This post is a Follow Up to my recent poem: Poem 3, From Nurture to Nature:
The following day I was still recuperating from my overexertion. I decided to kick back, and put on the next installment of a particular Joseph Campbell series. He began by explaining that in the same way we would have our first, deep connection with our mother, we must turn to nature with that same presence.
Whoah, that is what my poem was about! Taking it as how we can completely surrender to our mother, maybe I’m completely surrendering myself to nature. It is in this state that we are completely in tune with nature, one with nature, finally, in harmony with nature.
Yoda, our pug, was itching for his walk, so I pressed paused and we went outside. I was still in a lot of pain, so I figured being in nature might help.
Everyday we walk around the park and stop and sit underneath a HUGE, old oak tree. This day, as we sat, I could feel my pain, just as intense as the day before. I reminded myself to just surrender to nature, like I would to my mother.
As soon as I surrendered my being I felt, starting at my crown, an unfoldment in what was described in my mind as “My Human Tension Field or Shield”, I felt that layer just wash away. As soon as this happened, a bird flew over and landed on the closest branch to us. The bird was staring at me, which was rather odd, as I am there everyday, and I watch those birds: they are always eating bugs and doing their bird thing. But I felt something coming from the bird, and as soon as I did, Yoda began to continuously bark at the bird. He is almost seven years old, and has never barked at birds.
All I could think was that I’d like to explore this realm even further.
