Getting out and enjoying the natural world in all of its beauty can help us transcend the stress and frustration that seem to come with living on Earth, because it helps us understand that life doesn’t have to be a burden.
We don’t have to be as wound up and stressed out as so many people are in this day and age, and all it takes is getting out and looking around to see that life is meant to be colorful, exuberant, and most importantly, fun.
We can learn a lot by getting out to nature, clearing our minds and letting all the stress of ‘normal’ life fade. As we’re learning, ‘normal’ life has been an illusion all along and real life can be found by exploring our consciousness and observing the world around us.
Instead of succumbing to the dull or frustrating aspects of life, let’s return to nature and find our true home in the trees, the flowers, and the potent meditations we can enjoy in a natural setting. Let’s return to love, which creates and encompasses everything in existence, and let’s remember to call on it in situations that aren’t exactly fun.
Let’s remember that life doesn’t have to be so difficult or painful, and if we try hard enough, we can create a life that’s worth living. We can have fun with life instead of just tolerating it, but it requires us to seek rich, fulfilling, liberating experiences.
In my opinion, the best place to find these experiences are in nature and our higher consciousness. People have sought them in material things for centuries and we see where that’s gotten us, so let’s try something new.
Let’s invite spirit into our life as we begin to understand the natural world and the role we’re playing in the grand scheme of things, because we can use our awareness to inform others about nature, spirituality, corruption and everything else that’s worthy of discussion.
With our awareness intact, we can emerge into the world to help others understand that society has been wrong about nature, the things it gives us and the lessons it teaches us.
It takes actually getting out and enjoying the natural world on a regular basis to understand what it can do for us, and routinely connecting with it can enhance our appreciation for life, the planet we live on and the higher consciousness we’re discovering.
We can then help others understand that we’ve been fooled into living lives of constant stress, frustration and lack, but we have to understand this ourselves before we can inform others or strive for social change that reflects the freedom we know in our hearts we deserve.
So let’s give ourselves permission to get out to nature, meditate often, and grow closer with the world that hosts our life. I think it’s essential if we want to grow closer with ourselves, and if we resist it, we’ll resist our own enlightenment.
Instead of putting up so much resistance to life, let’s allow all of it to fade, excitedly explore nature and help others understand that our planet a lot to give us and we need to stop ravaging it if we want to have any significant resources in the future. Nature will teach us so much about life and our higher consciousness if we treat it right, so why not change our direction as a society and learn to respect it?
We’ll be glad we did in the end, because we’ll finally be able to eat from the earth without abusing it, polluting it or ravaging its resources for personal or financial gain. Most importantly, we’ll see nature as a teacher that can help us open the doorway into the higher states of consciousness we seek from gurus and all kinds of other spiritual figures.
Nature teaches us about ourselves, our reality and the realities beyond our conscious understanding, but we have to be open to receive its subtle yet powerful messages. If you’re stressed, upset or generally frustrated with life, allow all of your stress and tension to fade by getting out to nature, meditating, being creative or doing whatever else puts you in touch with yourself.
We need to stay aligned with the Self if we want to help others, and nature can connect us right up and inspire us to be progressive with that connection. It does a lot more for us than we understand at the surface, but we’ll have to get out there on a regular basis to see what it can really do.
I’m a twenty-two year old spiritual writer, blogger and channel for the creative expression of the inner universe, and I created The Culture of Awareness daily news site.
The Culture of Awareness features daily spiritual and alternative news, articles I’ve written, and more. Its purpose is to awaken and uplift by providing material about the fall of the planetary elite and a new paradigm of unity and spirituality.
I’ve contributed to a few different spiritual websites including The Master Shift, Waking Times, Golden Age of Gaia, Wake Up World and Expanded Consciousness. I can also be found on Facebook (Wes Annac and The Culture of Awareness) and Twitter, and I write a paid weekly newsletter that you can subscribe to for $11.11 a month here.
