A Kiss in Consciousness

Updated: Nov 14, 2021

Some of my favorite moments in meditation are those when it seems as if a story is unfolding before my eyes and I am an observer of the unfolding, able to think about, judge, and question what I’m witnessing all at the same time. In this evening’s meditation, a brief but beautiful unfolding occurs.

I am sitting alongside my dad’s hospital bed in the living room and he seems unable to look at me. I see his body clearly yet his face is sort of blurry. I’m watching him struggle to turn to look at me and I observe that he is trying so hard to bring his eyes through and make his face clear. It seems to take all of his strength but he is committed and not giving up. Eventually I do see him turn and look at me, although unable to see his eyes, I clearly see his skin and every detail down to the individual whiskers on his unshaven face. Somehow I know that he wants to kiss my cheek. I reach out and turn my cheek toward him (mentally but also physically in my meditation), and he gives me the quickest kiss on the cheek and then lies back, completely and utterly exhausted, as if he had just lifted the heaviest weights in the world. Although he looks as though he has not an ounce of energy left for anything, he cheers a little and yells, “I did it, I did it!” I hear this in his actual voice. He is completely depleted but happy. The smile on my face is priceless.

Nature defined: The natural forces that control what happen in the world; A creative and controlling force in the universe; An inner force or the sum of such forces in an individual; The external world in its entirety.

Nature's Way is beautiful. Read on and be inspired by the journey. The way is through the heart.

About my Nature's Way journey 


On Nov 1, 2020, my dad moved from this world to the next. He was a fun-loving man who always could have a good laugh under any circumstance (he laughed his way through his final days), an avid outdoorsman and lover of nature, and he was known for his physical strength and bravery, not to mention his voice. He was my perfectly imperfect Dad. In a way, his death was a two year journey experienced together that continues. Twelve hours before my dad passed away, I experienced an inexplicable force of nature while holding his hand. 

After he passed, Dad began to use nature to open me up to a greater reality, helped me to understand my true nature, and is leading me to walk through life filled with love, joy, and peace, unafraid to speak my truth.

I like to say that Dad was led home, and me open. Open to Divine love, full presence to life, and connecting to those in the world just beyond ours. From beyond the veil, my dad has led me on a completely unexpected transformational journey to my inner Light, and I share that journey here.
