Stand still. The forest knows Wh… you are. You must let it find you.
If the eyes and ears are open, the leaves of the trees become as pages of the Bible.
The miracle is not to walk on water, but to walk with love on earth—as if your feet are kissing the ground.
We must remember that our presence alone is a miracle. We must learn to say ‘Yes’ to the miracles of life.
Thich Nhat Hanh
Natuurverbinding draagt niet alleen bij aan het milieu. Het gaat veel dieper dan dat.
Een diepe band met de natuur is in de eerste plaats een geschenk aan onszelf.
Na ‘een lange tijd van menselijk dwalen op object aarde’ komen we thuis bij onze grote moeder, aarde.
The question of reaching sustainability is not about if we will have enough energy, enough food,
or other tangible resources – those we have.
The question is: will there be enough leaders in time?
Dr. Göran Broman and Dr. Karl-Henrik Robèrt
Instead of going through your life reacting to the content of your life… become aware of the now, beyond the phenomena that arises in it. What does that mean, to become aware of the now itself? You become aware of an undercurrent of stillness in which everything happens. You sense it. Even that’s not quite correct…. You realize that you ARE it. And then it’s so easy once you realize you are that deep undercurrent of stillness. The world is no longer problematic. That moment you know yourself to be that, whatever content is here, including the story of “me”, is no longer problematic.
The self does not stop at our skin nor even with our circle of human relationships
but is interwoven with the lives of trees and animals and soil.
