It seems that nature is in all things. As I walk my path.....mundane and spiritual....I turn my eyes to nature instinct. I have observed that when my eyes and mind are open to receiving I learn the most. So, yeah, we observe the trees, the sun, the moon, the waxing and waning of daylight hours, the temperature ec. where my focus as been for a few weeks now has been on my back porch. More to the point....oh.....well....let me start at the beginning.
Last year we were blessed to have some birds choose to build a nest in the corner of our covered porch. It was amazing to watch them find The materials needed to make a safe place to lay their eggs and nurture the young. The nest was home to two sets of baby birds. After the last set left my handsome waited about a month to see if other birds would use the nest. When it wasn’t used he removed it. It was sad and yet such a blessin. Blessed to have had the experience. But, we though it was one and done.
so this year, we were once again blessed with birds building a nest, I like to think they are the same birds if not the young that were born here. Again, two rounds of birds. We are currently blessed with the second round. This time there were 5 babies. Such a beautiful thing. To watch as the parents sit in the nest, to watching and wondering if you are seeing little beaks popping up or is that wishful seeing? To actually seeing the beaks, then seemingly overnight they are big enough to leave the nest.
Each morning at go out and say good morning to them and then proceed with my day. Sunday was no differen! My day consists of an event to share my store with others. As I work the event I received a txt from my handsome telling me that two of the baby birds have flown the nest. As excited as I was for him to have witnessed this amazing event that only happens once for these birds, I was sad to have missed says goodbye.
When I returned home one of the first things I did was to go out and tell the birds that remained how amazing they were! The next morning all three were still there! Determined to see them leave I set up camp in my livingroom with clear view of them. It wasn’t long before something caught my attention and I looked away for just a couple of minutes. When I looked back, another baby had already flown the nest. I MISSED IT! Well, the last two have been under close observation since! And they are amazing!
so, why share this? As I have watched them I noticed a number of amazing things!
1) Love is the Law! It governs all things, it is translatable in all things. It was there as the nest was prepared, as the babies hatche, grew and left. It is in me as I get to be A part of their world, in my husband as he observes, and all around us.
2) we get to choose what we focus on. Although our attention may be drawn elsewher, we still have the choice in how we see it. I got to be so happy that my handsome was witness to the first two leaving the nest and hope to see it myself. I got to be excited for the birds that had flown. I get to choose to see the love in the adult birds coming back again and again to take care of those still in the nest.
3) we are each different and this makes us speciaL. It was two full days ago that the first birds left. There are still two birds Here. I watch as they spread their wings, take a little lift off the nest and see that they can do it! Then return to the nest. They are taking the time they need to develop and nurture themselves. They are allowing themselves the time they need to be ready for what comes next. They are allowing themselves to be nurtured. They are allowing themselves the time they need to see their own magic and the magic in all that is around them.
4) these birds have shown me that it is ok to try. It’s ok to take a bit of time to believe in yoursel, then to fly! There is a very special magic within each of us. In order for us to access it we have to be open to nurturing it, developing it and then spreading our wings and flying.
in Perfect Love and Perfect Trust, I can’t wait to see you spread your wings and take flight! ❤️In Love❤️
