How can we find magic when our nose is buried in a cell phone?
On my travels I have seen people screech to a stop at a scenic view lookout, take a quick shot with their cell phone, jump back in their car, and take off in a cloud of dust. I wonder if they will ever have time to look at those photos, and will they remember where they were taken. Or are they just to be posted on FB, Snap, or Instagram and quickly forgotten after a satisfactory number of likes…
Giving ourselves the gift of time to discover stillness inside us allows all worries to drop away, making space for a deep feeling of peace and contentment. A walk in the forest is free medication, guaranteed to lower all levels of stress. If it could be bottled, labelled and sold, pharmacies would reap billions! And who knows what little treasures we will find?
