Nature is a reflection of the self and wherever one looks in nature they will see an aspect of who they truly are…
“Nature always wears the colors of the spirit.”
Nature is beyond grand. It’s a constant source of inspiration, of destruction and the determination to renew and grow again no matter the circumstances.
Whenever I get down or stuck, I turn to nature and I have yet to be let down by it. I find renewal and contentment amid nature and it’s glories. This is why a quote such as this one about how nature wears the colors of the spirit strikes a deeply resonate cord within me.
To breathe in the vast, ever changing multitudes of nature, to be able to set my eyes to feast upon the sheer limitless varieties of colors, textures, and landscapes that nature offers up so readily, is to be rich beyond measure.
I could never do justice to how awesome and awe-inspiring each branch, each leaf, each pebble and cloud are. Poets have spent lifetimes attempting to put into words a shadow of the magnificence they felt as they were fed by nature’s splendor. It’s all so overwhelmingly majestic and humbly divine and we are a part of it and it is a part of us.
Just that alone is enough to make one’s knees weak with sheer wonder. Even writing this I feel such a sense of joy and beauty, knowing that nature and my own nature are a mix of something so sublime and ordinary. It’s such a heady mix, really, this sense of the everyday and the Universal combined with a timeless greatness.
This entire piece is a bit of a babble, and yet I am simply allowing the words to flow as they will, inspired by my thoughts and the senses of my spirit. Perhaps it’ll pique your own sense of the extraordinary that is in nature and encourage you to engage in the natural world around you.
All I know is what I am feeling and that is that I know without a shadow of a doubt that nature always wears the colors of the spirit and my spirit is brighter and bolder than a rainbow, filled with shadows and shades, and brilliantly textured and reflected everywhere I look in the Universe around me.
How does your spirit reflect in the Universe around you?
