My Thoughts as I walked Today.

 

Today, I walked, I needed to just get out of my own four walls and breath in some air, Lots of thoughts, changes and thinking have I been doing recently, so I just needed to clear my mind.. and so what better way to walk ..

So today I packed a rucksack put my hiking boots into my car and headed for a spot I know.. I didn’t take my camera with me as it has recently broken, but I didn’t need a camera to help me remember today..

 

“Here I sit upon a hilltop overlooking Forests of green pines for as far as the eye can see. Just me, the Earth and the Sky.. Not even bird song is on this hilltop for the trees along with the birds stretch far below me..

I look to my left and marvel at the heather, so vibrant in colour, I watch the tall grasses gently sway with the warm breeze, as I breath in the clear air as I look at the many meadow flowers growing in front of me.. A small white butterfly joins me for a short while to drink from some clover, and I look out to the horizon and something catches my eye,.. I watch and smile as I see a Sparrow Hawk twist and turn on the thermals to stop in mid flight and hover only to see it switch direction and dive to hover over another place as it looks for food way down below.. I lose sight of it as it dives yet again this time going below the tree line far below me. And I sit and ponder being the Sparrow Hawk for a few seconds, feeling that freedom of the wind beneath my wings as I float effortlessly in mid air as I glide on the wind..

My eyes lowered I look now at the grass, seeing the bee’s on the flowers and the insects flying around, and I am struck yet again by the silence of the place, and I breath in deeper still, giving thanks for my space on top of this hill..

I eat my sandwiches and take a sip of my water to find yet another Butterfly has joined me.. I look around and see many more.. as they flit among the heather..

My eyes gaze upwards to the clouds and I spend more time just absorbing the peacefulness and giving thanks for Mother Earth for this Day, and wonder at the vastness of the Universe beyond the clouds as I wonder what other planets with wonders we know nothing about are out there..

The silence is broken by a dog’s short bark, and I gaze down the path from where I sit, to see an oldish gentleman walking his two Jack Russell Dogs. I hold out my hand to greet the dogs as they come to sniff me out, at the same time saying “ Good morning” to the gentleman..

He corrects me by saying “ Good Afternoon” and I look at my watch which says 1pm and I say “you’re right, time flys when you are having Fun”. He says does he mind if he joins me for a while. ‘Only this Hill is getting steeper’ he says, ‘either that or my legs are getting shorter’ We laugh and I ask him his dogs names as they are now fussing around me, and I’m enjoying their company.. I move over from my perch on the stone, and he sits down beside me.. as he says, “ this is Kate, she’s the oldest and the most mischievous one,, can’t keep her nose to herself that one” as she is busy sniffing what’s in my rucksack.. “ And this is Mini she is the younger one and has manners”  ..

I pat his dogs and Mini jumps up beside me enjoying the fuss, as I stoke her ears,  I ask him had he walked far, as so is born a conversation that lasted for over an hour as we put the world to rights. I introduced myself and he introduced himself as Sid.. and we spoke on subjects of World Governments, To Disasters, to growing our own veggies to how we as a society have become strangers to one another as we no longer pull together as we no longer know our neighbours.. And we both came to the same conclusions, that is our societies have to change, that we live in suspicion of each other’s motives in a throw away world of greed and those who only think of themselves..We spoke on how such times as the heavy snow in our winter just past had brought to the fore that community spirit where neighbours helped each other out and how it was such a shame that it took disasters to bring about that bonding of helping each other.. when for most part we lived as strangers on the same street..  

The Dogs were panting and I share some of my water with them, using my lunch box as water bowl, they drank thirstily and I offered some to Sid, who gave his thanks, We carried on our conversation about the perception of age and he told me of his sequence dancing which kept him  young and mobile.. and how he dances  with his partner and ladies who are in their 80’s but who look 20 yrs younger.. and he said how he loved to dance and walk.. We swopped our stories of how we had known people to give in and give up and how age then seemed to claim them, We spoke on Mind over Matter and the healing we could all give ourselves by just being out in Nature..and how Will power could make you well again.. 

 At we at last said our goodbyes..both promising that if our paths should cross again we would acknowledge one another and he shook my hand saying it had been a pleasure..

I too got up from my resting place continuing along my journey. As I walked I opened my arms and fingers to the feel of the earth’s own pulsating energy as the gentle breeze washed over my fingers, I absorbed the energies of nature, the hills, and the sky, and I gave thanks for the sunshine and my encounter with Sid and his dogs Kate and Mini.. as I walked more butterflies flitted in front of me.. and to my astonishment my favourites of all.. I saw 4 Dragonflies, 2 large ones and 2 small… one hovered and darted above my head, as I grinned, and let out my oummmm sound as I sometimes do as I connect with the ALL in everything..  Grinning now even broader humming along to myself I walked down the hill..

For it truth be told, I had walked up that Hill today feeling kind of sad, alone within my world of thoughts as many things change around me.. But I knew too, that I was changing also like the dragonflies and butterflies…. transformation was coming.. .. My encounter today reaffirmed my faith in the Human Spirit, for there are many Sids of this world who quietly spread their own healing light, and I gave thanks for the gift he had left me today..

So Thank you …. for the Universe sent you to me today …

    Yes I read \’THE SECRET\’ and we all create with our thoughts pulling to us the energy we create,either positive or negative, If we realise we are all co-creators of our world, we will understand that ALL things are posible, and the POWER lies in our THOUGHTS!
