The Gathering of Natures Wisdom

To see the world in a grain of sand, and to see heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of your hands, and eternity in an hour. William Blake

This piece is inspired by and therefore dedicated to the lovely Assayya of 'Gathering of Natures Wisdom'. My mind often wanders to wildflower meadows, saplings and the canopies of ancient magical trees with secrets untold. These places bestow me with natures gifts of beauty, wilderness, healing, inspiration and so much more.

After the stillbirth of my daughter I found peace in such places. They symbolised the resting place of my dearly missed daughter. The past few days however, since the missed-miscarraige of my 3rd pregnancy I had started to despair of such images, feeling almost resentful of their existence.

Assayya's posts reminded me of the healing powers and bountiful gifts of natures basket and snapped me out of my misdirected anger. Assayya reminded me of all that I love and hold dear about the very nature of nature. That is a more precious gift than anyone could knowingly give. I would like to thank you Assayya for your wonderful posts and sharing your magical insights.

Please visit Assayya at Gathering of Natures Wisdom for visual treats and a herbalist education. The blog is written in dutch but there is a google translator function on the top right hand corner that works quite well.

Hi Jasmine,

The beautiful artwork is full of life and it creates a positive feeling. I also love the Blake quote, humans and nature as a unity.
