After a time look for an old tree and do the same....... I promise just being in the presence of an old tree you will feel calmer and it does seem like your thoughts have more wisdom and somehow go deeper.
Try it and see.
I think the trees are like our deep ancestors. They have seen more and heard more than we will ever know. Take some time today and learn from the trees. Start a relationship with an Elder of the earth.
I would love to hear how you get on with this little exercise.
