Oh, nature, how I love thee.
In my university days, we studied the poet Wordsworth who was a great lover of nature.
In nature, there is every metaphor for life: sitting on a cactus, getting pushed over by a big wave that rolls off the sea, a raven flying overhead and landing in a tree, beautiful vistas, difficult hills to climb, sore feet, blue sky, nature has it all. It's the great re-balancer.
When you go into nature and you observe all around you, you see life reflected in every thing. Messages and teachings everywhere.
Nature, the great healer.
When you sit on the top of a hill or a mountain that you have climbed, the gods speak to you.
Nature is the temple of the gods.
