A few minutes ago I sat quietly outside, just listening. A crow high above, seagulls off in the distance, a red squirrel bouncing through the dry autumn leaves, two ducks winging through the air, crickets! Wow! The sounds of the universal-energetic-intelligence! Nature! So beautiful! So serene! I felt the tension in my body dissipating, my eyes lighting up, a smile crossing my lips! I was listening to the sounds of nature and I felt awesome!
This morning I sat down at the lake watching the waves roll gently past the dock on their journey shoreward. There is nothing as therapeutic for me as listening to waves softly lapping the shore and this was pure bliss! Watching and listening, I felt completely at peace, awash in tranquility! My body was free from tension and trembling and I was grateful! It was a soothing moment and I felt awesome!
PS … were they waves or millions of particles rolling in unison? Albert!?!
This morning as the sun arose, I watched it reflecting off the leaves on the western side of the lake! Many of the leaves are already turning color and the effect provided a brilliant canvas of nature’s intuitive artistry! Observing it from our front window, I felt an indescribable joy in every cell of my body, an incredible lightness in every fibre of my being! It was a spectacular moment and I felt humbly awesome!
I remember well the day we moved to Manitoulin Island! It was two years ago, August 26. We left Toronto at 6:30 PM, a convoy of three … I, Mari and Mari’s daughter! On the way north, we encountered a rainstorm and then were treated to a dazzling display of the northern lights. We made it to the bridge that connects the island to the mainland and 1 AM. Driving across the island, we saw a dozen deer, before pulling into our driveway an hour later! Stepping out of my truck to a bright, starry night, the first sound I heard was that of a loon! The hauntingly beautiful call of this magnificently plumaged black-and-white member of the duck family is my favorite sound in the universe! Hearing it that night, I felt at ease, at peace, safe, elated! I sensed my innate connection to the divine and I knew I was home! It was a stunning moment and I felt awesome!
A couple of weeks ago I decided to change the focus of the blogs I was posting. I did this for two reasons. First, I have already covered everything I know about recovering from Parkinson’s. It is all included in my protocol! Second, I decided that my posts would be more beneficial if they were more inspirational in nature and content. Help others to experience happiness, even if only for a moment!
Mari and I were on the deck this morning, she enjoying her coffee, I enjoying my smoothie, both of us enjoying the warm weather, when we heard the distinctive call of a cardinal! We have been hearing the hauntingly beautiful sound of this elusive, shy bird all summer, but we have yet to see it! It’s as if it is saying, you hoo, you hoo, come and find me! With its distinct color the cardinal is a strikingly beautiful bird and I always marvel at the sight and sound of one! Hearing our friend this morning, I felt uplifted, joyful, at peace! It was a very special moment and I felt awesome!
This morning whilst taking our daily dip in the lake, a large flock of about 200 Canada geese took off just down the shoreline. They flew directly in front of our dock, honking vociferously, wing tips just above a glassy surface, providing a spectacular reflection of the spectacle! It was a breathtaking moment! My jaw dropped wondrously open and my mind was filled with, WOW! My body shivered like that of a baby experiencing ice cream for the first time! Every cell in my body tingled, I smiled and I felt awesome!
This morning I sat on the lawn, bathing in sunlight while enjoying a bowl of oatmeal! Surrounded by bees busily pollinating the wildflowers that border our yard, they were unconcerned about my presence! It was a delightful moment and I felt awesome!
Conflict arises when one party tries to impose its will on another party and the second party resists, or worse still, counters by trying to impose its will on the first party.
We are presently having such an experience on the road we live on!
This morning I discovered some fresh raspberries growing in the raspberry bush beside our driveway! I was delighted, thinking they were done a month ago! I ate them straight off the vine! They were juicy and delicious and I felt awesome!
