Love is silent
Love is colorful
Love is gray
Love gives life
Love carries the
Seed of compassion.
For the open hearted
And for the ones
With closed hearts.
Love is always here
“It’s time to step into the flames of the fire. The time is now to connect with that which you fear from your past. The past no longer exists and cannot cause you harm. However, when it is avoided and sidestepped; it does indeed cause you harm.
This avoidance and sidestepping keeps you a prisoner of the past and held captive to a perceived smallness. As the flame grows, be still and know that you are not alone. Be still and know it cannot hurt you. It cannot consume you.
By bringing your light to the flames of the fire, it will be extinguished and transformed into the light of freedom.
The freedom to claim your power. The freedom to know who you are. The freedom to shine your light with others.
Be still. And Know.” – 2017, Camilla Downs, The Journal
“One with sun,
One with moon,
One with water,
One with trees,
One with soil,
One with wind,
One with birds and bees,
One with rain,
One with fire,
One with me,
One with all of life,
One with love.” ~2016 Camilla Downs, Lessons from Nature
“Nature knows not
Her beauty without us.
We know not
Our beauty, compassion,
And peace without her.”
Oh beautiful tree
The lessons thy impart to me
Open the heart to be free
Grateful to you
I will forever be.” Camilla Downs – Author, Lessons from Nature

“Grow where you are,
Lest you spend precious time
Waiting to grow
Until you arrive someplace else.
For when one reaches the
Someplace else, there will
Always be the next someplace else.
Grow as your heart desires
To allow without to miraculously
Support ones growth.” –Camilla Downs – Author, Lessons from Nature
This mornings Walk With Me message: Mindfulness …. These tiny little rain drops caught my eye. Great message tree and water. Thank you ….
The practice of mindfulness can be trying … releasing thoughts of the past and future and focusing our entire being into whatever it is we are doing in that moment … it can seem like an internal tug of war. Yet, with practice it gets easier.
“Trunks and branches growing in opposite directions,
all with different views. Yet, you are eternally at peace.
Oh tree. You inspire me.” ~Camilla Downs – Author
You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one …. With each day my heart fills with more and more and more love and peace …. Yet, the love and peace is to be uncovered within before it is discovered without … xoxoxo
