In our busy and often stressful lives one of the first things to get side-lined is often time spent in Nature.
Our bodies are surrounded by concrete, tarmac, plastic, and steel and our lives crowded by things and activities. Even if we love Nature, we find ourselves spending less and less quality time there, perhaps having just a quick fix in the garden at weekends, or when we are on holiday.
Something I have noticed is that as people get older they are more likely to make time to be in Nature. Perhaps they have more free time but they also seem to realise the importance of that time.
Nature has a wisdom that transcends time and space, a wisdom that is expressed in a powerful quietude of simplicity. In Nature, we have the extraordinary possibility to delve into a shared wisdom deep within ourselves.
Make time to be in Nature as often as you can. Also, bring Nature to you in plants, flowers, and freshly harvested food.
Keep in mind these words by Rachel Carson "Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts."
