"Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better." - Albert Einstein
This is something I choose to live by. When I step out of the everyday world I find a fulfillment within myself.
Going into nature and being surrounded by the wisdom of the trees, the beauty of the grasses, the inspiration of the mountains, and the warmth of the sun I can feel the subtle peace enter my body, mind, and spirit. I am now home once again.
When looking deep into nature, I am looking deep within myself, realizing once again that I am part of this thing called Mother Earth. I am what makes up the divine being of the planet.
When I step back into this world, back into my home, and back into myself I realize how important it is to cherish the land and everything that makes up the land. We must nurture and protect the precious life that is all around us.
When calming the mind, detaching from the ego, and connecting to the soul you are able to find the true meaning of happiness. Nature is what helps me to do these things. I was able to find my passion in life; healing through nature and how I could help others with the power of nature.
There are many ways to make a deeper connection to Mother Nature.
