Here’s an intriguing suggestion.
Take a some time to clear up any outstanding little jobs, then plan a
trip to the country – preferably to a deep forest away from any people,
cars or houses. Quiet and secluded. Best to go on your own – unless you
are very comfortable with an intimate friend.
Find a spot – somewhere that draws you, then sit and make yourself
comfortable. Close your eyes, take a few deep breaths, and let yourself
deeply relax and be as as empty as you now how.
(The mind may continue chattering – just disconnect.)
Gently open your eyes.
After a while, in this stillness, you may feel a subtle change taking
place. It is as though the very air has changed its substance and got
slightly tingly -and so have you!
With this change it could be that you find yourself more closely connected
to the forest. You may find yourself seeing the forest in a way that you
have not done so before – an appreciation – almost an awe.
It is as though the forest is alive in a way you have not realised before.
Then, maybe, another subtle change – you are actually feeling love for the
forest. Yes – love.
The next subtle change maybe that you are now imagining that the forest is
seeing, including and embracing you.
Next, you may feel a warm feeling of acceptance – and love – from the
After a while, yet another change – you and the forest are integrating,
blending, melting into each other – and the feeling of love expands – to
include both the forest, and yourself.
No longer two – one.
