My experience in nature shows me that I am a person who gets good feelings... from the exhilaration of breathing in fresh, clean air. I have always been very attracted to places where I feel like I can really breathe.
I went jogging in the crisp Spring air, and paid attention to the air circulating in my lungs and back out into the world around me. i felt very connected to, and part of, the earth. It was almost a meditation-melting into my surroundings, and very centering and calming and cleansing. The word that came to mind, even more than attraction, was connection.
I am grateful for this experience, and the feeling is something that i can recreate whenever i need to. I have put this important knowledge into my sacred space. In reading through others' responses I was particularly attracted to (identified with) stories of the sounds of rushing water, the cycles of the ocean, and fading boundaries between one's self and other natural inhabitants.
A REACTION: I will treasure the sense of ancientness I felt as a result of this activity - it was like I could sense my lineage all the way back into antiquity!
