Funny as we, humans, crave deep nature connection but often times forget to notice its reaction to our presence. We tend to undervalue it but Nature is really a true gift. Why? Because:
Natures gives without demanding
Nature listens without interrumpting
Nature heals with no side effects
Nature cares without having second intentions
Natures exists without destroying
Nature speaks without making sound/in silence
What Nature will not do though, is to be forever here for us if we do not treat her right.
Let’s not forget that what we do to Nature, we do ultimately to ourselves. So let’s protect it. Let’s take very good care of it. Let’s cherish it every single day of our lives. As Gary Snyder once said, “Nature is not a place to visit. Nature is home.” ♥
I have spent the last week in the UK and it felt so good to be back there.
It was a beautiful and bright Sunday on the Kent seaside and, for that reason, my boyfriend and I decided to drive to the beach to watch the sun setting over the vast blue ocean.
It is no secret that Nature is fuel for the soul and I love the power that sunset gazing has over me. It always manages to bring me into the present moment and feel grateful for being alive. There is something so special about the way how the sun seems to melt and drip into the water; something so inexplicably unique about how it gently kisses the ocean good night (…) and it was as if life had stopped whilst we watched the live show in the sky. It was just me, my partner and the glorious spectacle of dancing colours we had in front of us – the true epitome of fleeting beauty. Nothing else seemed to exist or matter.
Isn’t it wonderful how Mother Nature is capable of truly enriching our lives if only we let it? If we force ourselves to stop and shift our focus to appreciating the surrounding natural beauty?
