Mankind has long had a sacred and spiritual connection to the earth and nature; And not just because we depend on the land to feed, shelter and sustain us. But on a much deeper and profound level. I believe that the earth is a sentient and self regulating entity, that adapts and maintains the suitable conditions for life on our planet. This process seems to happen with ease, a fluid and natural thing, as long as we do not tamper with it. Do we as human beings have the ability to tap into this phenomena, and in doing so, can we use it as a means to re balance our own natural energies, that are often out of balance?
Walking, sitting and just being out in nature, can often evoke in people a sense of awe or wonderment. They feel a strong sense of connectedness or oneness with the natural world; a profound feeling of transcendence (within and without); a belief in a power greater than oneself; and an appreciation of the beauty in nature. It sparks feelings of inner peace, hope, joy and empowerment; promotes physical and emotional well-being, and can bring about ‘significant’ changes in attitude and behaviour.

I read this passage recently, from the book ‘Living Magically’ by Gill Edwards. I would like to share it with you.
“When the god’s created Heaven and Earth, according to an old Eastern story. They were left with just one problem; Where to hide TRUTH. They did not want it to be too obvious, since observing the search, would provide them with great amusement. One god suggested, placing it at the top of the highest mountain; another on the furthest star. A third god said, it should be hidden in the deepest and darkest abyss, and another the dark side of the Moon; the oldest and wisest god said, ‘No. We will hide the Truth inside the heart of each and every human being. That way, they will search for it, all over the Universe, before discovering it.”
