When I wander in nature, I sometimes see signs…not the Keep Off the Grass kind of signs, but what I believe are signals from the natural world.
Just lately I've noticed that when a squirrel looks at me, he puts his paw over his heart. Curious behavior…I’m guessing there’s some physiological reason, but perhaps there’s a deeper meaning.
I suspect that it’s a message of love from the Earth. And it’s a message for all of us. Not the fleeting kind of love, but that deep, unconditional, forever and always love that is Divine.
The kind of love that you don’t need to earn, or ever fear losing.
What an incredible gift…to know we’re completely loved and accepted for exactly who we are in each moment, no matter what.
As I watched the squirrel, I found myself putting my hand over my heart, returning his expression of love.
And in deep gratitude, I smiled...
