It seems as though we might be making progress with some of our coronavirus problems. A few states are starting to reopen. I am cautiously optimistic. But a bigger part of me, for various reasons, is seeking peace.
Again this week, I attempted to produce a meatier blog. (Does that sound strange, coming from a vegan?) But, again, the gentler aspects of my being would not have it. After putting up an extended fight for the same reason last week, (with this result: https://microofthemacro.com/2020/05/08/awed-by-beauty-a-collage/), I didn’t try to oppose it this time. So, in an effort to evoke a calming peace for myself and for you, I’d like to share more images and inspirational words on Nature.
As long as I live, I’ll hear waterfalls and birds and winds sing.
I’ll interpret the rocks, learn the language of flood, storm, and the avalanche.
I’ll acquaint myself with the glaciers and wild gardens,
and get as near the heart of the world as I can.
– John Muir
I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately,
to front only the essential facts of life,
and see if I could not learn what it had to teach,
and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.
– Henry David Thoreau
Simplicity, patience, compassion.
These three are your greatest treasures.
– Lao Tzu
The goal of life is to make your heartbeat
match the beat of the universe,
to match your nature with Nature.
– Joseph Campbell
The earth does not belong to man;
man belongs to the earth.
This we know.
All things are connected
like the blood which unites one family.
All things are connected.
– Chief Seattle
Blessings for Peace,
