Into The Depths

Wednesday, November 16, 2016



We live in an age in which stimuli comes at us with rapid fire speed from every direction. Opinions, sounds and images continuously vie for our attention, creating a cacophony through which we sometimes struggle to hear the whisperings of our subconscious minds. This over stimulation constitutes spiritual noise.

Fortunately, nature provides us with a reprieve. The natural environment gently redirects our attention from the things that typically monopolise our focus. Gazing upon mountains, trees or the sea stills our thoughts.  Being in the presence of this vastness reminds us that our preoccupations with the material world are miniscule in the grand (universal) scheme of things,  if they matter at all.  Also, nature's beauty lures us deep within away from blaring distractions, enabling  us to hear the messages that silence holds.
