I recently read an article that highlighted to me the wonders of nature that we tend to over look or take for granted.
A teacher in the article has been teaching his young students for many years as to the life cycle of salmon and the intricacies of nature. I can’t imagine that people ever stop to think about this process of natural creation and how we, on this planet, are exposed to such wondrous behaviour and the miracles of the universe.
Currently the human race is experiencing a shift in consciousness. But this shift is pulling in two different directions from two different schools of understanding. Those that truly connect with nature and the source of their being, and those that are connected with material wealth, performance and money. There is a superficiality with the latter that detaches one from the depths of truth and awe. It stops people bathing in the magic of everything around us and turns each action into a quantification or a bottom line; a hard number or fact. This is exactly what salmon farming and any other type of mass consumer farming does for that matter. It’s about numbers and power.
Instead of appreciating the intricacies of nature, nature is turned into business, a science project a mass production to serve a greedy hungry population and the magic is lost!
Take a moment today to understand the intricacies of nature on a deeper level, turning away from mass consumption and greed and pay attention to the wonders of nature.
When we allow the time to take in our surroundings, we are able to witness some amazing things. Awe & bewilderment can be found in the simplest, yet unfathomable, creations of nature. I recorded this film a few weeks ago and have just completed editing. I spread this video to promote nature and to encourage a conscious development towards a sustainable future.
Today I was allowed away from work early, so I seized the opportunity to take time to connect with the awesome planetary system that we are a part of. As people go through their day to day lives, we tend to forget the bigger picture, we forget to zoom out of our personal activities, achievements, problems, interactions, and realize the wonder of what is actually around us. I took time to admire the sun drenching the sky in pink, followed by a piercingly bright full moon, shuffling across the sky in a much more majestic splendor, than the word shuffling implies.
It is very important to re-connect with yourself and the awe that surrounds you, that which enables your very existence. The sun and the moon seem to go about their business faultlessly, yet without receiving the appreciation that they deserve for such an achievement that still astounds me each time I allocate time to contemplate.
Allow time for yourself to nurture in nature, this way you will have more to give.
