06-29-14 – Sunday – I need to go out and Play

placid-852x480 “I need to go out and play”
Another Sunday morning and it seems to be one of those mornings that I don’t feel like working out. I will push myself through chest exercises and as always give it all I got. The weather has been rainy so far this weekend and I am hoping it clears up as I really need to be out in the sunshine.

I love my home and it is wonderful to be here, but it is just one of the many worlds that I live in. I also have a work world and what I call the outside world. This is the world where I find the most joy amongst the tall trees climbing up to the sky, the thousands of shades of green all around me with the background of a blue sky. A world where the only sounds you hear are those of rushing water in a crystal clear stream rushing down from the roar of a might waterfall, and the birds singing peacefully brushed by the winds blowing the leaves of the trees above.

This is life in balance as nature intended it to be. The seasons of the year guide all of this beauty and has been this way since the dawn of time here on our lovely planet. This is the world of purity, a world where only truth be told. A world where strength and adaptability are the survivors of many a challenge.

The world of nature can be cruel at times and yet so beautiful at others. Sitting in it’s presence reminds me that I too am a part of this world. It reminds me that the other worlds that I live in like home and work are really just illusions that are created by the incredible intelligence of man. They are but shelter and a way to exchange energy for money to purchase those things I need for my own survival. They are not too distant a cousin from dwelling in a cave and raising livestock, or growing vegetables, things we did so long ago. Of course we have managed to fine tune these worlds into that of comfort and protection, but yes, they are still basically the same. And the true world around us has not changed. The same sun continues to shine and the rain still falls from clouds above. And at night it is the same moon that man gazed upon millions of years ago.

I suppose this is my way of telling the world that I need to go out and play.
