“It is not required that we know all of the details about every stretch of the river. Indeed, were we to know, it would not be an adventure, and I wonder if there would be much point in the journey.”
Jeffrey R. Anderson
“When we allow the walls around our hearts to become rigid, and stay that way, we assign ourselves a slow death. Like the very air and water that flows through our physical body to sustain it, love must flow through our heart to keep it supple, and to keep us truly alive.”
Jeffrey R. Anderson, The Nature of Things - Navigating Everyday Life with Grace
“When spring knocks at your door, regardless of the time of year or season of our lives, run, do not walk to that door, throw it open with wild abandon, and say, "Yes! Yes, come in! Do me, and do me big!”
Jeffrey R. Anderson, The Nature of Things - Navigating Everyday Life with Grace
“Look to your heart and soul first, rather than looking to your head first, when choosing. Rather than what you think, consider instead how you feel. Look to the nature of things. Feel your choices and decisions. It just might change everything.”
Jeffrey R. Anderson, The Nature of Things - Navigating Everyday Life with Grace
“The wave is the signature of every experience of life. By understanding the nature of waves and their characteristics, and applying that understanding to our lives, we can navigate life with a little more grace.”
Jeffrey R. Anderson, The Nature of Things - Navigating Everyday Life with Grace
“We often think that there is just one way to look at things - the way we always have. In fact, there are an infinite number of ways to look at most everything. An open mind allows for a multitude of perspectives from which to choose in any given moment. That suppleness of mind allows for true choice, and opens us to a whole new realm of possibility.”
Jeffrey R. Anderson, The Nature of Things - Navigating Everyday Life with Grace
“We trust nature to know what it is doing, but we are not nearly so kind, understanding and trusting of our own rhythms and cycles. It's ridiculous that we are so hard on ourselves. Can we not trust that the very same forces that created the rhythms and cycles of nature created our own? Of course we can. We often don't, but we can, if we remember.”
Jeffrey R. Anderson, The Nature of Things - Navigating Everyday Life with Grace
“The river is one of my favorite metaphors, the symbol of the great flow of Life Itself. The river begins at Source, and returns to Source, unerringly. This happens every single time, without exception. We are no different.”
Jeffrey R. Anderson, The Nature of Things - Navigating Everyday Life with Grace
“From a spiritual perspective, each individual heart is a place where Divine love is expressed and experienced. That's what it's designed for. That love shows up in an unlimited number of shapes and sizes, colors and flavors. We are here to love, as big and as fearlessly as we possibly can.”
Jeffrey R. Anderson, The Nature of Things - Navigating Everyday Life with Grace
“In nature everything is connected, interwoven, subject to natural law. We cannot separate ourselves from that, no matter how hard we try.”
Jeffrey R. Anderson, The Nature of Things - Navigating Everyday Life with Grace
“The question is not whether or not change and challenge are going to happen. They are. The question is, when they do happen, how are we going to choose to look at them, contextualize them, and navigate them?”
Jeffrey R. Anderson, The Nature of Things - Navigating Everyday Life with Grace
“When I feel clumsy or lost, I remind myself that nature, including me, was created by a a far wiser mind than mine. There is something in the cosmos - God, Spirit, Consciousness, Life Itself, call It what you will - that created and orchestrates nature, and did a pretty good job of it. Nature might just know what It's doing. Even when I don't.”
Jeffrey R. Anderson, The Nature of Things - Navigating Everyday Life with Grace
“Certainly there is life and there is death, but even in death, if we look closely enough, we will find grace.”
Jeffrey R. Anderson, The Nature of Things - Navigating Everyday Life with Grace
“By looking to the Source, to the Creator of nature, we can remember how to navigate life organically, with less struggle, and less suffering.”
Jeffrey R. Anderson, The Nature of Things - Navigating Everyday Life with Grace
“We have another chance to navigate, perhaps in a slightly different way than we did yesterday. We cannot go back. But we can learn.”
Jeffrey R. Anderson, The Nature of Things - Navigating Everyday Life with Grace
“God is not only something metaphysical, but also the physical world, the plants and animals, the mountains and rivers, the air and the sun and the earth.”
Jeffrey R. Anderson
“We are, as a culture and as a specias, in the midst of a great awakening, remembering that there is a nature of things, an inherent, Divine design. The more aware of and in alignment with that design we can become, the more we will experience the deep desires of our hearts and souls, and perhaps, together, we can truly create a world that works for everyone.”
Jeffrey R. Anderson, The Nature of Things - Navigating Everyday Life with Grace
“In my thinking, the nature of things, the nature of God if you will, must be common to all.”
Jeffrey R. Anderson, The Nature of Things - Navigating Everyday Life with Grace
“The sun shines on all and all alike, It's not surprising that we feel good when we immerse ourselves in nature.”
Jeffrey R. Anderson, The Nature of Things - Navigating Everyday Life with Grace
“Surely there is a knowing behind it all. There is a teacher, an expresser, a creator, an artist perhaps, a poet certainly that has designed and presented all of the clues that we need to navigate life with some degree of grace, and perhaps with a greater degree of happiness than we now have.”
