Dorothy, everything you share in this meditation is wonderful! Perhaps, I am blessed with having more than one sanctuary. Whether I am on the shores of a South Pacific island, or in the forests of the Pacific Northwest and Alaska, I am home. One with nature. One with God. I share with you this thought: when I am in the sanctuary of forest or ocean, I have been given “Permission” to enter. Nature says “You are home. Yet be attentive to your surroundings. You will enjoy, as long as you are alert.l Thank You, Dorothy!
