Nature In The City: Brisbane's Botanical Garden






(short video below)





As I walk in the city and the garden, I feel comfortable. Living in a city could be possible.  Interesting to watch the individual's darting about and know that each has a story and a place in the fabric. Gratitude for the inner shift that is allowing the new state of inner equilibrium with the newness every day. Australia is clean, orderly, friendly, plentiful, and welcoming. What an amazing opportunity to be a student of human life.

Daintree Rainforest, Australia




Morning jog on the Port Douglas beach.  What a breathtaking view to start the day!

Off to the oldest rainforest in the world, Daintree Rainforest.  To hear the words of passion from the marine biologist at the Great Barrier Reef and now the tour guide of the rainforest--the natural jewels of the planet and the challenges to preserve them.  Overpopulation and greed are impending stress factors.

While walking in the rainforest and snorkeling in the sea, I had extended moments of wanting to be absorbed into a deep inner place that I have become aware of through my time in the ashram.  Soon enough I tell myself, but the time of walking in nature is stunning and filled with gratitude.
