Iconic scenery of Palm Valley Central Australia
The outback wilderness meets the aspirations within each one of us to rediscover ourselves.
It offers an immersion in silence conducive to beautiful personal thoughts, vital decisions, a clarity of ideas and values.
Indigenous communities have spent 50,000 yrs or more living in physical and spiritual harmony with the Australian landscape – in touch with rhythms of the natural world.
Mother Theresa once said “harmony is not found in noise or restlessness – for nature grows in silence”.
Here’s a starting point
Look outside the city limits to get a true sense of self – essentially to look inside.
In the wilderness you can release yourself to a greater power which is timeless and universal – a value greater than yourself, comfortable, humbling.
Discover everything in life can change and has done so for millions of years – but there remains a deeper sense of enduring.
Naturalists will attest to the immersive, restorative power of nature, just by being there.
What you can do
Quieten your mind by sitting on a rock or log somewhere far from mankind’s built environments and distractions.
Tune into the present moment and you within that moment. A consciousness stripped of any wandering or intruding thoughts, analysis, evaluation or judgement.
Indulge in the company of new sensations – freshness carried on a whispering breeze, a shaft of light washing over the furrowed bark, an inquisitive bird dropping by, insect conversations echoing from the forest canopy, ripples ringing from the meandering brook.
Awesome sightings will draw your attention away from yourself and the daily “baggage” your mind carries.
Nature is always “here and now”, always fresh, never past or future.
Choose a sweet spot you can call your own. Visit it regularly, for meditation, mindfulness in nature.
Relax in the simplicity of the moment.
Wilderness therapy is one solution and it’s free.
Do you want to reconnect with real life in a virtual age?
Is it time to reignite all your senses?
Nature is not just “out there” but constantly cycling through you.
To live life fully, you have to be present in it. The present moment is the only time you are alive.
