one can learn so much from nature.  take some time from your day to explore in nature and see what you might find.  each day that we spend quietly in nature (or in silence or meditation) is a gift, a healing step forward, for ourselves, for others, and for the planet.  may this be the first of many earth days where humanity really grows more in tune with nature, and begins to live more harmoniously with each other and the planet.

on a very short walk today, i noticed a tree that i didn't think was there before.  perhaps being more relaxed (after a nice long, quiet drive by the closed beaches) and in the present moment, it simply felt differently.  or perhaps as i had felt a shift earlier today, i had stepped into an alternate timeline or reality where the tree now existed.  as we learn to work through and shift what is happening in consciousness, things will shift in this physical reality.  in actuality, reality is much more fluid than it is solid, and both big and small things can change effortlessly when we surrender into the presence.  if we let go of our attachment to things being a certain way, the more dream-like our experience of life can become.  it is only in holding onto certain viewpoints or emotional charges that we solidify reality.

the more we live in the present moment, the more profound (or simply calm) experiences we will have (and as these integrate, they will become a part of our natural everyday experience). remember to take time each day to relax and simply sit in the present moment.  doing this as the first thing in the morning (and just before bed) can be very helpful.  if any feeling arises that prevents you from feeling completely calm or present, then sit with that feeling.  by not running from it (and not looking for some distraction), the unpleasant feeling can be fully experienced and dissolve (and then you'll discover a natural peace and bliss that arises). the more you stay in the stillness, the deeper this natural calm becomes.  soon you'll see that this peace fills you much more fully than any external distraction could ever do, and as you learn to live your life from this place, you will find that the underlying peace becomes permanent or easily accessible (and circumstances that may have previously been chaotic or difficult no longer bother you, and you're able to navigate through life with grace and ease).

now is our time to collectively awaken, to remember and realize our true nature as the dreamer of this dream. use any free time you have to spend quietly in meditation or feeling whatever is there internally. the more of us that do this inner work, the more quickly all of humanity will awaken (and the sooner a more beautiful new world will unfold in this dream of life).

if you're struggling with how to spend all the free time you have, learn to sit quietly and embrace the silence.

[from the inner stillness inspiration arises.  and once you're able to face yourself and become comfortable with doing nothing, you'll discover a great joy and deep sense of peace in the quiet solitude]

the most important thing anyone can do right now is to step out of any fear and panic, and step into a place of peace and calm.  meditation or a quiet walk in nature can be quite healing.  if there are any strong emotional feelings arising, learn to love them, embrace them, and let go of any resistance towards them (as you quietly sit with them and feel them), so that they may be fully experienced and permanently dissolved.  when you are able to return to a natural state of silence and peace, spend some time to sit quietly and envision the beautiful new world you want to see.  do this regularly, at least once a day.  give much more attention, energy, and time to imagining and feeling what you want to see unfold in the world, rather than constantly looking for media updates of (the often negative news of) what's happening.
