“Imagine”, he said, “hundreds of years from now after we both are gone, this forest will still be here. Here is where the Presence is, within Eternity. I just Love this Forest so much!”
There we stood, this man and I, quietly and reverently speaking. I shared my Heart by saying, “Think about it. We are leaving an energy imprint every time we come here. We in fact, become a part of this Forest, thereby living in No-Time right along with these trees. Also, Mother unconditionally takes the heavy world energy within our cells, the toxins if you will, and negates them for us, giving back to us our Balance, our Calm, our Health.”
The man thought for a moment, and then replied, “How beautifully you just spoke. I make sure I come here as often as I can. This Forest unclogs my brain so that I again can think, and It makes me feel so much better in general.” As he was speaking, a Red Tail Hawk flew across the path we stood upon, so very close to us. We wrapped our Sacred Conversation up quickly for this man wanted to take a picture of this bird.
What a Gift to speak to another BEing who understands, and who respects Mother Nature as much as I do. Even our Love for cats we have in common. I recommended our in-home euthanasia Vet to him as he confided how he has a very ill cat who is terrified of going to the Vet. “My cat does not deserve to know terror at the end of his life ” he told me.
He took a piece of paper out of his coat pocket, writing in pen this Vet’s name. Looking at me he said with such gratitude, “Thank you so much! You have no idea how relieved I am that I ran into you.”
I replied, “Oh, I have a very good idea how you feel. I take care of mostly wild and feral cats who have sustained their innate fear of people.” I reassured him how peaceful and beautiful the euthanasia carried out by this Vet is, and how very deeply grateful I am for her in my life.
This conversation was no coincidence. Our exchange left smiles imprinted on our Faces, Hearts, Souls, and Spirits. How glorious to bump into someone who understands that we leave an energy imprint wherever we go and how Source is found so prevalently through Mother Nature.
This man was my age if not older. His words are not “New Age phooey.” Uh-uh! His words were based on a lifetime of experiences that led him to the Forest to discover where the Presence is strongest. We both agreed, that for us, it is not within a building, but within Mother, that we find our Home, our Source. Bless his Heart!
