Adopt The Pace Of Nature – Her Secret Is Patience

Title Quote: Ralph Waldo Emerson

Nature’s secrets are incredibly inspiring and bountiful
Life lessons are learnt that are not taught in school
Walking in Mother Nature, God’s natural Kingdom
With Awareness, will bring you insightful wisdom

Her efflorescence beauty is shown everywhere
Even in the depth of winter when much lies bare
There’s always splendour and miracles to view
When with your Soul Eyes, you choose to look through

In winter when all the leaves fall from a tree
The intricate branches are visible for scrutiny
Extending onwards and upwards into the sky
As we expand our consciousness up so high

Then spring arrives to enliven and lighten our days
Nature manifests its perfection in numerous ways
Beautifully delicate, pure blossoms flourish for a while
Showing us to appreciate NOW, then let go with a smile

Summer bestows nature’s miraculous abundance
Flowers overwhelming beauty give more evidence
Of the variety of life, it’s shapes, colours and size
Everyone is just perfect in God’s All-Knowing Eyes

Summer turns to autumn, or as some say fall
Change is in the air and nature heeds the call
Leaves burst into colour, then wither and die
As do all human beings, including you and I

The cycle is complete, a year has come and gone
Nature will eternally repeat it’s wondrous song
Teaching us through Awareness, year after year
If we are Open to it’s wisdom and ready to hear

All this is provided at a sure and steady pace
Nature is perfect, there’s never a need to race
Everything is accomplished, in a time of her own
Nature’s secret is Patience, to us she has shown

About This Poem

As I have mentioned on some of my other posts, I was rather blind to the awesomeness of nature until I began to follow the teachings of Abraham-Hicks. I was awakened to its magnificence on a simple walk to get some photographs to use for quotes on my website (Spiritual Quotes To Live By) and have been amazed at the sights and lessons taught by nature ever since.

Letter From Your Newborn

Dear Mummy and Daddy,
No matter what happens between us, during my childhood I will love you unconditionally.

You are my guide, my support, my lifetime anchor…
for whatever becomes of me depends on our time together.

From you I will learn what love is. I will learn to be confident or shy, giving or selfish, loving or cruel.
I will learn what is right and wrong, who I should respect and whether I should love and respect myself.

As I come into this world, into your tender care, I am a pure, clean sponge. I will soak up every look, every touch, every thought, every word, every feeling and they will mould me into the person that I will become.

So in the days, weeks, months and years ahead – please remember that – every thought, feeling, word, touch, and look… I will absorb.

If you treat me with love, caring, respect, tolerance, forgiveness and understanding – even when I do things wrong – then I will grow up into a kind, considerate, confident, loving, responsible, happy child and adult.

But if you treat me with intolerance, uncaring, harshness, words of anger and neglect…
I will be… sad.

About This Poem

This was my first poem, apart from the words I wrote in 1993 (see: About This Blog). I wrote it the day my first grandchild was born on 22nd December 1997. I sat to write some words for the congratulations card to my son and his girlfriend, but instead these words just flowed out. I never gave it to them, but just filed it away! 

Back then I had not heard of the Law Of Attraction, so I was amazed many years later when I pulled it out and found I had been writing about it so long before. Also, in the past few years I have been reading the work of people like scientist Bruce Lipton who now teach that children do indeed absorb everything, with no filters, for the first six years.
