Yesterday, I put you to the saw, sawed you limb from limb and cut your trunk to six inch slices. Today, I axed those slices, soft as cheese, splitting them along the clean fine grain. Alien, they call you but you grow fast and well with aphids for the wrens and pollen for the bees. […]Sycamore — Johnthebarman’s Blog

The purpose of the couple next to you in the movie line-up, the guy selling you the popcorn – his manager – the manager’s dad – the manager’s dad’s dentist – the dentist’s dog’s veterinarian are all permeated with the same human stamp: To love and Be Loved. A sincere want to be the receiver of someone else’s need to love. To, in return, have the opportunity to love them back.

To the Nature Spirits of the little waves on the pebbly beach …
… with your little breaking waves that curl quick and complete. As the curl runs out of water to draw up from below the small curl crashes in miniature on the shore. Tickling the pebbles as it slides up the shore and gurgles back into the lake.
The clear water bathing the pebbles highlights all the mineral specks and streaks, iron red and carbon black, the shiny and dark and sparkling.
Again and once again. Slightly bigger little waves when the wind picks up.
You live on the compact curl and crash of the undulating lake. You thrive in the soothing tickle and gurgle of water among the pebbles.
You are buoyed by their constancy and float on the spontaneity of each new little wave.
Your style permeating those waves pulls in my gaze so I try to locate your magnetic magic – I never do. But I do end up rediscovering rejuvenating peace, getting cleansed by your soft yet exact presence.
To the Nature Spirits of the little waves on the pebbly beach – Thank you.
Thank you for adhering to your nature.
What in the world do Nature Spirits have to do with the education of a man so he is a totem pole of warmth and protection for his spouse?
Nature Spirits are always and everywhere connected to their nature and the moment and their purpose. Imagine if a man could say the same.
How does a man connect with his nature, elevate in the moment, adhere to their purpose?
A few thoughts …
What are Nature Spirits. Nature Spirits are the religious life of planet Earth. The spirits of the wilderness are the abundant energy that resonates from the spinning earth. They are natural and are integral in your well being in various ways. In every life. If you have a soul you are an anchor for nature spirits. That makes you important to nature. That means you are appreciated by nature. Nature being planet Earth. Your home. Your power source.
If you’re unfamiliar with the concept of a soul. Or you as a soul bearing being – that’s ok.
Read these words slowly. Know that you have a soul; that you inhabit a planetary soul. That your soul registers the energy of nature spirits. When at peace anyone can sense this energy. When we get stuff done in our day we generate Satisfaction. Satisfaction is the foundation for peace. So the homework of connecting with nature is being good at your Satisfaction to be able to offer to others and nature a man at peace.
What the Nature Spirits need to know is the real you. They can mesh with the you of now. Not the Ego based needy version of some guy. What they seek is the you that loves responding to the call for a man. To do and to be. Not that the man knows everything. Far from it. They love the imperfect man that wants to grow. That accepts his faults because his human qualities are a better reflection of who he is. Highlighting his strengths is a better investment than correcting his faults.
It is crucial that a man understand he is wanted. Wanted by his family. Wanted by the powers of religion. Moved by religion. Animated by a relevant power to push into the world. To surge into the day. The amazing matrix with which a man can do all this everyday is the soul.
The soul is the amplifier of your passion, your emotion, your belief. Yours. No one else’s.
It simply cannot provide soul service to another body. Because you and your soul are intricately, beautifully and fatality intertwined. No body can decide for you the relationship you as an adult have with your soul.
Without a doubt you have programming from your childhood that impacts your decision making whether they are good habits or traumatizing events. Now you are an adult and you decide your habits, routines and rituals. Let’s say habits are more for the Ego, routines for your Best
Ego and Rituals for your Devotional life – the Higher Soul.
All three of these use your history that lives in your blood and your resonance from your bones as a source of power. Power to connect with nature and higher perception. Power to project rejuvenating energy to someone else. Power to keep learning how to use your Best Ego to help get your Satisfaction that generates peace to welcome healing Nature Spirits into your life.
Connect, Elevate, Adhere.
Go Man Go.
