A beautiful picture, isn’t it? But it’s nothing in comparison to the real thing. No image or video will ever come close to the real thing.
I recently heard the term Forest Bathing. I believe Forest Bathing is a good thing. How long does a forest bath last? And do the bathers understand their environment? Do Forest Bathers know nature has a language of its own and that understanding the language of nature takes slow observation? I see pods in Forest bathers ears and they seem oblivious to their surroundings. Is this Forest Bathing?
I advise making Forest Bathing your heart’s desire and unplugging from technology. Only then can you truly begin to understand the magic of Earth?
As a child, I lived with the wilderness outside my door. Just a couple of blocks away. And Red River was only three miles from my door. Forest bathing was a daily affair. Barefoot at times. Wiggling my toes in the earth. Wild smells filled my nostrils as I made my trail. Rustling leaves. Squirrels chasing around trees, and the flurry of chirpping birds all around.
I had an advantage growing up. No technology. My forest bathing began at about age eight. Every visit lasted for half a day or more. The forest opened something I didn’t have a name for…maybe it was magic. My world was small. I breathed sweet air. I was the kid swinging from a rope into a pond, hugging and laying against my tree, and dreaming.
The forest and all who integrate their livelihood around and into nature are truly magical. Working with Cosmic Rhythms isn’t a new thing. There are Ancient Mysteries, ancient technology, unexplained history, biblical prophecy, alien origins, secrets of the occult, lost worlds, secret societies, the paranormal, quantum theory, sacred monoliths, and forbidden knowledge that science cannot explain.
There are ancient Earth Grids. Working with these grids has been going on for a long and distinct period. The grids are of nature. Scientists do not have a name for the unseen forces in nature. Some scientists call it magic. Denial of its existence does not serve us well. My personal experience with nature tells me that the magic in nature is extremely real.
Twice in two days, a hawk flew maybe 30 feet above me, and I jumped an unnamed tributary and sat listening for a long while. The babbling brook carving its trail and wonder what architect plays here?
Who am I to be a part of this? And, as a part of this, then best I understand the language of nature. I’ve been learning the language for decades and have my people. Together we grew an industry by 3200% in 10 years. Unprecedented growth! No industry has ever done more.
My people and I sold the US of A on organic farming. It’s been a game-changer. It’s a huge leap for humanity! Organic and Biodynamic farming that works with cosmic rhythms sets a new bar and brings back the relevance of what came before. Understanding that we are a part of this magic is a thrilling discovery. Knowing oneself connects us to the cosmic rhythms. It’s an incredible journey! An intricate trail that’s becoming a more and more traveled trail.
Some Philosophers, Sages, and ancient truth seekers believed to know oneself is the highest form of knowledge. Knowing oneself surpasses all other knowledge, and that Self-knowledge is also timeless, which means that what is gained in one era benefits all subsequent generations. They believed knowing oneself to be so important that they chiseled the words ‘Know Thyself’ above the Greek God Apollo’s tomb. I didn’t learn about this belief until I stumbled on it much later in life through research.
Because of what these Sages and Philosophers did and my experiences growing up, I’m convinced there is more to you and me than meets the eye. My journey takes me beyond what meets the eye. It is a time-consuming, expensive, and magical journey.
Learning about myself was separate from my educational curriculum. It seems our education standard focuses on competitiveness and creating a workforce, with economic growth as its only measuring stick for success. I believe this is an obsolete approach, leaving the majority of society scrambling to just survive…never mind flourish!
The alternatives we embrace will tell our future. I’ve understood for some 50 years why Organic and Biodynamic farming is magic for the 21st Century. I’m a reflection of the flourishing it weaves around the world. My people and I are blazing a flourishing trail with every step we take. We understand how crucial the interconnectedness of the land, water, air, and life, seen and unseen, around us dictates our well-being.
Going beyond the name of a thing is the language humans must learn to speak. Doing so will unlock the mystery which lies within each of us. You know the one. The one always gnawing inside. Who am I? Why am I here? Seemingly, unanswerable, but no longer.
Humans are more than a workforce. We, each of us, are the stewards of our world and must educate ourselves accordingly. Education reform must be a priority. Mandatory curriculum’ must reflect stewardship of our communities, cities, states, countries, and the whole of Earth, at all levels in our educational institutions, never-ending and free. Appropriate time should be allowed for such intricate education. It must not be hurried.
If each of us had been given the time to know ourselves, we would have forged a different trail and would more fully understand Nature’s language, my language, your language…then, I imagine a Paradise.
What each of us do and do not do matters enormously! We, humans, are powerful beyond belief. We’re a Planet of Superbeings; unfortunately, most don’t know this. We’ve been misguided, yes. But we are unstoppable when we find a direction we like. The pioneering spirit in our DNA transcends time. It’s who we are!
Happy Magic for the 21st Century trails!
