Natural meditation

Natural meditation is familiar to us all. When as kids we used to lie in the grass on our back and stare up at the clouds and the sky, losing ourselves, forgetting ourselves, we experienced and learned many things -- whether or not we were conscious of it. Or looking at the ocean's waves, listening to a waterfall, or staring at a candle flame, a blazing fire in the hearth, or a bonfire -- dissolving in the natural elemental energy of fire, water, wind, and being washed or burnt away while being transported far beyond our limited selves. This is the principle of natural meditation. It is not at all foreign to us. These are also some of the simple, practical essentials of nature mysticism.
