I am the wilderness because the wilderness is me.

The wilderness mirrors the different archetypes of a human being. Where life is like a river that is simple yet alters rapidly through the challenges of its climate. I have seen great strength in humans equivalent to a tree, a place that reminds us all that being grounded is in our soil and that choosing life means extending our roots – while branching out the leaves that reciprocate abundance and prosperity. I have seen rocks become great leaders of promoting stillness the way that allows humans to be resilient when there is so much wisdom in remaining mute and not feel the need to react. I have seen mountains. Just like humans survive the hottest summer and coldest winter, the feeling of the unknown, that allows a human to define their own reality. A parallel universe that only a human mind could create such separation with nature – a home to those that awaken to the reflection of all that they’re created from.
