When I woke up this morning I could barely move. I had worked really hard yesterday. But, I decided that today I wanted to go out and find wild flowers, not to pick them, just to see them. There is so much chaos in our world right now, I just wanted to go see something pretty.
I hopped in my car, and set off in search of flowers. It didn’t take long, before I knew it I was knee deep in them. It was strange once I was walking on the earth among the flowers and the pines, all of my pain disappeared. There wasn’t even any remembrance of it. It seems when you are immersed in the beauty of nature it has a healing presence.
I was in awe at the beauty of the flowers, the air was so fresh and cool it was early morning, and the birds were singing. I spent quite a while just walking around seeing the flowers. I was so lost in the beauty of our world that I forgot about all of the chaos. There were no riots among the flowers, just color, and the buzzing of bees.
At one point I seen the sun filter through the trees and at that moment it struck me to my core, darkness only exists because we as a collective have chosen it. Things don’t have to be this way. I thought if only people could just stop, and see the world as it really is, we wouldn’t be in the darkness anymore. It could be accomplished in one moment.
If only everyone could let go of hatred, and fear. If instead we would just see what is not broken, we could enhance the beauty and magnify it.
Sure it is true, there is a lot wrong, a lot that needs fixed. But my gosh there is so much that isn’t wrong. The world we live in is beautiful beyond all words. It’s not even possible to describe the depth of the beauty of our world. Not just that but the depth of beauty of living beings. We are something so amazing.
Each of us is older than time, made of the cosmos. Our hearts beat, and we are able to have life and see the beauty of this world. We can love, we can laugh. It just seems like we have a priceless treasure right in our own hands and we are throwing it away.
There is light and beauty all around us, darkness and chaos are a choice. All we have to do is take one step, and walk into the light.
It’s not that our world is broken, it’s just how we see the world that’s broken.
Be the light that you wish to see in the world.
Look for the beauty and you will find it.
