“Awareness within your surroundings makes you appreciate more all the Beauty that Nature, Earth and the Universe provides” Angelique Mol
How much attention do you give to your surroundings? What details do you see? Do small details trigger you to put even more attention to it?
Over the years I learned to Appreciate and Respect all that Nature, Earth and the Universe provides. Once I became more and more aware of my surroundings I actually felt in Love with the Beauty of All.
When I see trees, flowers, plants and even animals I see So much more than just the “subject” on its own. I see the small details in flowers and plants and often so intrigued by how it is created and how beautiful it actually is. With animals for example I don’t Just see the animal, I see the small details, their fluffy fur, the way they move, how they behave….
I am Very Grateful for this Awareness as I can remember when I was younger and not so Aware as what I am now, all was just “normal”, an animal was just an animal, a flower just a flower, a plant just a plant…..but never really saw the Details and the Beauty in it.
This awareness is also a part of Mindfulness, and Mindfulness is the ability to look Closer and Deeper than what is only just in front of you…..looking Beyond the Veil. And not just with Nature and Animals, but also towards Your Self and other People, Humanity in its whole, even Colours are more beautiful
When I see a real poor person on the street, I don’t see Just a beggar who’s asking for food or money, I see another Soul who’s probably on a tough Journey, and by looking at a person in that way it makes a person So much more interesting. But also you are able to See Love in the other person and Respect.
It makes me wonder what kind of Journey the person is on and why. Is it because the person needs to Learn something from the situation he’s in or maybe that person is there to show Me or teach Me a lesson? Maybe I am challenged in my Judgement about that person, so do I Judge or do I Respect?
I learned to Respect people more and not to Judge, as you never know what Path the other person is on, what is going on in his Life or how difficult his Journey maybe is. When I became more able to practice this I also realized that it became more easy to send out Love to people, as I let them Be, for Who they are and Not for What they have or Don’t have or for What they Do or Don’t do.
And it makes things So much less complicated and easy to deal with. The even more great thing about Awareness is that people start to See and Recognize that you are non-judgmental and so I receive Much respect and love in return. How Wonderful is that?!
Also I See and Hear more things that happen around me, even small little things, like the sound of the wind that slides through the leaves of a bush when I pass it, many different kind of tjirping sounds of birds, a movement in the corner of my eye which might be a squirrel, rabbit or a bird….I get triggered as I am more Aware.
This is one of the Best development within my Spirituality and I am very Grateful for this. And the beauty about it is, once you Are Aware and Mindful, you can’t lose it anymore.
Earth is Beautiful with All she provides and the Universe provides us with the Skills once we are ready and open for it. Why wouldn’t you be Grateful?
Enjoy your Surroundings, have a Closer look and take in the Pure Beauty of it All.
