The Magic of Nature, the Magic of God and Me

A while ago I had a revelation…. about the magic of nature and the magic of God.

I had taken a client to an appointment and was sitting in the waiting room. As I sat there waiting for her, I saw a picture on the wall of willow trees hanging over and into the water on either side of a river. It reminded me of my grandparents’ farm on the Shoalhaven River and how behind the island, which was part of their farm, the willows used to hang over the water. As the water flowed by, the lower leaves would glide across the water and you could see the shingles on the bottom, as the water was so crystal clear. The sunlight used to sparkle on the water and I remembered how much I always wanted to go into the water because it was so beautiful.

I remembered I had that same feeling each time I was in nature – wanting to walk into it, be under that majestic tree, paddle my feet in the water, somehow absorb what I felt it was emanating.

I realised I had been looking for what I could feel was there but was not able to capture because I was looking at the beauty, harmony and magic of nature as something I couldn’t attain – as something separate and outside of me.

But then I realised that what I was seeing and feeling as something outside of myself I can feel in me also – that same beauty, harmony and magic of nature resides in me and it is as beautiful as are the trees and rivers, and I don’t have to look outside of myself to try and capture a fleeting feeling when I can feel it all the time with me and in me.

Because everything that is in nature is in me also.

Now that was an amazing revelation to me and so next time that I am with nature I know there won’t be that longing of wanting it to give me something since I now know that I am part of the magic of nature – which also means I am part of the magic of God – and I can bring equally to it what it brings to me.

I would like to express my heartfelt appreciation to Serge Benhayon – who walks the talk of the love and joy he is with everyone equally.

  1. “The same beauty, harmony and magic of nature resides within me.” I can now appreciate these words so much more than I did a few years ago when I felt lost and disconnected with myself and used nature to feel better never realising that in this disconnection I was not able to connect to the awareness that these qualities are a reflection of the qualities within us all.

  2. It is a revelation to understand the impulse of nature lives within us as well. It offers the impetus to explore that we can be with the stillness naturally within us, even in the midst of a man made creation such as the heart of a big city, where we can otherwise feel quite isolated from nature. Holding our connection to that impulse means we are offering to all those willing to connect with it around us. And listening and speaking from it is always understood.

  3. The first half of your sharing… filled with such appreciation of the beauty in nature down to the finest detail, was just stunning to experience in my body. I too have felt this and yet also forget that nature reflects to us the beauty we too possess and don’t embrace. What a beautiful reminder to look within and deeply appreciate how gorgeous we are.

  4. Beautiful blog to read Deidre, I felt the same as you when in nature, a oneness and a connection to its magic, little did I know back then that the beauty and grandeur I felt in nature, that was being reflected, was within me, for me to experience and appreciate me.

  5. To me it is important that I am consciously aware that “that same beauty, harmony and magic of nature resides in me,” that I am part of it and not someone who just walks through it like in a set of a movie or play. No I am undeniable part of it and that is what nature reflects to me every day.

  6. The more I reconnect back to my true essence the more I feel in the flow of life and thus nature. I feel the constant reflections that I am being blessed with and they act as a beautiful confirmation of my return to love.

  7. I echo your heartfelt appreciation of Serge Benhayon who so palpably demonstrates in his every movement how it is possible to live in harmony with nature and reflect this so inspirationally to all.

  8. Beautiful Deidre. When we know ourselves as Sons of God we have the realization that we are so much more than who we thought we were.

  9. A beautiful realisation Deidre, when we connect to the beauty, harmony, and magic of nature we feel the same beauty, harmony, and magic within us also. With this deep connection to our essence there is no need to look outside ourselves for anything.

  10. “Now that was an amazing revelation to me and so next time that I am with nature I know there won’t be that longing of wanting it to give me something since I now know that I am part of the magic of nature – which also means I am part of the magic of God – and I can bring equally to it what it brings to me.” I remember a picture like this one in my own home. The feelings I felt for it were so exquisite. I never realised that it was a reflection of me and my beauty within.

  11. I love this, of course we are in our essence as beautiful and as harmonious as everything in nature and in every way a part of the magic of God. The issue is that we have forgotten our essences and live from false essences instead. Reminding our essence is an amazing experience and much simpler than one might imagine.

  12. I totally agree Deidre, it’s important that we appreciate nature but not think that it can provide or give us anything that we do not already possess. It is there to confirm what we already know, to relay messages, to guide us home and to reflect the love and beauty from which we are inside.

  13. Deidre, reading your lovely blog I am remembering how not that long ago how I would walk down to my local river in the hope of seeing a kingfisher to confirm whether I was feeling joy or not…that was until one day I thought how crazy is that, looking for the confirmation of joy outside myself when all I have to do is stop and feel my own body and I will have the answer.

    1. Love your comment Elizabeth, I have played that game too, being led by my head and not allowing myself to simply feel from inside my body.

  14. “which also means I am part of the magic of God – and I can bring equally to it what it brings to me.” Reading this blog and in particular this line sums up what I want to become more aware of. That I am part of that grander whole, we call nature, the universe or God and that how I relate to that is not only of benefit for myself but for all of humanity, our planet earth and to the universe. No limits if we connect to that grander whole we belong to compared to living my life in the illusion that that three dimensional world I experience every day is my word and are the boundaries to live in.

  15. A beautiful realisation Deidre, so confirming to read, I would feel very connected to nature and would feel its wonder and magic never knowing at that time that magician wonder was a part of who I am and we are also.

  16. Yes, nature reflects us the divinity we are equally but rarely are connected with, so never is it about losing ourselves in the marvel of the magic of nature but much more find ourselves again.

  17. I wonder how much the longing to be in nature is simply the longing to feel being in the magic of God, feeling to be part of the whole that beholds us. Nature gives us a beautiful reflection and reminder of this belonging we can so easily lack feeling when being engaged with life the way we have life made to be normal. Important to understand that nature is a reflection that offers us to come back to what is inside instead of escaping into nature to just get a momentary relieve from the stresses of life.

  18. When I’m wanting to dive into and immerse myself in nature, it’s because I’m craving that sense of stillness and spaciousness that it constantly is and emanates. Building my connection to these sensations within myself takes away that craving and neediness, so that being in nature becomes a confirmation and reflection of what I’m already feeling, rather than an escape from the tension and anxiety. What I’m also starting to feel is that tension and anxiety are more surface level than I ever thought: when I connect more deeply to the stillness I can feel within, there is not one part of me that feels anxious.

  19. Great point Deirdre. Our choices and our beliefs are powerful and if we believe we are separate from nature then this is what we will experience. The beauty in nature is to me a reflection for us all of the beauty in us – there is no separation or disconnection in truth.

  20. When we connect to the harmony, beauty and stillness reflected in nature we feel this quality of being equally within ourselves and the realisation that there is so much more to connect to when we open up our awareness.

  21. Beautiful revelation Deidre. We are continuously offered our own divine reflection, what an incredible feeling it is when we realise we hold all that beauty within.

  22. Thank you Deidre for a beautiful sharing, I have always loved nature but I could not hold the beauty harmony and magic once I left it, not knowing at that time that what I felt in nature was also in me. Now I know I am part of the bigger picture of the Magic of God within us, and everywhere.

  23. I love the way you took me back to my youth and reminded me how natural it was to be part of nature and then another beautiful reminder that this has not changed “because everything that is in nature is in me also.”

  24. We as a society are taught and conditioned from a young age to look outside of ourselves to define or discover who we are. Yet as you have discovered, and as have I, that who and what we are within far exceeds any happiness or fleeting sense of pleasure. As when we connect to our light within, we discover our majesty is forever waiting to be lived and that we are forever held in the oneness of God’s love. We are all connected to all within our Universe and beyond, and we are reminded and confirmed daily by the magic of nature that surrounds us, that through the light of our love is how our majesty is lived together.

  25. Nature is always offering beautiful reflections that continually expand us and inspire us, choosing to live in a way that allows this to be the ‘norm’ is a joyful and powerful experience that is deeply rewarding in many ways.

  26. When we feel this equality with Nature there is no separation between us and it. There is a natural flow and we are able to feel the Beauty that resides in us, that is us. Walking in Nature confirms this Oneness that in our daily round we can move away from thus losing the Harmony that is innately ours.

  27. Beautiful to feel your appreciation of yourself Deidre. When we are connected with our essence we equally feel the interconnectedness naturally with everything around us.

  28. I love how simple and yet so powerful your words are about your realisation. A clear message that we are equal to nature and how its reflection supports us to embrace and appreciate the grandness, the divinity that lives within us all.

  29. ‘Because everything that is in nature is in us also,’ – this is an amazing statement. We are all part of everything, our particles come from the universe. So of course this is true. Thankyou for sharing Deirdre.

  30. Nature is a gorgeous gift. Whenever I feel lost to myself and out of sync with life, nature is the perfect haven, reminding me of the love, order, harmony and cycles that is also the truth of my own nature and essence.
    At other times when I already feel the love, light and power that runs through me, the reflection of nature is simply that, a great reminder of the vastness I already know I am equal to and part of.

  31. What you share is so true Deidre, the beauty and magic of nature is a direct reflection of the beauty and magic of God.

  32. Yes, I am in full agreement with you Deidre – I also offer to a deep appreciation of and to Serge Benhayon.There are no words that are grand enough to convey this.
    “I would like to express my heartfelt appreciation to Serge Benhayon – who walks the talk of the love and joy he is with everyone equally”.

  33. Nature is truly beautiful, I often have a sense of wonder and awe about the clouds, birds, plants and animals I see. It wasn’t until I came to the work of Serge Benhayon that I could even consider that I was beautiful on the inside, that my essence was magical and gorgeous and very much a part of the wonder of the Universe. Great to be reminded that the beauty of nature is simply a reflection of all we come from and are truly.

  34. I have that same love for nature too- a feeling of expansion and timelessness and sometimes you meet people in life who you also get this same feeling with- a quality lived of surrender and sacredness which emanates out for others to enjoy.

  35. Knowing we are a part of the Magic of nature and God brings the realisation of our interconnectedness as a whole and that there is a way to live with the same harmony and beauty that we feel when we walk with nature.

  36. If you can see a sunrise or a tree branch floating in the breeze and feel the wonder of what is there, then that wonder must also be within you, or you would not appreciate what you are seeing. God speaks to us in many ways, and we have an opportunity to confirm within that we feel what is offered.

  37. I have never heard anyone besides Serge and now the student body, present on the fact that we are equal to everything, including nature, that no thing, no beauty, no mystical crystal, place or plant can ever compare to the kingdom of heaven inside our hearts. This blog is a conformation that all though we can admire nature its true purpose is to reflect that which we are already.

  38. Beautifully shared Deidre, thank you, I have always loved the feeling I had when I was in nature, this was my go to place for nurture, but I now know that that feeling of nurture I can give to myself because I carry it with me. Knowing the magic that nature holds is also within me.

  39. ‘Which also means I am part of the magic of God – and I can bring equally to it what it brings to me’. This is a beautiful line of equality Deidre, claiming the divinity that resides within.
