Each day as the sun warms the earth, we are graced by the gifts of our planet.
Nature provides us with all we need to not only survive,
but be well and whole on every level.
We are a part of the web of life on this planet,
and Nature teaches us how we can be fully balanced within ourselves
and in relation to every other living thing.
We're shown these gifts every day if we're paying attention.
There is no true separation between us and the natural world.
Just as our bodies are made up of billions of tiny atoms,
so too are we the building blocks of our living world.
As things are happening in Nature, so too, are we affected.
Night and day, seasons and cycles influence us
on a physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual level.
Our own health affects the health of the planet.
John Muir wisely noticed:
"When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.”
We are all connected, all One, all part of something larger than ourselves.
When we've forgotten that connection, we're incomplete.
That imbalance can reveal itself in different ways:
physical illness; mental instability or unhappiness;
a feeling of something missing from our lives even when things are "good",
or a complete sense of confusion and lack of direction in our lives.
We are part of something greater, attached to all other living things,
dependent on one another for our highest and greatest good.
