“The lover of nature is he whose inward and outward senses are still truly adjusted to each other; who has retained the spirit of infancy even into the era of manhood.”― Ralph Waldo Emerson
Mother Nature is a reflection of the divine, creative power of the universe. She flows perfectly and constantly in sync with the divine current. Nature is thereby a profound resource through which we can access the divine. The Earth’s natural state is the constant creation of harmony and balance. Her presence is deeply healing, and you can tap into this power by spending time immersed in nature.
The human world we have created around ourselves is one shaped by our imaginative, innovative and beautiful minds. However, at this current phase of our growing awareness, the collective human mind is colored by the presence of the ego. Ego is simply the presence in our consciousness that results from the illusion that we are separate from one another, from nature, and from the forces of the universe. This illusion colors the mental, physical and spiritual structures we have placed in our civilizations and societies. Excessive time spent in the throes of human society can reinforce this illusion of separateness as we spend time participating in the illusions, fears, or concerns of the race mind—which is an aspect of our common shared beliefs that can often contribute to feelings of dissatisfaction or lack of fulfillment.
There is a world beyond the bustle of human society, however, that has the power to instantly deliver you back to the arms of oneness with God and harmony with all that is. That world lies outdoors in nature. Mother Earth’s infinite depth of harmony and peace flows through you the moment you walk into her forests or bathe in her ocean’s waves. You are as much her child as you are God’s. The body
you inhabit is a gift from Mother Earth, a piece of the Earth itself that you walk in. The Earth has shaped your awareness and stands sentinel over the flow of your spirit. You respond immediately to the flow of nature, whether you’re aware of it or not. At each level of being little changes occur within you in response to immersing yourself in the outdoors. When you stand in the mother’s wild presence, each part of you begins to flow in the same direction as the divine universal current.
Mother Earth has the power to give you the healing and harmony you crave at every level of being. What would you like to manifest or change in your life? Nature can help deliver you the keys. For all things you experience in this physical world must flow through her. Go out into nature today to magnify your spiritual connection. Meditation, play and rest in nature are both restorative and illuminating. Ask the Mother what you would like to know, heal or create. Listen and she will help you to see the way forward.
