“There are times when wind is howling
and the ocean is roaring so loud
you can’t hear your own cries of delight.
When layer upon layer of beauty press on you with such force
that you barely have the courage to press the shutter. – Dewitt Jones
This may seem like a strange response to your last post Richard, but Dewitt, who is a world-renowned photographer, has touched me with the beauty and depth of his photography and words so many, many times. This just so happened to be the e-mail photo and words of the day. I received it after the event I speak of below.
As I was driving home, just moments ago, from a great weight training and swim workout with music loud enough to make my body want to move some more, a very large hawk flew directly across my windshield in perfect timing for me to feel the free flight energy (versus the free fall!) and for her to give me the indisputable message – fly free as you become “gainfully unemployed”!
As Dewitt’s quote above reflects I was in absolute awe of this creature of nature and her message to me. I did cry out in delight, and it was challenging to hold all of the energy that flowed in within that particular moment in time.
Nature often brings us messages. In fact I would say it constantly brings us messages if we will open our eyes, ears, and heart to receive them. I was blessed to have received such a powerful message today as I start my very last week in a conventional job. (last day on 7/1!)
As nature brings us daily messages so does our body. Your 7 simple suggestions for health are a great reminder! You are correct in that I do all of them, but occasionally forget when I most need to remember! Just the simple return to increased water intake resolved much of my “crash and burn” syndrome at the end of the 10-hour work day.
That is not to say that this work environment is good for me over all, but at least I am able to finish out the last few days with simple gratitude for the energy I do possess. This is the life energy that will now go into creative livelihood, and I suspect it will skyrocket!
When we are doing what we love, and what “turns us on” I have learned that our bodies respond with increased energy and vital health. However, there are times when there is an imbalance present and we fall prey to some malady – hopefully minor like a headache or cold. Are there messages here as well?
So here I am drinking more water, and my attention is on “free flight” with the ability to touch down or change direction at any time I so desire. The “free fall” was perhaps more about letting go of control and served its purpose. Now at this point in the journey it feels good to see the texture, patterns, and lay of the land so to speak from a bird’s eye view, and have curiosity and my heart lead the way for the next stages of this journey.
Thank you for your presence in my life!
