Her name is Nature
I spent decades trying to decide who to follow that I could trust without fail. Finally, it hit me that I was looking for answers in all the wrong placesâ€“ it was not a who, it was an “It.” Her name is Nature, and some people still remember her â€“ she evolved us.
The great thing about Nature is she is available 24/7. Her teachings abound to those whose eyes and minds are open. Take a look outside your window or in the mirror, and there she is in all her beauty. Look down at the soil and the earthworms, without whom we would not exist. Look into the eyes of our fellow animals. Stroke the leaves of a plant.
Here are a few recent lessons from her:
If you build a city below sea level in a hurricane area, it will be wiped out.
Earthquakes and floods may occur anywhere at any time of any magnitude. Living in a structure near oceans/rivers is a crapshoot.
If you do not eat the foods you were evolved to eat, and you do not respect the environment, you will become sick. If you keep it up you will become extinct.
Nature gives us all the answers on how to live, and we, in arrogance and ignorance, ignore her and substitute our own surrogates .
