I Love living in the Southwest, The state of Arizona to be exact. I was born in New Jersey, grew up and graduated in New York State. New York and New Jersey have many great things but for me it is clearly living in Az that brings me the most Joy.
The Desert, is it for me. I love living in Sedona. I love all of AZ.
The diversity of plant life, insects, animals, canyons and mountains all add to the amazing landscape of this incredible state. The scent of the landscape is so amazing, it fills the senses with so much. The Cactus, when in bloom remind me of feathers dusters and the scent is delicious. The Pine trees and the rosemary, God, I do love the scent, the canyons and the diversity of the land. Head down to Pheonix on SR 17 and there pops up the Saguaro’s in all their glory. Amazing……The deep canyons and the surrounding mountains, breath taking.
For Me, the land of Sedona with the valleys, the deep canyons and the jutting moutains along with the red rocks is balanced. I believe that is why so many of us come here to live and then leave after a short time.
The desert to me, is way more then what it appears to be, this is a spiritual journey as well. Sedona is not an easy place to live, keep in mind if you chose to live here, Sedona will open it’s heart to you, If not, you will not be able to stay. You will either do the work here or leave, you may return a few times or never return, none-the-less this Place will propel you into healing at some point in your life, because that is what happens. You can take what is offered and continue healing elsewhere, It is always your choice. I was here 3 times before I knew I was finally able to stay. To live and share my life in this community. I truly love it here, all of Arizona.
Forgive all, especially yourself and allow GOD back in. Be free of the burdens you believe you carry and return to Innocence and Joy. I am and have dedicated myself to returning as Good created me, in his likeness. I pray you have as well. I know we all will….
Love to all my Bothers and Sisters. Journey well. Freedom and Joy is your Divine Right.
