Ethereal Nature examines the interface of the metaphysical, the physical, and the cultural spheres ~ how the subtle energies of the universe coalesce into the denser material world, how the Ground of Being manifests itself in the creation, and how humanity experiences and embodies these truths.

Drawing inspiration from wisdom traditions from around the world, Ethereal Nature seeks to explore the mysteries of the spiritual world and its formative influence upon the natural world, and, in turn, the formative influence that the natural world has upon human culture.
This reintegration of the holism of the universe enhances one’s life through a deeper experience of the richness of existence itself.

  1. I knew when I clicked on I should have waited 🙂
    I have to go water my gardens and weed, before it reaches into the 90’s (which is almost here being Texas)
    I enjoyed this few moments of wandering in what feels like a very calm Celtic Zen garden for some reason….and I will return in a bit…
    Thank you for sharing of you and your thoughts…..and pointing me in the direction of your blog

    Blessings to you as you continue on your journey.

    Your fellow traveler,

    • Nancy, thanks for the lovely comment. Your tech blog seemed like a nice juxtaposition to my nature blog, so I couldn’t resist following. Looks like you’ve got some high caliber info there. If you have any questions about immersing yourself in the natural world, don’t hesitate to ask!

      Explore the Great Mystery,

  4. Thank you for following my blog and leading me to yours. I recently went down the Grand Canyon with a guide who said that the canyon was his church. I loved that. I am happy to meet you in this world of cyber-space. 🙂

    • Thank you for returning the favor. Your pictures are wonderful. The natural world has been my church since I was a young boy “meditating” in the grove that surrounded our farm; but of course at that age I didn’t have the language or the awareness to express it. I trust that your trip into the canyon had a spiritual influence as well.

  5. Well hello! Thank you for liking my photos! I appreciate your visit and I’m pleasantly surprised by your nature adventure for the eyes. I believe nature has a lot to share and it speaks very loud if we are listening, looks like you are! Have a wonderful day! I’ll be back I see plenty here I would like to explore! 😀

  6. Thank you for following my blog. I look forward to exploring yours. Nature is so important to me and is more my home than any dwelling. I love how you weave it all together…spirit and nature…spirit in nature.

  7. Thank you for following my blog. I love your spiritual journey and look forward to your posts.

  8. Thanks for checking out my writing and having a read of my ridiculous rants! The premise of your blog sounds absolutely fascinating. I have always believed that the interconnectedness between myself and the spiritual world is facilitated through a connection to nature and the world around me. The notion that nature represents the amalgamation of the physical, metaphysical and cultural spheres is truly fascinating and I think it personally enabled me to gain a sense of belonging to humanity as a whole. I look forward to reading more of your stunningly crafted blog 🙂

    • Hannah, thank you so much for your kind comments. It is very gratifying that others find meaning in my words. Love the lighthearted tone of your blog. I can be overly solemn in my approach to life, as an antidote for that I know where to find you!

  9. Cnawan, Thanks so much for the follow. Though I’ve only been on your blog just briefly, I’m already loving it! Such an intriguing adventure you’re on. I look forward to reading more of you!

  10. Hello Cnawan,

    Greetings from California. Thank you for following my blog and leading me to yours which I am now following. I look forward to reading more of your lovely posts.

    Have a wonderful day,

  11. Thank you for following my blog. I love what you say about “the ground of being manifesting itself in creation” – this really tunes into what I feel about “thin places”. I published a post some time ago about glimpses of eternity: http://scskillman.com/2012/07/27/mystical-experiences-and-glimpses-of-eternity-mini-series-part-1-stirred-by-a-scientist-to-share-a-childhood-religious-experience/ when I wrote about “a sense of ecstatic joy in relation to the universe, brought on by some aspect of nature”. It’s good to meet people online such as yourself who are also on this spiritual journey.

    • Sheila, thanks so much for your comment and the link to your blog post. I just read parts 1 & 2. Fascinating story! I will look into your books. And yes, it is good to meet others online who are on similar spiritual journeys.
      Warm blessings.

  12. Cnawan, thank you for visiting and following my blog. There is so much to explore about the Great Mystery of life and the natural world – so much lost traditional wisdom being re-found, and so much peace and stillness from this chaotic life we’ve created to be experienced.

  13. Thank you for visiting my blog and for deciding to follow it. I have just read your article on the Holy Grail. I liked it very much and would like to follow your blog in return.
    Bright Blessings

  14. Greetings from Japan 🙂

    • Why thank you, Settia! Not sure when I’ll be posting again – hope you don’t have to wait too long. : ) Love your artwork.

  15. You have an interesting blog here, continue the good style.
    Thanks for your visit and following at my blog, much appreciated.
    Your blog looks so good, so you also got a new follower 🙂

    • Why thank you, Renata! Love that phrase you’ve coined for the title of your blog, “Permacooking” – very ingenious.

  16. I have been looking at your beautiful blog and it truly is inspiring..Caro p.s. thank you for visiting mine as well!

  18. Hi Cnawan,
    Thank you for stopping by my blog and having a read. I love the beautiful imagery in your blog pics. The Universe is such a treasure trove of beauty and you capture that so well.

    • Thank you so much, Christa! I am enjoying your writing.

      About my name ~ “Cnawan” is the ancient Anglo-Saxon root of the English word “knowledge”. So, one says it with the “K” sound silent, but very present in one’s mind (this is very important!!!), so it’s as though you begin to say “knowledge”, with the accent on the first syllable, and the 2nd syllable is cut short to “wen”…. (K)naw’-wen

    • You’re welcome – couldn’t resist following the blog the Love Goddess! And thank you for such a high compliment!
