The sanctuary of trees…

  
Where do you find your sanctuary? Your sacred place?

As in this Hermann Hesse quote, I find sanctuary in Nature… meditating in or walking through a forest grove, sitting at the ocean’s edge contemplating the sky and the water, strolling through a meadow. 

This morning, I found it sitting on our balcony listening to the blessed restorative sound of rain… Something that has been absent here in Vancouver BC for so many months.

We learn so much – and gain so much – when we connect with Nature.

“Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth. They do not preach learning and precepts, they preach, undeterred by particulars, the ancient law of life.”

― Hermann Hesse, “Wandering”
