NATURE IS OUR BEST TEACHER

Nature exists just as it is, intimidated by no one. In the world of nature, what is known as spirit is that which is. Creatures do not alter their existence to be other than they are; their spirits remain true.

In nature, the passage of time, like the change of seasons, is endless and forever.

Time is not measured; it just exists. As people, we try to measure everything; we want to calculate or evaluate time, and most definitely, we want to control it.

We could learn many things from nature. One very important truth would be simply to be yourself…..for that is your true spirit. Another valuable lesson is to live for today, to be a part of the changes and processes of now, for it is in experiencing this moment that you will be ready to experience the next.

If you live your life touching the present, you will always be living your life completely.
