Nature’s Breath

by Gwydion Ap Alder

[WVox Sponsor]

Age Group: Adult



It is only when we are within Nature, when we’re functioning in our role as sacred, integral aspects of this Universe, only when we are connected as part of “The Blessed Whole” that we may truly LIVE.

Man’s Fear and anxiety so often derived from Ego’s deluded “self-protective strategies” engenders disconnection from others we meet upon our Pathways and also from Nature’s healing touch.

Our culture has moved Man so very far from his origins within the sweet rhythm and embrace of Nature, moved us so far that today we rely upon our technological toys to “connect”.

“Connection” today so often means a quick text, Facebook, an e-mail, something providing us with a sterile “safe-connection” that can act instead to insulate us from True Connection.

But we can, if we choose, take time to simply BE in Nature, and with awareness seek and find our reconnection to Her healing breath and sacred lessons thereby experiencing ONENESS with all things.

Life’s rhythms have become discordant and dis-eased from our too-busy, chaotic culture, and sadly we frequently allow tasks and to-do lists to become masters and overseers instead of servants.

It is my belief that Disconnection, due to Ego-Fears promptings, is at the heart of all that is wrong with our world, it’s a poison to our core that steals hope and allows the Grey-Disease to persist.

So that we accept the dull pain of unconscious, unaware, disconnected life due to our long held fear of taking risks to grow, of finding inner strength and courage to step out and LIVE…really LIVE

Seeing others accepting grey half-lives makes me sad beyond mere words to express, seeing those that have resigned themselves to unhappy lives, not really living but only “existing” caught in fear’s cold grasp.

So I, for one, will choose to spend my time walking within Nature’s beautiful and Sacred Precincts, I will share Her crystal exhalations reveling in each breeze that dances through the trees.

I will sit beneath ancient Junipers that were old when my ancestors first came to this continent, listening to their wisdom garnered across centuries, it is there with them that I will seek rest in Nature’s arms
And by so Resting will I discover inside the strength and the courage to look deep and SEE that which has always been within me, to see my Truth and my Connection to this Blessed Universe.

There is this Golden light which radiates outwards from my Core Connecting me with All and Everything, but only when I’m able to Stop, Breath, Cease Struggling with mundane concerns and just BE.

Nature’s Sacred Breath is there to partake of, it’s a gift of Connection and Love from the Universe to our Spirit, so come Dance and Drum with me in Her forests, walk with me upon Her mountains.

Breath Nature’s magick in, Let go, Become ONE with the Universe’s Great Song, that Song dwelling deep within each of us, for it is only our fears and busy-ness that deafens our Heart to It’s Tune.

Blessed Be, May Harmony Find You!
