 Sounds

In the wilderness, without the consistent destructive hum of ambient noise, sounds are amplified to the point where they become life; a life within the center of a moment. Once while sleeping in a tent in the Yosemite Valley, John Muir heard the ache and groan of the earth, the sound of a rumble shouting through the ground. Then, as though the world had awoken from a deep sleep, the earth began to shake.  Muir, running from his tent stood amongst the granite, and the tall woods bending and snapping screaming, “O Glorious Quake!” He was not afraid, and he rejoiced with nature. The brook sang its tune as branches snapped and swayed; the ground danced its reveille, and Muir shouted with joy. Why did he cherish nature’s sounds as words, and why do we cower at the thought of nature making itself known? Could it be that he had submitted his personal will to nature’s glory, and we try with all our might to subordinate nature to our will?

What do nature’s pure sounds say to you, and how would you respond?

Impermanence

In the wilderness stars come to life with clouds of radiance shining brightly above our heads. Stars light the sky beyond the horizon reflecting agelessness, returning night after night a beacon of permanence. Stars in the night sky were here long before us. Before humankind could grunt an emotion, these same stars looked upon our evolution. Name a person in history and we can say with assurance that we in our century share a common witness. Stars, however, have a life span…and who’s to say that the light we think we share is merely a reflection of a star long dead sharing it’s memory of life through the timelessness of space; the impermanence of reality, the permanence we think we know might rest in the unknown.

How does impermanence walk with the spirit, and what does it say?

Thirst

In the wilderness physical wants and needs becomes heightened and present. In the wilderness the simple act of drinking water makes one realize that thirst is a lurking reality. Quenching a thirst feeds the body, and maintains life. But what about the other kind of thirst found within an inner being, and emerging spirit? Is there an ever present thirst attached to personal relationships, work, house and home? Is there a thirst attached to a dream from long ago yet unfulfilled? Is there a nagging thirst hiding in the back of the mind waiting for nourishment to make it grow? Where is this inner thirst, and can it be defined?

In the wilderness it is time to discover the core of thirst, and claim its discovery.

– Denial –

In the wilderness living in a state of denial can be fraught with danger and can be life threatening. Is this not so in the reality of the populated world, too? Denial prevents us from accepting what is in favor of what we wish something to be. Denial can come into play within interpersonal relationships, our health, our life’s work, and the depth of our spiritual being as well. Denial is not hope, as hope has its roots in the reality of what actually is. Denial manifests when we are unable to accept reality blocking truth with a gnawing sense of fear.

In the wilderness, what areas of denial continue to choke your life, and well-being?
