Sometimes simply by sitting, the soul collects wisdom

Every morning I take a walk, as I’ve mentioned in other blogs, to my favorite bench that overlooks the Rhine Valley, the mountains of Switzerland, and a bit of France. For 1½ years I have been enjoying the quietness of this morning atmosphere, diving into the always-changing sensations each day presents. Sometimes I do the Spiritual Postures, or read, daydream, or listen to what the Earth wants to let me know. I align to myself and prepare for the duties of the day ahead.

Something happens while benching . . . my relationship to Earth changes. It seems that I redefine my home – the place where I live – meaning our Earth.

The Earth seems to sense our new relationship and releases her all-knowing truth about life. Her energy opens into me – a vast library of information. She tells me her stories, her hidden codes, knowledge, and wisdom, that are stored in the ground, stones, water, mountains, trees, and valleys.

Sometimes simply by sitting, the soul collects wisdom

I begin to understand that when I am in a loving relationship with Earth, when I truly love her, her response is to release to me everything that I need to know and everything I need to experience. Then the Earth feels like my home – my real home – and I feel more alive.

She is so willing to share her wisdom, knowledge, and truth. She wants me to thrive and be connected to all that is.

I restore her beauty by loving her, and she restores my beauty by loving me. As I am benching and listening to the songs of birds creating symphony upon symphony orchestrated for the moment, I believe in myself, and a momentum is created that will continuously shine light into my life.

Within the vastness of our universe, I have a place to dwell: the Earth. A majestic Home.

Much love,

PS: Sitting on the bench loving the Earth, I feel her integrity wanting to connect with the integrity of me. I feel how my gratitude towards her sustains me with new trust. Talk to Earth, and she will answer! The art of benching might begin a new love affair . . . I invite you to find out!
