Rachel Dickson reciting "The Beauty of a Tree."

Throughout history, trees have filled us with wonder and sparked our imaginations.
And it's little wonder. Trees are good for the soul. They’re essential to the air we breathe. And they provide a majestic example of strength and perseverance in the face of adversity.

It's shear joy for me to recite this poem by Gabby Mac 60 titled, "The beauty of a tree." 
 
I found this poem online and I couldn't find any information on who exactly Gabby Mac 60 really is...but if you find this post Gabby or anyone who may know her does...please reach out. I'd love to talk with you about this incredible verse about all things trees!

Rachel Dickson reciting the poem "The Guest House" by Rumi.

The poem "The Guest House" by Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi explores the concept of embracing life's ups and downs as valuable experiences. It teaches to welcome all emotions, even the negative ones, as opportunities for growth.

I've been exploring what it means to be human, specifically when it comes to the parts of us that have experienced hurt and harm and how to forgive ourselves and others. How to discover again what our whole selves feels like ...what being home in ourselves feels like.
 
I chose to read this poem by Rumi to allow to sink in the concept of embracing ALL of the parts of ourselves as the being human experience.

Rachel Dickson reading an excerpt from "Stillness Speaks" by Eckhart Tolle.

I've been a student of Eckhart Tolle for many years. He has been the cause of some very important shifts in my beliefs around what matters and the value of this moment...the now. He also has some wonderful insights to bestow in his book titled, "Stillness Speaks."

Here I read an excerpt this book...this explains the connections between nature and us and being.

I've been moved by nature in ways words cannot describe. Nature is my greatest teacher in how to BE and how to survive and how to THRIVE.
Eckhart Tolle says this best in "Stillness Speaks."
