Chapter 7 - Nature
“We have forgotten what rocks, plants and animals still know. We have forgotten how to be; to be still, to be ourselves, to be where life is: Here and Now.”
We depend on nature not only for our physical survival, but also to show us out of the prison of our own minds. We got lost in doing, thinking, remembering—lost in a maze of complexity and a world of problems.
Thinking is a stage in the evolution of life. Nature exists in innocent stillness that is prior to the arising of thought. The tree, the flower, the bird, the rock are unaware of their own beauty and sacredness. Nature can bring you to stillness. That is its gift to you.
