FINDING MY TRUE SELF: THE SERENITY OF UNCONDITIONAL LOVE IN NATURE DISSOLVES NEGATIVE SPACE
I was thinking about the negatives. Not just the negatives for survival but the negatives that we sometimes feel in interactions with people. It is so often difficult to say how we really feel and to ask for space when we feel smothered by someone else's actions or emotions. To use the negatives felt as a guide to give yourself space is important. To nurture yourself is important, not only to yourself but to the people who depend on you. This Webstring Model activity taught me to listen to my feelings and take steps to resolve them more rather then just letting them build up and “suffering” them. To use them as indicators rather than to let them overwhelm me. I know my “natural” state is that of contentment and serenity and that can be restored by seeking out natural attractions.
This evening when I went out onto the deck to do the activity I was stressed. It had been a busy day with a deadline at work and preparing for a birthday celebration for my Mother tomorrow with the children. My parents are also staying with us right now that made it even more tricky. Anyway, I went outside into the twilight and almost immediately felt better. The evening breeze and dimming light together with the smell of freshly cut grass was very soothing. As I looked about I felt attractions to the sliver of the moon and the sky, still blue, but with the occasional cloud. My eyes were attracted by the relative brightness of white flowers on a creeper that were starting to fold up for the night and as I saw everything winding down I found myself winding down too and feeling sleepy and relaxed. As I rested memories of distant summer outdoor evening drifted in and out and made me feel calm and serene. I was too dreamy to start with the “connection” activity, so I just stayed in the moment feeling safe and supported.
My question is how to stop becoming what other people want me to be and to discover my true self. At this point the trees in the garden attracted me and I considered how they grow individually giving each other space, each apparently respecting the other. I realized that sometimes I have to get my own space, even if I have to remove myself for a while and take it, so I can re-discover what it means to be me. The hard part of this is not to feel guilty for doing it…
I did the activity several times. In the beginning of my walking after gaining permission, I rubbed my head and threw away all the negative stories that should be recycled. When I did that I immediately felt a relief and felt more energetic and happy.
As I started to walk around my village - thoughts of stories that I have about myself came up. I realized that during many years since childhood I used to believe stories about me that say "You are not OK. You behave wrong. You don't deserve to be loved." These stories apply mainly to my relationships in the closest family, with my parents as a child, and today with my husband.
As I continued to walk, I realized that my "true self" is OK, not perfect of course, but very lovable. Again, I felt the unconditional acceptance that I find in nature and reminded myself that I have it also inside my own true nature.
Today, as I walked I was attracted to small beautiful white flowers that I haven't seen before. They were growing on the trail side. It's interesting that they suddenly appear when most other flowers were done blossoming. I was also attracted to several other bushes and trees that still had flowers. Busy bees of different types were moving from flower to flower to eat and collect pollen. I stood very close and could see the small collection sacks on their legs full of orange and yellow powder.
Nature gave me a feeling that life goes on. Everything is busy with living, continuing processes of blossoming, giving fruits, growing leaves, drying and falling down to the earth.
My experience in nature shows me that life in nature goes on. It is not "easy" or "difficult" life (like I sometimes label my life). Life is just what it is. Then, I can relax and see my life in a more natural perspective. This gives me a feeling of acceptance and unconditional love, a feeling that everything is OK with me and that I'm lovable. It reminds me to "throw" away all the stories that dominate my relationships and my attitude towards myself, and reconnect to "real life" and my true nature.FIELD REPORT: an on line program participant, shares her results from a nature-connecting activity.
