Is not everything nature ?

Updated: May 17, 2022

In the article What do you do for a living? I shared with you my questions about the gap between who we are and what we think we are. This distinction is not insignificant. It limits us in our actions and aspirations.

Detective, I grab my magnifying glass and see that this subject introduces another one. I am thinking of integration, visualization, or being conscious of the mega powerful tools we have at our disposal to live, now, our deepest desires.

But you are going to cut me off at that point and say, "Yo, we said we were going to talk about the concrete aspects of this personal, philosophical, spiritual, or whatever, perspectives !"

My 2 months in an eco-place under construction

(it is better there, is not it?).

How I discovered the existence of eco-places :

Motivated by my need to express myself and my wish to live fully, I begin my research with the intentention of finding an internship around the protection of nature. With the help of my two legs, I go to a conference on Energy Autonomy. The presenter explains the context of his life and how he was brought to live this way. He lives in an eco-place.

What is an eco-place?

It is, according to his description, to aim for a total autonomy of life. In short, questions such as: How do we supply ourselves with energy? How to heat water? How to feed oneself, and so on, are the basis of an eco-place. My curiosity is piqued. I am all ears.

First of all, this art of resourcefulness attracts me a lot. Combining creativity, ingenuity and mutual aid, yum. I love it. Those are some crunchy challenges. More than that, the search for autonomy answers questions of reflection on basic human needs. Perfect. I wanted something concrete, something relevant, here it is!

It goes without saying that these questions are all the more important for my thoughts and intuitions as a city dweller. The material comfort pushed to our current level may be suspect. I lived with everything I needed. Drinking water (coming out of the sink, I am not telling you, crazy stuff), food to feed me, hot water to wash myself, a bed, a roof, and human connections. I really could not have more than that. Already, at this point, it is the material apotheosis.

However, strangely enough in terms of autonomy it is not that. The knowledge of self-help is flying over my head. So, when I heard this speech, I said to myself that it would just be natural and necessary to look at the concept. Also, I had a deep desire to reconnect with a healthier environment. In short. The eco-places answered part of my inner search.

What this experience revealed to me :

I go, therefore, to a family in the mountains. The sun is low and full. I dread working in this heat. I would learn later that in big cities, the air is hard to breathe and heavy in sunny weather. This is due to pollution. In the mountains, it is much more liveable.

Nature a lover, a mother, a place to return to oneself (meditative)

My observations:

- the urban environment had shape my way of being. Without, of course, modifying my essence - impervious to material reality.

- Nature has sent back to me some of my wisdom on:

the notion of time constructed and considered as truth in the city.

life without judgment, without the same use of our thoughts, adaptation and

acceptance to what is.

the beauty of all these energy flows. Poaaaa this beautyyyyy. The stars, the setting sun, the morning rays that draw the forest, the noises and surrounding sounds (nature is very noisy), water that lights up when it comes into contact with the sun. Water, river of life. Fresh air. The night.

I was at home. My body was where it was supposed to be. I observed it being as comfortable and serene as it was in the middle of meditation. Nature in this form, (we come to the title) is my home. Everything is already there. My instincts are awake, my way of acting surprises me. So natural in this unfamiliar environment.

The fact is that nature is everywhere. Everything is nature. The city, the buildings, the cars, the stores - it is all nature. However, its form changes.

This observation is very important.

At present, we are aware of too little about ourselves. I am thinking, here, of our psyche, knowing who we are and why we are here. The urban environment is not conducive to these discoveries. We are surrounded by distracting sounds (whether we are aware of it or not, our body captures the information), waves and beliefs around the rational thought system.

All this directs our attention to the "outside", that is, the material experience, instead of directing it to our source,"inside". This indescribable trick that we explore through meditation, for example.

Each one of us, in this experience, would have a life purpose. This concept does not correspond to the one we are exposed to at school. It is simply the expression of life, of our being, which is unique and individual to you. Thus, there is no right or wrong way. It is just you living, and it brings you closer and closer to who you are. This "path", this "life", or this intention, is only an expression.

Now, we are going to get to know ourselves, we are going to redirect our attention to our inner self, to discover incredible perceptions and knowledge.

Meditation is the most effective educational tool I have ever tested. There are others.

At that moment, everyone will be ok, not to say in bliss, with life. Everything will be fine. A materialization will follow, whether we like it or not. It is the expression of life, of you as a brush that renews with the painter.

In this way, specialization is not an ex ante intention, but a statement, in-fine. The flow of life will be nurtured and cherished with love. Because each of us, being one with our being, can only express this love. We embody it. Let's reconnect with it.

In conclusion, I have regained my deep love for the process of life and this wonderful land. This incredible experience is ours and the experience of all these elements. We are the same, as one, to marvel at what the world is.

I hope I have aroused your curiosity...

I send you a huge hug,

Cloud of kisses,

Thank you
