The more we identify with the various aspects of body and mind - our health, our appearance, our thoughts, emotions and beliefs, our personality - the more we feel ourselves to be separate from those around us and the world we live in. This sense of separation can lead to feelings of loneliness, inadequacy and depression. It can lead to a reckless drive for pleasure as a means of forgetting oneself. It can lead to selfishness and narcissism.

 

Finding time to be in nature with no special task to achieve is healing. Giving the mind permission to slow down and shift its focus from 'doing' to being' makes us feel as if we are waking from a fever dream. We observe that the stronger our awareness, the less the sense of separation; we realise how many of the walls and moats around us are imaginary. Silencing the busy chatter in our mind allows for the perception of unity and connection to manifest. We experience an exhilarating joy.
