Today, we have a note from Simeon, a student in Intuition University’s small group training, currently visiting the forests of Italy.
I had wanted to share a lot of things with you but one of my great weak points is that I don’t keep a diary or journal of events. Consequently I have forgotten a lot of episodes I wanted to share with you. Some of those I remember might seem irrelevant but I can assure you that they have made me become more conscious of how the Divine works to my favor and consequently helps me live in gratitude much more than I have ever done in my life.
Since I moved away from my former location (Rome) to my present one, where I am immersed in the forest and removed from easy contact with people, I can tell you that I have come to appreciate a lot of things. I have grown in my awareness of the Universe and nature in which we all live. For instance, over the last six months I have need to go into the forest on a daily basis, in the company of others, in search of wood for heating and baking.
Gradually I began noticing that each time we went in search of wood and somebody cuts a small plant around to make it easier to reach the plant we want to cut for wood, I felt bad about it. Gradually I began protecting these small plants from indiscriminate and unnecessary cuttings. You can’t imagine how good I felt each time I was able to save one of them. Gradually I began chatting with them in my mind.
My awareness continued growing to the extent that I even began apologizing to them for the harm we are doing to them. I was growing in my awareness about even the wild flowers around and each time I went into the forest, I was always watching carefully not to step unnecessarily on them. I could stop and gaze at their beauty especially when I was alone in the forest.”
Simeon, walking the path of the Saint, is having enormous growth in his ability to connect with nature: to feel it, to be with it, to have compassion with it.
When you can hear the plants speak to you, and you feel yourself speaking back to them, you have opened another door in your awareness.
