So, both my partners in crime are away tonight… (aka - my son and my better half). This left me in a position to do exactly as I pleased. Well, I could have gone wild really… but I think I have enough of that trait naturally… no need to add to it hey?! (Nonsense!!! – haha!)
After finally removing my cemented butt from my desk chair, I decided to take a drive and go and select a variety of fermented friends for the weekend ahead. On my way back home I stopped to spoil my 1984 tank to a carwash. She loved every minute – and so did I, although my enjoyment was split 50/50 between the toasted cheese and tomato sandwich and my Merc’s new bling!
On arriving home, I went and watered my garden, popped a couple of drumsticks in the oven alongside some roast potatoes and then went about my business. It seemed like a fantastic evening to light a fire and although I had absolutely no reason to do so, as my dinner was ready and waiting in the oven, it was an opportunity which I would have regretted, if missed… and so lit the fire I did!
I planted my rear on a chair and reveled in my surroundings.
After getting up at one point to breathe onto the slowl coal in order to keep the diminishing flame alive, I realized just how much fun I was having. Just me, my garden, a fire and the darkness around me.
It made me think about earlier in the evening when I was watering the garden and soaking up the sheer enjoyment of my feet in the growing puddles and the smell of the heat leaving the leaves as the water cooled them from the day’s heat.
I once argued the power of crystals to a young woman when she said they had no relevance or power. My argument was: When you go into a forest or walk on a beach, how do you feel afterward? Do you feel rejuvenated? Revived and energized? Her answer was yes. So why, then, was it so difficult to accept that a rock – also a part of this “nature” that made you feel so good, would carry that energy with it too? Needless to say, I never got an answer from her.
We are all energy. Everything around us is energy and we all carry energy with us. Which energy we choose to bring into our lives however, is entirely up to us – so is, what we decide to do with it.
We are all element.
It isn’t complicated.
It only takes five minutes of your day to walk outside – ANYWHERE OUTSIDE – and reap the benefits of mother-nature. It is a practice that is exercised far too little by all of us on a day to day basis (when in fact we need it more because of our “modern lifestyles”.
Go and ground yourself. It is fantastically invigorating!
Earth. Air. Fire. Water.
