Camping as a Spiritual Retreat

It’s more than just a trip. The outdoors has plenty to offer:

beyond the scenic natural landscapes and well-nourished soil molded by a force more powerful than simply erosion,

the crashing cascade of water falling from atop a plateau, streaming down into the fresh water river,

willow trees extending its arms showing you can never overextend your welcome here,

then there’s the timid deer that trot about, wildlife is shy but nice when not provoked (our temperament isn’t so different. Don’t mess with me and I won’t mess with you),

then there’s the serenity of the grasshopper’s nocturnal symphony lulling you to deep sleep.

No need for curtains to shut off all that brightness from the street lights outside because we are underneath the tent now, it’s pitch black, with the moonlight providing comfort to us whom may still be afraid of the dark LOL.

There’s always that campfire you can have. The crackling sound of it is soothing, it mimics the percussion to go with the grasshopper’s orchestra. It all fits neatly into the perfect sleep sound so you can be sound asleep.

Camping provides you with the best sleep ever! You wake up the next day feeling refreshed, looking forward to the next day, wondering what adventure will we embark on. Most importantly, camping as a spiritual retreat is good for the soul. What do I mean by this?

For starters, camping puts us in an environment where we become more in tune with our senses, heightening our physical senses, eliminating all distractions, leaving you with your own mind, to not only be at peace, but to think deeply, to self-reflect, to connect with the infinite source of wisdom which is within us given by The Most High. We are spending time away from distractions of the world, away from the noise of the so-called matrix, that which extracts our energy into tasks that are merely meaningless, we lose our senses, our sense of self, and neglect knowledge of self to the point we not only forget who we are, but we stop seeking life-saving wisdom. Too busy creating a fake world, when the real world is already here, ready for our embrace, and camping is the closest thing to reconnecting with our roots in nature.

There’s a healing power behind nature sounds, here’s a blog regarding –> “the healing frequencies of sound.” Please do check it out if you haven’t already!
