Listen to the Song of Nature

Listen to the Song of Nature

By Amba Gale

February 9 is the “echoing” day of my birth.

My husband and I gifted me with a journey to Muir’s Valley, Yosemite, now a Valley belonging to us all, where nature graces us with her beauty, her power, her wonder, her awesome, and the heart can sing with the rivers and the streams.

Today, instead of some prose, may I offer you a few Blessings, and the gifts of pleasure, enjoyment, and heart-song as you listen to my husband Don’s original Bluegrass song, Shadowline. Accompanied by our video, I invite you to delight with us in the shadows cast by the trees, the mountains, the boulders. Give yourself a pause, a Stop, as you listen to the song of nature. Enjoy the Great Merced as she rushes and wraps around her boulders, dancing in a loving caress, on her way home to the sea.

May your own journey be filled with warmth of the sun.
May your heart be filled with the delight of the music from the rivers
and streams of your life.
May you embrace and watch the play of light and shadow in its ever – changing forms as you journey through your life, on the way to your home.

May your day be gladdened by my husband’s song, from his recently released CD, “Looking Back, Looking In,” and the visuals of our wonderings through Yosemite.

 

 

Merced, on Birthday Morning

of all the rivers,
sunlight sparkling like jewels
on your robe of green,
glowing
with your laughter through my childhood,
sewing
all my younger days with gladness,
growing with me,
as I lean into life.

May I flow, like you,
Surprised, joyful, delighted
by the currents carrying me
to my own sea.

Let the Path Come to You

‘Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it.Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.’–Howard Thurman I love this quote, by Howard Thurman. I love it so much, I created an entire course out of it, a course called “The Joy of Being, Designing your Life.” The phrase, “The joy of being,” is a phrase that jumped out to me, right into my heart, as I read “The Good Earth” by Eckart Tolle, another wonderful master whose good work has served me so well, in behalf of living in…

Certainty in a Sea of Chaos

While the world wages wars and argumentativeness will, apparently, not cease, there is always this: The enduring truth of the poetic imagination. There, you are not lost.          —Amba Gale In a world that announces chaos, violence, and unpredictable events at every turn, we are not immune from being deeply affected, personally. The teachings of these times, often laden with grief, with loss, with heart brokenness, also lead us into new insights, new revelations, new resiliences. And, they lead us sometimes, to a necessity to face our own reluctance to let go of all we already know, including all of our plans.…
