Touching the Earth

Written by on July 2, 2007 in The Healing Journey with 0 Comments

It’s so nice to be home after a long weekend at work. The first thing I did when I came home this morning was take a good look at my garden. I love to stand there and drink in the colors of my beautiful flowers. There’s something incredibly healing about green, dotted with delicate hues of pink, purple, white and yellow.

I have a postage stamp size flower garden, but it doesn’t take a lot of nature to soothe one’s soul. And of course, while looking at my pretty flowers, I noticed the weeds that had crept up while I was away. I didn’t mind.

Before I unpacked my items from work, I set about pulling up the faster growing weeds to give my flowers room to breathe and grow.

Oh, would that we were that vigilant in uprooting those initial pesky thoughts of doubt and fear. But this morning there was no thought of processing or working things out. Just being in the present moment.

And in that simple state of being, I learned more than for all my studying.

There seems to be a pattern evolving here. Has it really taken me this long, entering into this older phase of my life finally learn the value of not struggling?
