Get Into the Forest Again

The forest is a sanctuary, a temple of contemplation, connection and peace.   Serenity surrounds with a warm cohesiveness – an encasing womb.  Comfort, meditation, life expressing itself, all waiting for our immersion.  Honest and raw.  Inviting and absorbing.  A sweet embrace.

When you can, get into the forest again!

Deer & Woods“When we get out of the glass bottle of our ego and when we escape like the squirrels in the cage of our personality and get into the forest again, we shall shiver with cold and fright. But things happen to us so that we don’t know ourselves. Cool unlying life will rush in.”

D.H. Lawrence

“We must not always talk in the market-place                                  of what Little Tree, Bright Greenshappens to us in the forest.”

-Nathaniel Hawthorne




“A forest bird never wants a cage.”

-Henrik Ibsen


“When the oak is felled the whole forest echoes with its fall, but a hundred acorns are sown in silence by an unnoticed breeze.”

-Thomas Carlyle
