Grow With Me

Go, Hurry, Hurry
Go, Hurry, Hurry
This is the mantra
You help me to release.

Stop, Slow, Slow
Stop, Slow, Slow
This is the mantra
You share with me.

Be quiet. Be still.
Listen. Be in silence.
Communicate without words.
Communicate from the divine heart.

Watch me. Learn with me.
Lean on me.
Ask of me assistance.
Grow with me.
We have much to learn
from one another.

Let us be the
Connected ones
We came here to BE.
Let us share divine love
In our own unique ways.

By the Shine of the Moon and Beautiful and Peaceful and Loving

May 3 2017:

Thomas and I had an extremely rough night last night with addressing one another’s thorns and triggers. This was after those life lessons …

Playing in the sprinklers by the shine of the moon last night with Thomas. Mother Nature is an incredible gift to us.

Much needed. So grateful to Mother Nature!

Walking is Dancing by Camilla Downs

Vintage Lake Walk Sunshine Trail Tree Summer 2016

Walking is Dancing

“Walking is spiritual.
Walking is magical.
Walking is miraculous.
Walking is praying.
Walking is meditation.
Walking awakens one from the deep sleep of separation.
Walking is dancing with the oneness of all that is.”
~2016 Camilla Downs – Author, Lessons from Nature

The Harmony of Nature by Camilla Downs

Pink and Purple Flowers Damonte Ranch Summer 2016

“The world slows
Time nearly stops
And I see.
I see your differences
I see the contrast.
I see what you impart.
You shine light
Upon the harmony of nature
So that I may see the
Oneness of nature and
The oneness of humanity
I am held in your loving
Embrace to have the all of all
Poured into my open heart.
And I say, yes, I see and
I will share and shine the light.” -2016 Camilla Downs – Author, Lessons from Nature

Winter Wonderland ….. Again! When I saw the first tree in these pictures, my only thought was, “I must have a picture.” I blindly walked over to it, oblivious that I was walking on a slope …. and, weeeeeeee, down I went smack on my bottom and back! I laughed so hard! Laughing alone in the quiet of snow …. Priceless and Magical … xoxo ….
