Nature is the Art of God.
--Sir Thomas Browne
The most relaxing activities may be the ones in which we do absolutely
nothing. And if we can do nothing amid the sounds of nature -- birds
chirping, water bubbling in a brook, the wind rustling in the trees -- so
much the better. During these moments, away from the noise and chaos of
our fast-paced, stress-filled lives, we commune most directly with
nature and our Higher Power. Without distraction, our bodies can totally
relax; there is no danger, no need to be ready to respond to anything.
All we have to do is be.
If we live in the city, we can take refuge in its parks; a quiet room
or the library. We can listen to the sounds of nature on records or
cassette tapes. The point is to slow down, to smell and taste the rain, to
hear the chirping of crickets and the rustling of leaves and our own
thoughts. When we remember nature, we remember -- our bodies remember --
that we are a part of nature, part of something greater than ourselves.
Today help me hear the sounds of nature and let them comfort and heal
