Listen to the Night

"If you listen close at night, you will hear the creatures of the dark, all of them sacred - the owls, the crickets, the frogs, the night birds - and you will hear beautiful songs, songs you have never heard before. Listen with your heart. Never stop listening."
--Henery Quick Bear, LAKOTA
The night time is full of life, full of song, and full of beauty. Have you ever gone outside at night and listened? One has access to serenity and peace. At night all our senses change their roles. Because we can't see, our hearing is much stronger, our smell is even more enhanced, our sight is different. We are able to join nature through sounds and smells, through the songs of the night birds, and through the night winds. We can close our eyes and experience interconnectedness in a different way. Try it tonight and experience oneness with the Creator.

What a beautiful meditation. I love the night...the dark is soothing to my migraine and all my senses are heighted by both. I yearn for the Vermont spring peepers all winter and anxiously await their song. I sit on the deck off my bedroom and soak in the sounds and smells from the pond and forest surrounding me. It doesn't seem overwhelming but brings me peace and comfort from my pain. My heart is at ease when I connect with Nature and All My Relations. Thank you for sharing this lovely post.
