“The soul always knows what to do to heal itself. The challenge is to silence the mind.”
– Caroline Myss
Silencing the mind can be one of the most difficult tasks we as humans have to undertake. It sounds simple yet, if you are anything like me, the brain is usually swimming with “stuff”.
I honestly don’t recall a time in my life when I have been pulled in so many directions at once like I am at present.
Silencing the mind feels like an insurmountable quest lately. When things become so overwhelming I just want to escape, that’s exactly what I do. I find myself walking or surrounding myself with nature in some form or another.
There is nowhere indoors that can possibly come close to the uplifting and enlightening experience of being immersed in the great outdoors.
I feel part of a whole when I am outdoors. Infinitesimally small, yet connected to a web that’s never-ending.
Mother Nature instinctively wraps her loving arms around me and settles my heart and instantly quiets my mind.
It is in this peaceful embrace that my soul begins to heal.
