Last evening, at the top of the stairs leading down to the clubhouse of my condo complex, I stopped and looked out over the tall trees nearby and the Santa Monica mountains in the distance as the sun was setting. It turned the sky into a profusion of color and I was filled with wonder at God’s creation. I breathed in deeply, appreciating my good fortune in living where I live – in nature, but close enough to civilization to be able to take part in the activities important to me. Everything we need to live healthy lives is found in nature and our own bodies. Our amazing immune systems are the only things that can heal us from disease. That’s how we were created. Out where I live, people hike, bicycle and walk their dogs breathing freely – oxygen in and carbon dioxide out, cleansing our lungs and our bodies. Whenever I have to drive into civilization, I am saddened to see all of the people who are covering their mouths and noses breathing in carbon dioxide over and over again. I believe that they’re choosing to harm their bodies not only because they are consuming 24/7 propaganda but because they have lost touch with God, with nature, and their own bodies. I wish I could take them all to a nearby mountain top and share with them the beauty of the Pacific Ocean and all the beauty that is only a few miles away from where they live. I would ask them to take time to close their eyes, shut out the noise of the their everyday problems and the endless chatter on the media, listen to their inner voice, and find the truth. It can be done. Wherever people are, they can meditate, find peace, take off their masks, and breathe.
