(Continued from Crystalline Flow 2) Looking Glass Falls is a 50 foot sheer drop located roadside just north of Brevard NC and though you’ll probably never have it to yourself, it’s still a beautiful site to spend some time.

Hind sight is twenty-twenty, they say and looking back I get a sense that I came to that place in life where I took pause to ask myself, “Who are my real friends, anyway.” It was a wise man who once suggested that I figure out the five friends most important to me, because together their influence shapes my life into what it is to me. It’s interesting that as I stood in the foreground taking this image of Looking Glass Falls, I was able to ‘see’ my reflection in the water – not a visual refection but more like a gut impression of who it was looking back at me.

I have to ask myself, do I hold precious those friends of mine who care enough to tell me the truth when I don’t seem to want to see it for myself? It can be challenging to sit at a waterfall’s feet and really feel what she has to say. It’s like looking into the eyes of a fawn; there’s nothing but love looking back at me, and that can be strangely disconcerting to bear….at least this is what I’ve found. I’ve found that receiving true love is feeling completely loved and this can contradict a lot of misconceptions hiding away beneath my awareness. I have to confess my surprise at realizing that I wasn’t very comfortable initially with feeling nurtured and supported. It wasn’t what I was accustomed to. The first few times I touched into the feeling of being loved in this way, I couldn’t stay there. I severed the connection like someone jerking a hand out of flames, afraid to feel. But I kept going back to the waterfalls letting them love me harder than I could resent myself. I’m grateful now for the guidance I found there in nature that insisted upon reflecting another view of me until I could bear to see it.

Now as I take a moment to peer into these waterfall images; I sometimes let my imagination break free of the guiding force of my mind; I relax into the ebb and flow of my breathing as I listen to the water falling. I can almost feel the cool air bathed in cleansing mist as I breathe it in; I sink deeper into my seat and my spirit takes root deep into the heart of the earth as branches of light extend into the heavens; I focus my awareness within the center of my chest and let it fill and expand with light from the waters of my breath. And I’m there again experiencing myself new and renewed at the feet of waterfalls (continued with Crystalline Flow 4).
