MacLaine, Shirley - The calming effect of Mother Nature
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
I'm Over All That and Other Confessions - Shirley MacLaine
I find that if I go out into Mother Nature, I calm down. She has a rhythm that has outlasted all else-even what we do to her. I try to take on her rhythm. It's more calm and understanding. I try to melt away from the pot-boiling present by enveloping myself with the sounds and sweet movement of the trees and clouds and insects and animals around me. They know what is happening, and they are prepared to be patient and wait. It’s as though all life around me understands the flow of time except for we humans.
