If you’re apathetic or uninspired- get into nature.
If you feel disconnected or lonely- get into nature.
If you’re overwhelmed or anxious- get into nature.
Marvel at the intricacies of a spider’s web. Stand beneath the tower of giant Redwoods. Witness the beauty of cycles and seasons, and the sacred way that death fertilizes the next generation of life. How new life springs unexpectedly from the cracks of fallen tree trunks as if to say, “See? You thought there was nothing left here. But we are just beginning!”
If you want to feel astonishment at being alive, to be reminded of the miracle that you are, to experience the consciousness of the universe, go to the forest. It WILL make you happy. And break you open to feel and listen and remember who you are- part of a bigger and interconnected whole.
