All we need to do to receive that richness is to take the time to be present to nature and commune with the Earth. Here are some tips:
Tree People has generous hiking and nature trails.
Huntington Botanical Gardens reminds of earth's natural beauty.
Practice your yoga outside, at a park or near the beach.
Be in touch with the beauty that surrounds you all the time.
Get grounded by laying down and getting close to the grass while gazing up at the beautiful sky!
Remember that everything that is truly valuable cannot be bought, and cannot be taken from you. It is up to you to cultivate that glorious relationship to your mother earth. Creating security and having ownership is supported by our concept of value and the action of putting away a little bit each day. Re-creation on a daily basis is like money in the bank; it adds up over time. Your strength and flexibility is a cumulative result of your daily practice. Own your power. Claim the richness of your birthright which is your beautiful body.
