I Am A River

Published August 16, 2020 by tindertender

Like a river I am gentle and calm with “seasons” (situations) of roaring flow that can destroy.

I spent two hours floating in the natural mineral waters of GAIA. Floating, stirring the hot waters with the cool waters. I tipped my head back and let the water cover my eyes, and I floated there, senses calm and still, receiving much needed love and acceptance from the natural world.

Someone constructed this fantastic art! I hope it remains for a time, and that if it falls over it will not land on anyone. (They left their beer can).

After a couple hours I headed back toward town for breakfast. I was so relaxed, a little smile upon my face. I was so grateful for the many blessings I had received while enjoying nature’s warm bath.

I decided not to go all the way home. Instead I went to another location and sat on the waters edge for a few more hours.

As the roots of the tree equal it’s branches, so do our inner worlds match the outer.

Balance …

While relaxing in this space a young boy walked into the center of this shallow part of the river with his mother, and with her assistance he climbed the biggest rock in the water. He shouted, “Dad! Look! I’m king of the world!”

I laughed heartily. And then I cried. I had to go into the river and splash water in my hair and my face to disguise my emotion. He was so precious! I stated softly, “Yes my boy, you ARE king of the world.”

Even now, many hours later, my eyes leak at his excited, innocent proclamation.

On my trip back home, I sang songs to GAIA and the elementals of the forest, of the waters, of all life which surrounded me. I sang sweetly to them as I used to do as a young lady, wandering in the forest day to day.

Here are a couple video compilations from the day. I am so grateful for the many blessings I have received.
