Recently in my Reiki 1 class, a student was puzzled by what she was learning about positive energy through Reiki and what she sees happening in the world. She inquired as to how I have stayed balanced with this dichotomy on a daily basis. Her question not only took me off guard, but also reminded me of the spiritual phrase, “Living in the world but not of it.” I had to contemplate exactly how I cope in a world so different from mine.
I find that I do not let the struggles in the world bring be down because I stay connected to nature. I garden and get my hands in the earth to feel the love of Mother Nature. I spend time nurturing my plants, and the love they give me radiates out to those who pass by my property. I make sure I observe the sun setting most nights and I get into the mountains as often as possible. Some might call this staying grounded, i.e. keeping one foot on the earth and the other in the divine of the sky.
One way to make sure our parks will be here for future generations is to support our state parks. One simple way is to purchase a special license plate that donates money to Colorado state parks. I receive comments on the beauty of my license plate often. Click here if you want to get one yourself.
It is crucial at this time to support this program, because if they do not sell 400 more plates by July 2017 the program will be dissolved. Please help our parks while staying connected to the love of Nature. If you do not live in Colorado, inquire and see if your location has a similar program.
In the light,
