Sometimes a peaceful evening is all that needs to soothe and calm our inner state. If we follow the rhythm of nature we will also be balanced. There’s a time for everything. Times for activity and times for relaxation and rest. We need balance and if we are in tune with the balance of nature we will find the same harmony and peace within ourselves.
With the practice of stone balancing I have begun to appreciate nature in a new way. I have always loved nature but the relationship you get with it becomes very strong with this practice. It’s a kind of meditation. A yoga (meaning connection) with nature. You are so concentrated and feel it so deeply. You feel so alive and realize that you are part of it too. The essence of nature is not only working through the miracle of life and our world but also through the miracle of us and our own self.
In the summer of 2015 I learned the art of balancing stones. I loved it and since the day I learned the basics I have continued doing it. It’s a very special experience. It connects you with nature and brings a kind of fulfillment on a deep level. It’s very soothing and peaceful. It shifts your state of consciousness. It silences the thinking mind and takes you closer to what really matters – life itself. You feel the aliveness and presence. You feel the harmony and balance of nature. You hold it in your hands and it spreads throughout your being. When you slowly release your hands and witness the creation you can see what you have felt.
Here are some of my very first stone balances.
