A barefoot walk on the rocks.

The title has no metaphor, exactly what I mean, and as long as there’s no thorn invading my sole (foot), I totally love it. I recently visited a waterfall and what a beautiful experience. That peace and that sound of the waterfall which makes you realise it is ultimately the Nature which is superior and not the human, a human rather is a part of Nature and not the sovereign.

A major request, please don’t litter the places you visit. It hurts so much to see all those plastic garbage blocking the stream, littered on the rocks.

A barefoot walk is also good for your health as much as I have heard, helps in blood circulation probably. It makes you feel the oneness with Nature, makes you realise you are a part of it. Of course for many it would be a ‘Does it even matter?’. It probably does. I hope we spend more time outside our concrete walls, mud huts with their few inconveniences still give a feeling of closeness to earth which these 20 storey tall buildings we have built for ourselves never give.

If you are reading this, just pause and think of the last time you saw a sunset or a sunrise, as I am writing this I too am planning to see the next sunset. Give some time, just a few minutes to that experience. We don’t always need to make a visit to somewhere to feel close to Nature. Even in this concrete jungle around us we can make our moments. We can make our moments in the pristine beauty we couldn’t save and we can try to save and respect all that we are left with. It’s not just about joining a protest to stop deforestation, we can put our small efforts along with that, not wasting electricity, saving water, reuse, buying fruits and vegetables from vendors and so much more.

I know this is what we always hear, many of us follow, but how about becoming a little more serious towards it. Enjoy your time and respect and love nature.

    Most of my life I’ve walked barefoot outdoors. Just recently I discovered that grounding by walking with bare feet on the ground is a very healthy thing for the body.

    Oh, and as children, my little sister and I walked everywhere barefoot. I always joke that I got my first pair of shoes when I was ten, and we went back to Europe for a while. 😉 👞

    Agree totally. Plastic is a disease. I spent a good bit of my childhood in ahouse right by the sea. Just a few yards away. No plastic then. On january 2020, before the whole current affair, we rented a house on the beach in Yucatan. neaches were nice but littered with bits and bits of plastic. There are tons floating in the pacific and elsewhere. “Ban plastic”!

    1. Such beautiful memories. It’s so sad why we see destruction as development. Wish we had a more sustainable pace of change.

        It’s probably just a matter of putting a $ sign on plastic waste.

    I just hit upon your site, serendipitously as it were, while taking that occasional cyber walk. Barefoot, on the sands, on rocks and other surfaces of nature is therapeutic and nurturing, because that is what precisely happens, nature’s nurturing. We are all part of it and there is no existence outside it. Do keep your offerings going, Mrinalini. Best wishes…

    Yes, if everyone were just a little more serious about it, what a difference it could make. Not to mention, as you have so well, experiencing a sunrise or sunset in peace.

    The earth
    The life
    is exploited by us
    regardless
    on loss
    and destruction

    I don’t know the many
    i can myself
    not really quite realize it

    everything i get from nature
    take change

    i am nature
    there remains a residue
    of spoiled things
    from myself
    will stay

  13. No one can walk here on barefoot. It is a tough way for travellers. Nevertheless, the thrust of natural elegance makes one positive to cross this way. I am also a seeker of a nature lover. Almost, all the time I feel to go out for a long travel. But, business hinders us to go abroad.

  14. Yes, I believe we are strongly connected with nature in comparison with the busy of the city…traffic & all that. Save electricity, reuse and buying products from street vendors I am essential steps we should take to save the mother earth. Thank you so much for sharing.

    Looks like a great place to walk barefoot. I’ve always been more comfortable in nature. Here in the US, unfortunately much of the liter is masks left lying on the ground.
