“Go to the meadows, go to the garden, go to the woods. Open your eyes!”
– Albert Hofmann
These past 6 months I’ve spent my time in nature, on an island off the coast of the state of Washington.
You could say I was at a cross roads in life…
& this time in nature, away from “it all” has been a time of transformation, healing, & experience.
It has been a necessary reminder for me to never forget about nature, because we can’t live without it. Literally.
Once we realize this as a whole, that nature is keeping us alive, then we will all appreciate nature A LOT more.
Hopefully we can do this before nature decides to destroy humans – because as we all know, humans are the biggest threat to nature.
Nature knows this. It really does – & the knowing that nature has is wise beyond any & all human intelligences.
& when you spend a lot of time in nature, with nature, you can come to this realization & understanding.
But humanity has mostly lost its connection with nature. It has forgotten nature – the source which keeps us alive. We’ve taken it for granted. Lots of people think & feel they are superior to nature, & that’s the type of thinking that will end a species.
We need to begin appreciating nature more, genuinely, and we can begin to do this by spending time in nature. You can go in nature with people but sometimes you need to go alone.
Sit with nature. Listen. See. Feel. Love.
