As I finished my time at Nymphenburg palace and the grounds, I have a very peaceful feeling.
There is something amazing about just being out in nature that is so calming.
Last night I came home after it was dark. I was disturbed by many things that were happening and that I was hearing. I raised my head to God saying “I don’t get it. I just don’t get it. None of this makes sense. What the hell is going on in the world?”
And that’s when I looked up and saw the sky. It was a dark clear sky. I could see stars. The wind was still, so that meant I could hear what was going on around me. I heard the neighing of a horse nearby. I hear birds chirping. And I also heard nothing. It was glorious. And it in that moment that I realize that being out there at that moment was the only thing that actually made sense in the world at that time. It was enough to center me and bring me back to my senses.
Sometimes being out in nature can feel holy. It felt that way last night, but also when I was on the grounds of Nymphenburg.
