“We should notice that we are already supported at every moment. There is the earth below our feet and there is the air, filling our lungs and emptying them. We should begin from this when we need support.” Natalie Goldberg
Animals never forget their connection to nature. Their world IS nature. The earth, the air, the seasons, the many nature creatures with whom they share their world…..these are the things that ground them; these are the things that shape their view of life.
We can learn so much from animals and their natural connection to the earth. Perhaps divine guidance means simply that we follow nature’s cues, listening to her rhythms and taking comfort in her wisdom and her eternal existence.
When we quiet ourselves enough to join our hearts with our animal friends and their deep relationship with nature, we are rewarded with the remembering….the reassurance that we are indeed supported at every moment.
