine, with the smell of the jasmine blooming behind them, with the birds singing around them, and with his sister’s heart. I can read his face and he was in the place of ONENESS with all that exists, and so at peace to be there.
So for a while, I am going to post photos that feature more of the Human Nature around me. Maybe I will learn where Mother Nature and Human Nature become one. I hope that I will learn from Robert’s example and feel the oneness more often, because it looks pretty darn good.
