We are all here to live every situation you can imagine, good or bad; right or wrong; positive or negative. Why? So we can learn from the experience as part of the adventure of life. Murray Kibblewhite
CASE STUDY – HOW TO APPRECIATE WHAT YOU HAVE SUBJECT : Beliefs
It is 3,32am and I am laying in my bed awake after a toilet stop. Clearly and close by I can hear the “Or Pork” call of the Morpork bird calling to another. After a series of calls he stopped and I hear the quiet reply from another in the distance.
Yesterday, was a magic Spring day, clear fine and warm in the sun. Perfect weather. And as I laid in my bed early in the morning, I listened to the various birds in the “Dawn Chorus”, thrushes, blackbirds, grey warbler.tui’s and more. All calling – telling the world they are awake and ready.
The apartment I live in is well-sited to receive the sun all day. The lounge where I work is always warm and has little need for a heater during winter.
Out the window to the East I look directly into the branches of the attractive “Bottle Brush” tree with its many red flowers of circular shape.
Then on the West side of the apartment I look intoa group of magnificent “Magnolia” trees with their large shinny leaves, green on top and bronze underneath with beautiful large creamy- white flowers on display most of the year.
Finally, on another morning as I lay in my bed just before I prepared to get up and just before the sound of the nearby traffic drown out the natural sounds, I could hear many cows mooing. It is an unusual experience to hear farm animals in a large city. Later that day, I walked through nearby Cornwall Park, in the centre of Auckland, and I could clearly see a large number of cows and their calves, the source of the sounds I had heard earlier.
All the sounds of nature are there to hear, if you only listen.
