Living in a harmony with nature can be challenging. It means that we slow down when it is raining hard or when the sun is at it’s highest point. Stop. Slow down. Look at the sky. Smell the flowers. Time and schedules melt away.
An amazing realisation occurs when we slow down and let ourselves become immersed in nature. We begin to feel connected. The feeling of separation falls away. We watch the ants and become fascinated by them. We look at the cows in the morning and compassion stirs in our heart. We ride the waves and surrender to the power of the ocean. Ego starts to soften.
As you let go of your ego and start to respect everything around you your compassion grows. You become focused on what you observe. You find your own inner peace and strength. You connect with spirit – the Atman.
You feel connected to the Divine, God, or whatever you call it – a powerful, loving presence. When you look up into the trees or at the animals, you start to recognize the Divine in everything else. You feel this presence loving and supporting you. In this way, being outdoors in nature brings you closer to your Higher-Self. So in between your yoga classes, feel free to play outdoors. Immerse yourself in nature and find your inner peace!
