Peace In The Canyon

Canyon Painting 2Hiking, backpacking, paddling down a river, enjoying my surroundings, is a feeling of utter peace and expansiveness.

All worries feel far away and almost trivial.

When I’m in nature a deep sense of relaxation comes over me, a strong desire to remain in that place— that expansive river canyon and take in all its beauty and majesty.

Whenever I am in that special place that called to me, something happens.

It’s as if I were at the cusp of learning the answer to a great mystery, a revelation that I could have without feeling as if I were simultaneously losing myself, without becoming permanently lost in the dark wilderness of it all.

I feel so connected to the rocks, the sky, the birds, the animals and the plants high above the canyon valley.

I am a part of everything and completely accepted.  I am intensely aware of the great Infinite Joy that permeates everything.

It is as if I’m the only one witnessing the sun rising in the morning, the first one awake in the world besides the birds who were just starting to chirp in the morning sunlight.

When I’m in this peaceful state of mind, I simply allow the beauty of the landscape to wash over me, I let it pull me in and fill me up.

I make connecting to the land wherever I am a regular spiritual practice that nourishes my soul and fills my world with Gods beauty.
