JOY WALKING

Hello, dear ones. It’s been quite awhile since I’ve written, and this post will be short.

I just wanted to share with you one of the things I’ve been doing  to lift up out of the heavy, painful energy that is so pervasive in the world right now. I call it joy-walking. I’m seeking out the beauty right in my neighborhood as I walk each day, and I’m practicing really taking it in, seeing the flora and fauna with fresh, open eyes, and savoring the rich intricacies of nature.

My particular method of doing this at the moment is with photographs. I recently purchased a little clip-on magnification lens for my iPhone, and the photos that I’m getting just fill me with surprise and joy.

There’s a simple yet profound message in this. When the wide lens becomes overwhelming, zoom in to what is beautiful right under your nose and let it fill up the screen of your inner landscape. This is so very healing!

When the wide lens becomes overwhelming, zoom in to what is beautiful right under your nose and let it fill up the screen of your inner landscape.

Here are a few photos for you to enjoy.

Blessings!

      Bless you, Sylvia! What was that old Wordsworth quote? “The World is Too Much With Us.” I think today its “The News is Too Much With Us.” But the world, as in The Earth, has so much sustenance, if we will let ourselves receive it. I’m learning to do this, finally! Xoxo, my friend.

    Enjoyed the pics, Angie! I think you’ve found a way to “see” by getting up real close to nature, blocking out the distractions around you (and us all). I find that helpful as well. Good to hear from you! ~c.
