Nature Mysticism (Dancing With The Sun) - Poem by Genova Maaa my mother

All veritable and first hand apprehensions
of the Divine obtained by the use of symbols
are activities of the illuminated mind.

To see God in nature, to attain a radiant
consciousness of the otherness
of natural things, is the simplest
and commonest form of illumination.

Those who experience an overpowering
apprehension of the infinite life
immanent in all living things
they live in „nature mysticism".

(Rudolf Otto defined nature mysticism as 'the sense of being immersed in the oneness of nature, so that man feels all the individuality, all the peculiarities of natural things in himself. He dances with the motes of dust and radiates with the sun; he rises with the dawn, surges with the wave, is fragrant with the rose, rapt with the nightingale: he knows and is all being, all strength, all joy, all desire, all pain in all things inseparably) '.

    Mysticism is known as becoming one with God or the Absolute, but may refer to any kind of ecstasy or altered state of consciousness which is given a religious or spiritual meaning. The experience of the nature mystics is of a different order and magnitude; bonding and blending with all things around them; feeling a sense of the Divine within the living world; the calm, joy and peace of Oneness with the eternal–union with the creator through his creation, and the knowing of the divine plan in all things. The feeling is one in which all of nature is felt within the self: sun, moon, forests, oceans, everything; although the more common event is the self merging with all of nature. Here one is joined in an exuberant union with trees, flowers, butterflies, everything living and moving. The feeling of immortality takes hold, and death no longer seems of any consequence; the dance and flow of life are divine and eternal. One now becomes aware of a creation that finds expression in living things.
    Those who experience an in depth understanding of infinite life within all living creation live in 'nature mysticism'.
    The mystical philosophy of dancing with Mother Nature is exquisitely penned in this beautiful poem, dearest Tonyyyyy. The joy of realising that we are not just a part of the universe, but that we ARE the universe is a unique feeling known to the nature mystic. It is a feeling of completeness, wholeness and inclusiveness.
    A very powerful, inspiriting and refreshing write, with an excellent choice of graphic to complement the ecstasy of the the joy found in nature mysticism. The graphic paints that joy for the reader to get a glimpse of the power of being united as one with all of nature.
    Kudos, with applause, dearest Tonyyyyy. Outstanding work! Gratitude for sharing...
