Currently this is my morning meditation. Peaceful footsteps through the countryside with a sleeping baby strapped to my front.
The more time I spend in nature the more deeply I wish to sink into it.
The more I distance myself from the rat race the less I am able to understand it.
When I flick through platforms such as this I question my contribution to it. Feeling somewhat estranged from the life I previously placed so much importance on.
For now it is a form of connection. Connection with those I don't see often, family on other continents, my people...but there is no denying my preference for connection on an earth level, with real flesh, blood and bone.
I feel fortunate to have been given the opportunity to step off the treadmill for a bit and focus on something completely different. To create different practices and rituals. To connect with my daughter. To nature.
I am grateful.
For these mornings.
