Among the many travelers and historians who observed and wrote about the barrenness of the Land of Israel was the great American writer Mark Twain. Even the olive tree and the cactus, those fast friends of a worthless soil, had almost deserted the country.

That was just years ago. Shortly afterwards, the first wave of Jews began to return, and the modern Zionist enterprise was born.
The land that these early Jewish pioneers faced was harsh to say the least. The coastal plains were swampy and malarial, as was the Jordan valley. The Samarian and Judean hills were rocky and barren. Even in the Galilee, many places were completely denuded and practically barren of life. Half the country was desert. The hardy Jewish pioneers who came back in those early days gave over their lives to bringing a land and a nation back to life. They drained the swamps and replaced them with citrus orchards.
They, and the waves of Jews who followed, made the desert blossom with every kind of fruit, vegetable, and flower. In the process, the Jews invented innovative agricultural technologies that are now being used around the world to make other places blossom and grow. The Land of Israel has come back to life, and whole world is now increasingly enriched as a result.see url

Israel is the only country in the world that had more trees at the end of the 20th Century than at the beginning. Everywhere you turn, you now see productive farms, fields and orchards and thriving villages, towns, and cities. We exited the warmth of our sleeping bags and cozy tent to gather with other visitors who had come here from around the world. Standing upon the rocky cliff side we all awaited the first light. The tears started to roll down my cheeks. Indeed, this is the most beautiful sight I had ever seen. There are endless possibilities of magnificently beautiful moments of awe and delight…so long as we remember to look for them.
Learning that the purpose of life is to fulfil our potential rang true in the very core of my being. Self-actualization can take many forms such as through creative expression, spiritual quests, scholarly research, or acts of giving that enhance our world. At its most basic level, self-actualization is about self-discovery to who we really are and were always meant to be. The inability to fulfil our potential or express our gifts is a recipe for depression. However, Maslow compassionately reminded us that we often cannot turn our attention toward self-actualization until we feel safe and secure with our basic needs such as having food, shelter, and financial security.
Often, we need support to help us transform our suffering into growth or to transition from surviving to thriving. Nonetheless, there are times when the human capacity to embody our potential can transcend situation, time, or place. Sometimes, even in the midst of challenging life events we wake up to Self and begin to fulfil a quest towards a greater good. No matter where we are in life, I like to think that we are here to lift each other up and to assist each other to bring our unique gifts into fruition for the benefit or others and the world.

Most importantly, self-actualization is not about being better than someone else and it is not about being perfect. It is about being true to yourself—honestly and authentically you. The Japanese offer the practice of Shinrin-yoku, translated as forest bathing. They believe that time in nature improves our physical, emotional, and social well-being. Approach this practice like a walking mediation; an invitation to awaken all of your senses.
Maybe you begin to notice the breeze on your skin, some deer grazing, the buds of flowers on the trees, or the filtered quality of light as it passes through branches. The next time you step outdoors whether in your garden, neighborhood walk, or hiking trail, take a moment to set an intention.
New Release: Lyn Gala's "Desert World Rebirth"
Perhaps, this intention is one of loving kindness, or self-compassion, or gratitude for this world we share. Take the time to become present by awakening your senses. Savor the sensory details of the light, the sounds, the smells.
Notice the way the clouds move in the wind, or pause with a moment of gratitude for your strong legs that carry your body through the world. Allow that beauty around you to strike the chords of your heart, to move you, and to inspire awe. Stepping outdoors has the potential to bring us home to the very heart of who we are—a connection to our true nature as it exists within and all around us.
