Most human problems (spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical) stem from our separation from nature. The majority of us spend less than 1% of our lives consciously connected with this intelligent natural system. Nature has the power to counsel and educate, as well as nourish, balance and heal humans the same way it does all of its creatures.
Addictions and other psychological and emotional problems can be healed, our spirits can be rejuvenated, and our self esteem can flourish as it was meant to. Then we can contribute our gifts back to the whole system, thus enhancing the interconnected web of life of which we all are a part.
Think about this: the next tree or plant you pass might provide the oxygen you need to continue living, and you might provide the next breath of carbon dioxide needed by that tree or plant. Thus we all engage in natural recycling and the continuous process of transformation.
