Look at a tree, a flower, a plant. Let your awareness rest upon it. How still they are, how deeply rooted in Being. Allow nature to teach you stillness.
If you walk through nature with quiet foot falls, wildlife will draw ever closer.
Birds will land close by. Deer may not run. Rabbits will sit and stare.
By sitting still in a garden or woodland area, nature sounds amplify. No matter what season, if engaged, nature sounds cut through the silence.
It took some time to photograph the two crows who come daily to drink from the water out front. I watched the duo excitedly for many days, and as I moved to lift the camera they would fly away.
Maintaining our stillness, magic is often found as animals draw near.
