Einstein once said “The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He (she) to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his (her) eyes are closed.”
This is what I strive to add, if only in a small way, to my daily life…as I make my way using the tools I have to practice, visualize, eat, smell, feel and be with and in it.
The purpose of this page is to have a sounding board to share. I chose the title ‘The Natural Path’ because I see nature as an inspiring tool. Living in the natural flow of ‘our’ paths we express during life is to be in a study of self-observation; learning to arrive from a place that feels natural, not forcing but first asking what the mirroring through others and our surroundings is revealing. As Rachelle, I am currently part of the female collective, representing the energy of receptivity and creation. It is a ‘place’ to share and connect with our traditions, culture and communities with empathy, unity, and expression through the senses.
I often have visualized this ‘place’ as a kitchen. It is an essential part of our daily life, whether we consciously know it or actively receive and contribute…we must eat and drink to sustain ourselves. I see food and drink beyond what we are served or what sits on our plates or occupies space in our bodies and refrigerators. I see food and beverage as a vibrant energetic extension of nature, a living memory that can restructure who we are and how we experience this existence. Through food and drink we have a link to communicating with mother earth, the ultimate feminine form. Observing how we can incorporate and align ourselves with ‘her’, we are after all interconnected.
