Do You Pay Close Attention To Nature?

Do you pay close attention to nature?

Do you make time to notice its details? I don’t mean driving by a forest or a lake and simply admiring its beauty through the car window, but rather, parking that car, getting out, and immersing yourself in all that nature offers. Of course, what I mean is are you making time to put your feet in it, on it, and soak up its medicine? Are you allowing yourself to receive its gifts?

Do you pay close attention to nature, leaving behind your phone when you do, allowing yourself to be fully present? Do you get up close and personal and pay attention to the lines, layers, and colors? Those colors that are so spectacular that you’ve convinced yourself they can’t be naturally occurring, but they are, and they’re right in front of you. A living, breathing rainbow that you can touch with your bare hands.

Do you ever allow nature to wash over you, rinse away your worries, and show you the way, reminding you of who you are? And while you’re there, and in it, do you stay long enough to see yourself in its reflection?

There it is with all of its wondrous beauty. And there you are with the same.

Do you pay close attention to nature and see that it’s a mirror? The mountains, the land, and the flowers reflect you back to you. Can you see it? Those details you notice in the water, the soil, the trees, both those standing and those decomposing, exist within life, and within you.

The growth, continual cycles, and steady breathing occur within you, too.

And do you ever consider that a landscape astounds you simply through being itself? Can you see that it’s the same with you? You’re astounding simple through being (you).

Do you pay close attention to nature and have you noticed what happens when you do?

Will you?
