DONA NOBIS PACEM: BLOGBLAST FOR PEACE 2019



SHINRIN YOKU (Forest Bathing)

Tip-toe-ing, I enter nature's house of prayer: leaf rustle, leaf crunch, soft sighing breezes, bird-chirp, chipmunk chatter, thick friendly trunks covered with moss and old man's beard. Staunch, enduring, arms pointing to heaven, the forest is teaching us how to pray. My footsteps slow. My ears attune to Deep Listening. My heartbeat slows to join that of the Earth Mother. I breathe in Peace. I breathe out thankfulness. My prayer: that a world this beautiful will continue to exist.

Forest green and gold,
I take your deep peace with me
out into the world.

I am currently experiencing problems with my comments vanishing into the ether, or going to your Spam folders- even sites I have visited for years. The problem is with wordpress sites and those with Akismet security. I try various methods of giving my sign in info until something works. I want you to know I AM visiting everyone and trying my hardest to comment. Smiles.
