This is Real

If you can feel the earth beneath your feet, the mud, the soil, the stones, the grass, that’s real.

And if you can smell the earth beneath your feet, the leaves that have fallen from the trees above to give nourishment to the forest, then you will feel real.

If you can feel the water running through your fingers as it makes its way down the path of the river, that’s real.

And if you can smell the water as it flows over rocks to meet the mud, the soil, the grass along the shore, then you will feel real.

If you can feel the wind that bites your face as your breath meets the chilled autumn air, then raise your face towards the sky and give thanks.

This is real.
