rainforest entering me the quiet

We enter the forest but it also enters us. It is like a big cathedral inside us. The silence is big too. It is so personal.

Ah yes, I've been to a few rain forests, including pocket rain forests, and one I helped to start too, a wonderful opportunity.

Beautiful construction Patricia. The Gestault shifts between the different readings provide a sense of disorientation not unlike entering a rainforest and stepping off the path.
But my preferred reading is in 4 breaths, 4 steps. That way for me it indeed feels like a sacred act, entering a cathedral. Peace and transcendence.
What a wonderful start to my day. Thank you.
A great sense of awe is evoked here. Love it!
