The world looks different from the woods. It just does. I am able to hear myself more clearly, to see things more clearly. It is easy and pure. I am in closer connection with myself, my truth, my "signal." It is integrity, and wholeness.
And then, I return to the "real world." And it is cluttered by other peoples values and judgements. This is "noise."
I return to the woods, over and over, to connect with my signal, my holiness, my truth. Where the signal is strongest.
This blog is personal, it contains the secrets in my heart. And, the truest test I can meet is this: are my words true in the woods? Because if the words are true in the woods, where my signal is strongest, then they are my deepest truth. If it is true in my body in the woods, then it is true - no matter what the world may say about them.
