Today was a good day to live
The river does all the chattering
Not burdened with hope and ambition
All is welcome, and with relief, so am I
I seek no validation,
But the trees bestow it
I feel included
As the birds sing their hymns
I’m a Buddha statue in the folage
Death urge lost today
Even if only for today
A little everyday
Take solace in nature. The one thing we can’t push away or run away from is the earth. We are connected to it, permanently. The earth is our most primal connection. Oxygen and water is where we begin.
Sometimes, connecting with other people fails. And that disconnection can feel like being lost in a celestial wasteland. But we are on the ground of our planet home, kept their by it’s invisible pull. We take it for granted.
Start there. Connect to nature first. We’ll never feel alone again.
